Sure it does come with benefits but is there a reason why you shouldn’t sell your property during a buyer’s market? There really isn’t that much of a difference but most investors prefer doing things in their convenience – and real estate doesn’t always work at your convenience. As tough as it may sound, there are ways in order for you to sell in a buyer’s market. All it takes is a little push and a bit of thinking outside the box. SellUsHomes is your one-stop-shop for everything you need to know in selling your house regardless of the state of the market. Here’s how you can survive the tough competition of the buyer’s market.
Run a quick real estate market analysis
Otherwise known as a comparative market analysis, this is a must whether you’re a buyer or a seller. The purpose of this is to explore a specific market (in this case, a buyer’s market) and the properties included in it. Use this to compare different properties listed in the same local market from a pricing standpoint. These real estate comps or comparables will serve as your basis for a pricing strategy for selling your property.
Since this is more commonly used during a buyer’s market, this gives you a hint as a seller of what the other properties in your locale are selling for.
Make it stand out
In this case, your property. Don’t make your situation in a buyer’s market as tough as it is. Giving your house a fresh coat of paint, decluttering and removing your personal belongings helps tremendously in giving you the upper hand. You’d be surprised if you go the extra mile in going for a kitchen upgrade or renovation. This would most likely lead to closing a deal sooner rather than later.
Lighting up you property gives the illusion that it has more space than it actually has. If you manage to do this in a way that allows natural light to flood in, the better. Do everything you can to brighten up your property to appeal to your buyers.
Maintaining your house doesn’t end with its interior. Remember, the first thing that people see when they check your property is the outside. Unkempt and overgrown bushes signals your buyers that the owner probably doesn’t care for the house at all and perhaps they wouldn’t even want to enter inside. These buyers have a lot of other choices in their current market so don’t underestimate the importance of making your house stand out.
Give your property as much visibility as possible
Aside from obviously listing it on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and other major real estate platforms, a seller should always think of ways outside the norm to up their game. The power of social media should be used whenever possible. For example, the use of the Facebook Marketplace would be beneficial for you especially for young buyers. The convenience that this gives buyers is that this gives them a quick preview of the property and gives them the opportunity to add inquiries before showing up in person. Some investors have been making a habit of changing the featured photo on their post online. The reasoning behind this is that most online users usually have a very short attention span and simply skip over the the other photos that you might have included. The kitchen may appeal to one person but the living room to another.
Easier said than done. You can never control the things around you but you can definitely control your mindset. Mulling over how you can sell your property fast and with the most profit as possible wouldn’t help at all. The real estate market can change very quickly so put your best foot forward and always be prepared no matter what the state of the market is. These tips and tricks don’t differ too much when it comes to selling in a seller’s market. You just need to do a little bit of effort and research to increase your chances of making a sale.
