Need to sell your home fast?
The typical methods-listing your home on real-estate websites, putting a sign in the front yard, using clever staging techniques, and holding open houses-aren’t always effective. But don’t despair! We’ve got five creative ways to find buyers for your home.
1. Find Buyers By Crowdsourcing
You’ve already posted your real-estate listing on your Facebook and Twitter, and still aren’t getting results? Try putting your money where your mouse is! Offer up a finder’s fee or referral bonus.
Ask your friends and followers to share your post, and tell them that if their share or retweet leads to a buyer, you’ll give them cash money. Depending on your finances (and your friends’), $500 or $1000 might be enough to entice them. If you can spare more, then by all means, offer a larger finder’s fee.
2. Go Live with Your Listing
Facebook Live is a fun, creative way to show potential buyers all of the features and amenities your house offers. This technique can also work in tandem with the bonus we suggested above; have your connections send out invitations to the live event.
After you’re done with the event, be sure to keep the footage on your Facebook, and transfer it to YouTube, as well. A video provides a better sense of the home’s unique properties than a series of still photographs, and can entice buyers who aren’t local enough to take a tour.
If you’re not comfortable on camera, consider hiring a photogenic friend, or even a local acting student. You can write up a script for them to follow, while you play videographer.
3. Be the Hostess with the Mostest
One fun, effective way to find buyers for your home is to host a truly memorable open house. Ditch the sad cheese and cracker plate in favor of a catered event with entertainment. We’ve even heard of sellers who hired a food truck to come park in the home’s driveway and hand out free food.
If your home is suitable for families, include some kid-friendly diversions. Renting a bounce house, hiring a face-painter, or handing out ice cream will be sure to attract families with children to your home’s open house.
4. Channel Your Creativity
Want to attract attention on Craigslist or another listing site? Find a creative way to enumerate your home’s many benefits. Use humor and eye-catching graphics, like one woman who needed a roommate did.
You could even create a WordPress site just for selling your home. Pour your design and copywriting skills into making it attractive enough to go viral, or hire design and marketing students to help.
5. Sell Your House for Cash
Lastly, you can sell your home for cash by contacting Florida Cash Home Buyers. This is a great solution for people who simply can’t wait to attract a traditional buyer, and who need the quick cash infusion.
Selling your home this way is also an easy way to deal with homes that are in foreclosure, tied up in probate, or seriously damaged by a natural disaster or other circumstances.
