Five Things You Can Do to Sell Your Oklahoma Real Estate Faster

Sep 6, 2008
If you really need to sell your home and you want to get rid of that Oklahoma real estate as fast as you can there are some tricks that you can use to get buyers to make an offer the same day that they see it. Use these tips to make your Oklahoma real estate more attractive to buyers so that it will sell faster:

1. Put out copies of all the documents relating to the Oklahoma real estate -- When you have an open house, or when someone comes to view the property make sure that you have put out copies of all the documents about the property.

Make up a brochure with facts about the property, a list of everything that has been replaced or updated, the asking price, and a list of mortgage lenders. Also put out a sheet that has photos of the house and a list of reasons why they should buy the house.

2. Stage the home -- When buyers walk into a home they want to be able to instantly see themselves living there. Staging the home will give the home a lived in but very stylish look so that the prospective buyers will get a visual image of the home filled with furniture and other items. Staging a house will help it sell faster more than 80 percent of the time.

3. Fix up the yard -- Curb appeal is very important when you're trying to sell a home. Mow the lawn, weed the garden and attend to the flowers. If you have a lot of brown, dead grass you should consider spending some money on having a landscaper come in and re-sod the yard. If the house doesn't look great from the outside people won't bother coming in to see the inside.

4. Clean the home -- Hire a cleaning company to come in and scrub the place from top to bottom to make sure it's sparkling clean. Nothing will put off prospective buyers as fast as a dirty house. You want the house to look and feel brand new and a very thorough cleaning can give the house a great face lift.

5. Plan your open house for a strategic time of day -- If your home has a great garden that is cool and refreshing in the afternoon, plan your Open House for late afternoon and set out a table in the garden with refreshments to highlight the garden.

If you have a great view at sunset plan the Open House for early evening so everyone can see the gorgeous view. If you have a fabulous breakfast nook that is bright and airy in the morning plan your Open House for early morning so that people will see the value of the breakfast nook.

Play up the strengths of your Oklahoma real estate and it will sell a lot faster.
