Selling a home from out of state can be a challenge; unfortunately, it’s not always a choice. For example, maybe you had to relocate right away for work and haven’t been able to sell your house yet–or maybe you were bequeathed the property of a deceased relative. Whatever the reason might be, the following are four tips to help you sell your home from another state:
- Prepare the house – If you were left the property by a relative, then you’ll want to visit the home in person in order to organize and remove belongings, especially those that might have some value. You’ll want to make sure the house isn’t cluttered as well. If you have to, you might want to consider renting a storage unit. If the house was always yours, then you’ll want to make sure it’s staged. Empty houses make a poor impression on sellers.
- Price the house properly – If you want to sell your house quickly, make sure it’s priced properly. Overpricing it will make it difficult to sell.
- Have a point of contact – Have someone that can check in on your house regularly and that can provide access to the house to potential buyers or to your real estate agent. They can also help prepare the house for sale.
- Use a local real estate agent – You’ll want to work with a real estate agent local to the area that can help you price the home properly, prepare it for sale, and attract motivated buyers as well as show the house on your behalf.
