Below you'll find our answers to the most frequently asked questions about selling your home. Here are the top frequently asked questions that home sellers ask before listing a home for sale. If you have more questions, please reach out here.

How fast are houses selling?

The average time to sell a house can take up to 70 days (30 days to get an offer and 30 days to close). Other factors that can affect the timeline include the time of the year, the housing market, and the condition of the property. An agency listing strategy and the buyer's financing situation can affect the timeline.

When is a good time to sell a house?

The best time to sell a house in Las Vegas is during the spring season. Some analysts suggest that the first half of May is the peak time. Most homes sell $2400 more on top of the asking price.

If you want your home to sell fast, you should price it right, highlight the key amenities, and stage the house. If you want to sell at the top dollar, you should consider your specific market, make repairs, and find a reputable real estate agent.

How long do most houses take to sell?

The average time most houses take to sell is 55-70 days. It could take 25 to 30 days and an additional 45 days before closing. The amount of time will depend on demand, season, and local market conditions.

How long does it take from offer to completion?

On average, it takes 7 weeks from an offer to closing a sale. Once you get an offer, the real work starts. To avoid unnecessary slipups, you should work with an agent. If you don't secure an offer within this period, the property could be overpriced.

To ensure there's no chain break, you should set accurate pricing and choose a reputable real estate agency.

How can I sell faster?

The easiest way to sell a house fast is to get the price right. However, some factors cannot simply be changed.

One thing you'll hear all the time is the location. If your home is in a desirable neighborhood, you're probably in luck. But there are other market forces - the buyer's and seller's market.

In a scenario like financial trouble, divorce, or a new job, you may be wondering; how do I sell my home fast? To unlock the keys to a quick sale, you must weigh your selling options. For instance, you can skip straight to getting a cash offer.

Other things include cleaning, decluttering, making quick repairs, and improving curb appeal. You can also stage the home to stroke the buyer's imagination.

Other than that, you should market your home to major homesites and leverage social media. Other concessions like paying a percentage of closing costs can only sweeten the deal.

Do houses sell better empty or staged?

The short answer is yes, empty houses do take longer to sell than homes that are furnished or staged.

A study from the Appraisal Institute found that vacant properties sold for 6% less and took an average of 30 days more time on the market than occupied ones.

Does staging my home really make a difference?

Yes. Once a potential buyer comes to your home, they envision living there. If there are too many distracting items, that can be a turn-off. Since staging is a way of making your home look presentable, a real estate agent can offer recommendations for the best staging company.

The cost of staging a home will depend on several factors like the size of the home, where you live, and the extent of staging.

According to homeowners, you should expect to pay $630 to $2,300. The national average on the cost of staging is $ 1420.

If you're thinking of having your home staged, you should get a consultation first. A professional can perform a walkthrough of your home to understand the local market. Another thing that will bring a difference in your home is deep cleaning. You may want to focus on one or two key rooms.

Is it better to fix up a house or sell it as is?

A home in a seller's market can usually get away with fewer fix-ups before it is sold, but even homes that need repairs will still deliver lower prices.

In slow markets, buyers might not bother to look at homes that require work--so if you're looking for instant cash flow and don't care about the long-term prospects of your property as much as its short-term value then this could be an option worth considering!
