Do To Sell Your Home Fast
by Sameer S Panjwani
You want to sell your home and you want to sell it fast. It may
be a sellers market and every other home in your neighbourhood
is selling and you think its going to be a cakewalk selling
your home. You put your house up for sale, people come, a few offers
pour in, negotiations take place and then something happens that
the deal falls through. This happens more than not when it comes
to selling homes. The critical stage is when someones given
you an offer and when the negotiation starts. First thing, when
you get an offer, which in your opinion is ridiculously low dont
just reject it outright. In most cases, the buyers just testing
the waters to see the best he can get. Always give a counter-offer
however disparate your figure may be with the buyers offer.

fall through. There are many ways in which you can close the deal
fast and ensure that both you and the buyer are satisfied. What
you can do is negotiate with some other items. Here below are a
- Include a few items or appliances along with the price like your
alarm system, dishwasher, dressing table, etc. This may also be
a way to rid yourself of the items you were in any case not intent
on using for yourself.
- Offer a decorating allowance. This may be particularly applicable
if the buyer likes everything but the way youve done up your
- Offer pre-sale inspection and home warranty. A comprehensive home
inspection combined with a home warranty reassures buyers that the
property is in good condition and that certain repairs will be covered
- Offer a lease option where the buyer may rent the property with
an option to buy later on. A percentage of the rent may be set aside
as the buyers down payment.
- Offer to pay for some of the closing costs such as the prepaid
interest charges or the first years property taxes.
Feel free to be a little innovative with your negotiation and you
may just find yourself with a deal faster than you thought.
