to Sell Homes Fast in St. John's, Newfoundland
We have all
heard there are only 3 factors that determine if and when a home sells: Price, Condition, and Location it’s
not that this isn't true; it’s just not the whole truth! You can have the
greatest product or service in the world if people don't know it exists it does
not matter. You need to get your property in front of the people who can and
want to promote it, here are some tips to help make that happen
Make it easy for them
to get in
can’t get into your home when they want to view it, they will more than likely
move on. Time is not always on the Buyers side, they have busy schedules as
well, they may be on a house hunting trip, and as a rule, feel that if your
home is on the market it should be ready to view when they want to view. If you
must have restriction on when people can view, you have a small child, or
operate a home business such as a daycare, be upfront. Indicate it in the write
up on the property or let your agent know to tell parties that inquire that
they can't view at specific times.
to the right people
You not only need to market to the
Buyer directly you also need to be marketing to the Agents. I have sold many homes to buyers that they

the neighbourhood; they heard the house was in disrepair,
street was too busy, etc.
need a reason to go to bat for you. I
Sold this house in 24 hours and got multiple offers, I had 50 plus agents through the 1st

right incentives will increase viewings.
your home Pop
You don’t have to spend a
ton of money getting your home ready for sale, but you do want to make sure you
maximize its positive features. Simple
things like Lighting, Opening windows before a viewing to let fresh air through
the house, and making sure your closets are not packed to the rafters can make
a big difference in how potential buyer view your home. A well staged home will sell on
average in 30 days versus an un-staged home taking 90 days.
