3 Unique Ways To Help Your Real Estate Agent Sell Your Home

Posted on: 14 October 2016

If you're like most people who are selling their home, you want to get it sold as quickly as possible. Your real estate agent should be invaluable when it comes to advertising, but there are a few things you can do to help them sell your home fast – consider using one or more of the following ideas:

Have T-Shirts Printed

An awesome way to get your home seen by people in your community and beyond is to have custom t-shirts made for your friends and family to wear while they're out and about. Take an HD photo of your home on a sunny day and then have it printed on t-shirts along with a phone number and the words "for sale" or "buy me" on it somewhere.

Choose shirts that are bright so they're easy to spot in a crowd, and make sure that the photo of your home takes up with entire front or back of the shirt so people can see it well. Ask your friends and family members to wear their shirts at least once a week until your home sells.

Host Open House Auctions

Instead of hosting traditional open houses while trying to sell your home, consider hosting auctions instead. This will not only give you an opportunity to attract potential buyers who would have otherwise passed on a "boring" open house event, but it will also give you a chance to get rid of any artwork or furniture you don't want to take along when you move.

You can auction off couches, paintings, tables, and even electronics at the events, and at the same time promote the sale of your house by hanging up posters and handing out fliers. You can even advertise a raffle for those who decide to make an offer on the house and give away an entire room of furniture to the winner.

Plant Some New Trees in the Yard

Landscaping with new trees can increase your property value by up to 20 percent, which creates more value for potential buyers and allows you to adjust your asking price accordingly. Planting some new trees in the yard will also improve curb appeal which should impress lookers when they pull up for a tour of the house.

Deciduous trees are a great option because they offer weather protection throughout the year, as they are full of leaves in the summer for natural shade protection and lose their leaves in the winter so the sun can heat things up. Your new trees will help keep energy costs down for the new owners too, which is something you can advertise.

These tips and tricks should help make it easier for your real estate agent to get your home sold so you can move on to the new life experience that's waiting for you. Look at real estate for sale in your area to get more ideas.
