How to Quick Sell Your Rehab Deal (Once It's Fixed)

Dec 24, 2007
Okay, it's time. All the hard work is finished. It's time to sell that house or investment property you bought as a fixer upper. You've toiled, or paid others to toil for you; now you want to profit from a successful sale. As well, you want to get a return on the labor costs you paid to bring this property up to snuff.

How do you sell the place in the shortest time possible?

After all, you don't want to keep making payments on it. It's ready for sale and that's what you hope to accomplish, the sale. Your approach to selling quickly will determine whether you're soon on the way to the bank, or a therapist.

Certainly, there are concerns to selling your home or investment property. Concerns that can keep you awake at night. To make the selling process as smooth and painless as possible you need to do certain things.

What to Consider when Quick Selling a Fixer Upper

* Does your sale price adequately reflect the investment into upgrades (with profit added onto the price of the upgrades)?
* Do you have the 'intestinal fortitude' to handle a longer selling period in case things do not proceed as rapidly as you wish? The thought of all that work and no quick return can be upsetting.
* Have you investigated the market, to see what other homes you knew were 'fixed up' are selling for in your area?
* Will you be passing real estate fee savings onto buyers?
* If advertised as 'recently renovated' can you discuss the particulars of the renovation intelligently with buyers? This applies to work done to your place by outside trades' people.

There's a wealth of information available to you when it comes to selling your house or investment property. Check books, house and home magazines and the Internet for information related to selling real estate. Look for specific content on selling a newly renovated fixer upper. Look for those who offer legitimate real estate tutorials and systems that help you sell your home for maximum profit.

When you offer your house for sale, highlight the improvements. Buyers want to know of recent modern upgrades that enhance the value of the property. Kitchens and bathrooms are rooms that buyers love to see upgraded. Make sure these rooms receive maximum exposure during an open house or showing, if they were the target of your renovation.

An excellent way to flip your home or investment property quickly is to 'blitz the market'. Don't perform a gradual staged approach to getting the word out. Take advantage of your own personalized system of high impact marketing. Remember, your aim is to sell your house immediately. The longer it's on the market the harder it is to sell. When buyers see your listing 'still there', they may feel it's not a desirable property or location.

You can blitz the market by:

* Talking it up, word of mouth goes a long way.
* Advertising in local newspapers
* Using the classifieds' on the web
* Using websites that promote private selling of real estate
* Distributing your own pamphlets, posters, or brochures

Have your showings and open houses for a set number of days, however many you decide; then indicate a specific date when you will take offers. Your goal is to generate multiple offers that could precipitate a bidding war.

Take advantage of all resources available to spur on the sale of your house or investment property. They're out there for you. All designed to help you quick sell that fixer upper.
