10 Tips to Reduce Your Days On Market

It’s true that real estate sales are dependent on the right price, location and condition of a home, but sometimes there’s a little more to it than that. If you really want to reduce your days on market when selling your home, here is what you need to do.

Tips to reduce days on market

Here, now, is how you can reduce your days on market, none of which include lowering your price.

1- De-clutter

• Begin packing things away before you show your home
• Store your things off site or in a non-intrusive part of the home

2- De-personalize

• Buyers need to visualize themselves in the home – aim to be generic
• A coat of fresh paint will help “neutralize” the home

3- Clean up

• A one-day professional cleaning costs a few hundred dollars, and will result in a solid asking price or less days on market

4- Breathe life into curb appeal

• Invest in quick, simple fixes in the front and back of the home
• Mow the lawn, trim the hedges and plant a few flowers

5- Complete the to-do list

• The smaller your to-do list, the smaller a buyer’s will be, giving them less bargaining room.

6- Get a pre-listing inspection – Set their minds at ease

• You can either fix any issues found in the report, or reflect the repairs needed in the price

7- Be accessible

• Check your e-mail and voice mail often and respond kindly and quickly
• Show the home on a regular basis

8- Have exceptional photos – A picture is truly worth 1,000 words

• Make sure your home is show ready for the pictures
• If you’ve made changes to your home since your initial photos were taken, have new pictures taken

9- Spread the word!

• Get the message out to as many people as you can about your home being for sale (Facebook, Kijiji, etc.)
• Use the tools in Your Account – including the feature sheets, open houses, etc.

10- Get buyer feedback

• Get the names and contact information of potential buyers
• Ask if they will be making an offer – if not, ask what they liked and didn’t like about the property
• If you do have to make a price reduction in the future or improve the property, tell them about the change and invite them back
