Have you considered selling your house in Phoenix? Maybe you’ve just gotten your ideal job in another city and need to relocate as fast as possible, or you’ve found the perfect home across town, so you need the equity from your current home to put down. Even if you aren’t in a hurry, you may want to expedite the sale process. This will prevent you from waiting on months of transformation to make your home spotless and show-ready.
The Phoenix real estate market can be volatile and difficult to predict. Selling your house in Phoenix isn’t as simple as it is in places like Brooklyn. In Brooklyn, a hot seller’s market ensures several bids within days of listing.
In reality, the typical Phoenix home took around 2-3 months from listing to sale in 2016. So, what can you do to hasten the process? We’ve gathered information from three years of selling homes in Phoenix to build this guide. We’ll show you how to sell your house quickly.
We provide helpful tips on how to expedite every step of the process; from planning to list, preparing your home for exhibitions, and listing your home on the market.
Plan to sell in the Spring or early summer
One of the tricks to selling your house in Phoenix fast is to list it in the Spring . Buyers interest is usually at its peak during this season. Buyers are more likely to shop at this time of year due to a combination of mild weather, longer days, and, if they have children, a need to finish moving just before the start of the school year.
While this seasonality is most evident in cities with extreme winters, such as Boston. MLS data reveals that it still exists in Phoenix. Although home sales continue to occur in the winter, you can expect to spend more time on the market if you sell between November and March.
Conduct research to price your home
It may entice a home seller to list their home with an excessively high asking price. However, they should understand that the longer the house is on the market, the longer their move will be stalled. The average day on sale for a house in Phoenix is 72 days, which adds almost three months to the timetable of a home seller.
Cosmetic Repairs are essential.
Don’t undervalue the importance of a fresh coat of paint. Some businesses sell hundreds of homes every month, and we see increased demand in homes with new decor, carpet, and appliances. Investing in a deep scrub, lawn maintenance, and fresh, neutral-colored paint can be necessary fixes to get a house up to today’s buyer’s expectations. Hiring local tradespeople for painting and lawn maintenance, or even a TaskRabbit to assist with decluttering, will shorten the time it takes to complete these activities. If a seller is in a hurry, they can contact companies that will do it for them.
Highlight the things prospective buyers would love about your neighborhood
Buyers consider not just the design of your house but also the area in which it is situated, including nearby area highlights on the listing, such as hiking trails, golf courses, and entertainment and sports facilities. To begin, consider the kind of potential buyers that may be interested in living in your house. This will give you a head start.
