Thereâ€™s been nothing conventional about the real estate market over the past two years. Incredibly high sale price results, the lead times, the low interest rates, and the lockdowns â€” itâ€™s been the hottest sellerâ€™s market in modern history.Â
And weâ€™re still in it.Â
Itâ€™s also been a time of uncertainty, fear, and a lack of freedom. As the nation continues to handle the cases and ramifications of the pandemic, many people have chosen to sell their property remotely.Â
This trend is also spurred by thousands of people moving out of urban areas or returning to their home states. Whether itâ€™s out of desire to socially distance or you now live elsewhere, remote selling is a viable solution.
Like people buy houses remotely, you can sell that way, too. Virtual selling is putting your property on the market and securing a new buyer, without you needing to be there.Â
It can be difficult to prepare the property for sale if itâ€™s not easily accessible. As with any house sale, itâ€™s important to get the property as presentable as possible (and ready for sale) before you engage a real estate agent.Â
Do you have close family or friends who can help oversee updates, repairs, and inspections? Everyoneâ€™s situation will be different, but, if possible, have someone you trust close by who can be present at appointments.
If you can travel to the house and dedicate a week or two of your time to get the property sale-ready, that would be extremely helpful.Â
This includes cosmetic improvements, tapware and appliance replacements, repainting, high-pressure washing and cleaning, roof repairs, floor coverings and lighting upgrades, and heating and air servicing. Put yourself in the buyerâ€™s shoes. What can you do to tell the story of your property?Â
As youâ€™re getting your house ready to go on the market, itâ€™s important to consider your equity, selling goals, next steps, and financial position.Â
With the pace of the market, get yourself emotionally and mentally prepared for the sale. Once you speak to real estate agents, itâ€™ll likely move fast.Â
