The Most Powerful and Low-Cost Method for Selling a Home Fast

A clean, organized home does more to sell your home compared to any other low-cost selling strategy. This is according to a 2011 survey conducted here at HomeGain, which questioned over 600 real estate agents across the U.S. and found 99 percent of them recommend thoroughly cleaning and decluttering the home before putting it up for sale. It also showed a return on investment (ROI) of 586-percent simply by cleaning and decluttering.

These survey results make sense. Would you buy a home that was cluttered and messy? The answer is probably a defiant “No!” First impressions are critical when selling a home, so it’s extremely important to make your home look its best during an open house or showing.

Decluttering

The first step is to declutter the home. In most cases, the more stuff you get rid of, the better. A minimalist approach will appeal to the highest percentage of potential buyers.

So, start by clearing out obvious trash, junk and boxes filled with stored items. Either temporarily store these items in a storage unit or family member’s home, or trash the items if it’s something you never use or need.

Everyone Pays For Leads

I have been an avid HomeGain user since I started in Real Estate and was thinking recently about why I use them and how other real estate agents gain their leads. Following this train of thought I came to the conclusion that everyone pays for leads one way or the other. Some do it through Homegain while others may “farm an area” sending out post cards, flyers, and other forms of “touch” to an area. Some choose to pay for their leads by advertising in the local newspaper or on a billboard. In the end we all pay for leads!

The question is: What is the most cost efficient method to garner your leads?

We choose to use a couple of the HomeGain products for leads. One sends potential customers directly to our idx to search for homes in Columbus, GA where we capture them in our website backend. Another product gives us a chance to compete for buyers and sellers through the HomeGain system. Either way the goal is to gain clients for our business. We have found both of these methods to be very effective and for that reason have continued to use both products for about 8 years now.

HomeGain 2012 FSBO vs. REALTOR® Survey Finds Home Sellers Fare 120% Better in Getting Their Homes Sold Using a REALTOR® Than Selling On Their Own

Sixty-six percent of home owners that used a REALTOR® to sell their home were successful vs. 30 percent of FSBO’s, reflecting a 120 percent higher closing rate for those home sellers using a REALTOR®.

Eighty-five percent of homeowners that used a REALTOR® to try and sell their home said they would use a REALTOR® again for their real estate needs.
