I Can't Sell My Home, Help!
There are many factors leading to why your home isn't selling, but I'm here to tell you that EVERYTHING SELLS in Miami. As your top real estate agent, it is our job to be upfront and truthful from the beginning on things that may turn potential buyers off (i.e. outdated interiors, dirty pools, price etc) that may affect the results you the seller are looking for. It could be as simple as a price adjustment or perhaps the exterior needs a fresh coat of paint to brighten things up, remember BUYERS ARE EMOTIONAL and they want to envision themselves and their family living in the home so make their first impression a great one.
As a single 32 year old man still in the dating pool (sorry mom!) I have come up with the following theory in regards to selling: I always tell my sellers that listing a home is a lot like online dating, you want to make sure that what you're putting out there is exactly what they will see when they meet it in person. If it's not, then you have already lost the buyer before they even step in the house. If you follow my tips in the video and below then this is the key on how to sell your house in 5 days.
How to Sell a House Fast
As I mentioned above it is our job to get you the highest price and best terms in the shortest amount of time. It is painful when I see such fantastic homes in Pinecrest, Coral Gables and Miami Beach get listed from agent to agent with no improvements in price or obvious fixes. So the million dollar question is 'how to sell your house fast with a realtor' and the answer is work together and be open to constructive feedback.
If your interior walls are a mustard yellow color because that is what you like then that is fine but you can't expect buyers to love it. For example, the photo to the left used to be the said yellow color and the seller was on the market for over a year. After a fresh paint job, a few simple fixes and a serious deep clean The Michael Group ended up closing the deal for $400,000 MORE than their last offer with the previous agent. In short, be open to making those changes and presenting the house in neutral tones and plain walls. If you have the budget to make any recommended changes then do it, it will reflect the offers you receive.
I always say 'less is more and even less is better' so here are some creative ways to sell a house fast in Miami:
Clean and Declutter
Be Flexible with Showings
Hire an Agent (It's worth it)
So If you find yourself wondering why I can't sell my home fast when you're seeing so much activity around you don't panic. Just take some to reassess your goals, listen to the feedback and understand the process and work it takes on how to sell a house fast in Miami.
