Tips for selling a home in a timely manner

The average home stays on the market for 68 days before it is sold. However, there are steps that Illinois sellers and others can take in an effort to get their homes off of the market as quickly as possible. For example, it may be a good idea to consider selling to investors who purchase homes in their current condition. This may allow a homeowner to sell without having to spend time or money on repairs. Homeowners may also be able to avoid paying an agent to help with the transaction.

Those who are planning on upgrading their homes before putting them on the market should focus their efforts in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. These are the spaces that buyers tend to be the most interested in when evaluating a property. Sellers are encouraged to get rid of as much clutter as possible inside the home. Doing so makes it easier for potential buyers to imagine how they would use a living room or kitchen.

It is also a good idea to focus on creating curb appeal when putting a home on the market to make it feel more welcoming. Adding curb appeal could be as easy as mowing the lawn, putting in some new lights or putting a fresh coat of paint on the garage door.

When selling a home, it is generally a good idea to disclose as much information about the property as possible. This may allow a buyer to make an educated decision that he or she is less likely to renege on. An attorney may help a seller create a disclosure list that complies with local or state laws. An attorney may also answer a buyer's questions or take other steps to help sell a property in a timely manner.
