Selling Your House Fast When the Market is Slow
Yes, the real estate bubble has burst. Contrary to what you might think in light
of this, it doesn’t mean that your house won’t sell for a reasonable price. If you
adjust your expectations (as the market itself has been adjusted by the sub-prime
mortgage crisis), you get a timely sale at fair market value.
Be sure your house is ready to show at all times. Convenient access is a very important
factor to prospective buyers. If you require an appointment, real estate agents
may bypass your property when they’re casing your neighborhood with potential buyers.
Modest repairs should be done, or your will be competing with low-priced homes on
the foreclosure market. Be sure your home is priced at or slightly below market
value. A good asking price should generate multiple market, even though demand for
homes has slowed.
