Once it gets started, life sure doesn’t like to slow down. So how do you sell a home when life is busy?
Between work, leisure, family time, and shuttling the kids around from one extracurricular activity to the next, you might find the idea of actually putting your house on the market to sell completely unthinkable.
How could you ever make time to clean your house (and keep it clean), pack your stuff, list your home, schedule showings, and close the deal? That’s exactly what will cover in this busy homeowner’s guide to selling your house.
Nothing interrupts your busy schedule more than having three showings scheduled throughout the same day—morning, noon, and night. Now in addition to everything else on your to-do list, you’ve got to factor in barely being able to be at home at all.
A great way to avoid this problem is to ask your real estate agent to cluster showings so that they are grouped together. Three showings all within two hours is a lot easier to fit into your schedule, and the inconvenience isn’t likely to turn buyers off.
Another excellent way to efficiently show off your home to numerous buyers is by holding an open house. You’ll have to give up your space for several hours, but you’ll probably take care of dozens of showings in a small amount of time.
To cut down on the time you need to spend actually keeping your house presentable to buyers, consider hiring professional cleaning and landscaping services during the time your house is on the market.
With weekly service, your home and lawn will always be ready for viewings. Along the same lines, consider renting a temporary storage unit for all of your little extra odds and ends so that once you’ve got them stowed away they don’t find themselves back out in the mix again.
While these services might stretch your budget a tiny bit, the added expense really won’t cost you too much considering it’s only a short term investment. The savings to your stress level alone will be worth it.
If you need to sell a home when life is busy, you don’t want to have selling a home on your mind for months on end. It can be like an annoying fly buzzing around your head that you just can’t get rid of.
So work with your real estate agent to find a price that is fair but competitive in your market. By pricing a little bit lower than what similar houses are listed for, you could attract many more buyers and seal the deal within weeks rather than months.
