There is alot of competition out there, it takes strategy and out of the box thinking when it comes to selling your home. There needs to be some marketing involved. This can be expensive and difficult to do when there are many other homes that are similar and also listed for sale.
So how do you stand out? Our latest post will discuss unconventional real Estate selling tactics, and how you can use them to sell your home fast in Spokane.
Have An Open House
The people who go toan open house have more then likely seen many others (many many more) just like your house. The same walk through, the same boring food and the same speech. People who go to open houses know the process, it can feel stiff and most houses are not presented to showcase the true personality of the building. Consider this instead and do something different. Depending on the time of the year, if the sun is out. Throw a backyard BBQ. This will show potential buyers how mych fun can be had at the house in a social gathering and they will feel more comfortable in a more relaxed setting. This creates a mental picture, really allowing them to feel at home.
Try an Unconventional, Humorous Ad
Most Real Estate Ads look the same. They are described as “eligant, beautiful, breathtaking” and then it goes on to say that its the most desirable neighborhood. SO many of the ads blend in together because they lack creativity. Try something different instead of the same generic boring ads that others do. Maybe something funny like “Man Cave For Sal,(also comes with 4 additional bedrooms!)” The man cave isnt the point. The point is that it peeks peoples interest and they read the entire ad. People tend to remeember things that are out of the ordinary, and the use of humor makes you seem human as opposed to the typical, robotic, real estate ads.
Lets Talk Big Ticket Items
There has been a new thrent that recently emerged, is enticing buyers by throwing in a big ticket item. Something they may have always wanted, but most likely not going to buy for themselves. Depending on the location throwing in a boat or even a car can be an option! If its in the sale budget you may want to do something that extravagant, consider a new big screen tv, or a “credit” towards furniture or new appliances. People like to get something for free, even if you have already factored it into your desired sale price.
Take Your Staging Up A Notch
Most people know you need to stage a home to really make buyers fall in love. However, by kicking it up a notch, you will make your home absolutely unforgettable. Think about details you would see at a high-end residence or luxury hotel . Hang only the most elegant, fluffy hand towels in the bathroom that have never been used. Present finger foods on an elegant serving tray. Even if these aren’t items you would use in your everyday life, bringing them into your home during these moments will make visitors to your home feel a sense of luxury. This will help your home stand out among others they might have been looking at.
Get High Tech
Spending a little extra money upfront can lead to some big returns down the line. Think about hiring a videographer to make a video of your house, but have them make it look like the preview to a Hollywood blockbuster, voice over and everything! Or have professional photos taken using a drone this will give the buyer a birds eye view of the neighborhood. The unique, aerial perspective, will add a whole new dimension! People will be able to “get a lay of the land.” Having some great photos of the local area can help potential buyers get a real sense of what living in your home will be like!
Just Like High Scool, Have a Sleepover!
Well not really. If you are no longer living in the home, and you have a buyer who is on the fence, offer them the option to spend a night in the home! This way they can really get a sense of what living there and waking up in that house will be like!
