Selling an unconventional house takes more than just announcing or advertising in the local dailies or erecting a ‘For Sale’ board. Several factors and considerations have to be made to ensure the house is sold at its value, or even more. One thing to remember when selling an unconventional house is that, it took lots of effort and creativity to build the house. Most conventional homes have everything one would need in a house. This includes spacious rooms, artistic décor, lush neighborhood and most importantly, features that come with the house. All these should pay off in compensation.
The first step to selling an unconventional house is by evaluating its market value. Everything in the house, including its size, décor and design should be included in your pricing mechanism. Alternatively, you can hire a property assessor to help calculate the house’s value. Any dentures or broken fixtures in the house may lower the house’s value, which is the reason why you should take on repairing it. Repainting and polishing everything in the house, as well as having the lawn nicely cut can help improve its market value as well.
Once this is done, set a competitive price for your house to sell it faster than what you’d expect. This should be the value you will be comfortable with. Unconventional houses are mostly priced higher than other houses, which is why you need to set the price a little higher (as per its market value) but not too high to put potential customers off. It is after you have determined how much you wish to sell the house, that you can take on marketing and advertisement of the same.
It’s advisable to identify promising channels that will help get to as many potential customers as you can. One way of doing this is by approaching a real estate agent who purposely major in selling houses alone. Many potential homebuyers look for the same in real estate websites and realtors, which mean chances of finding the highest bidder, are greatly improved. In addition to this, make sure whatever the broker will be charging you for directing customers to your side is favorable and not too high.
The internet is another great place to advertise and market your house. All you need to do is identify realtor web sites that offer this service to advertise with. The best way to attract buyers to check your house is by taking high definition photos of the house at all angles, and highlight features that come with the same. You should also consider uploading a video clip showing the way around the house. Videos are a great way of advertising houses especially for buyers who cannot make it to view the house. The best thing about videos is that, potential customers will be able to see almost everything in the house that the photos might have missed.
Using your social accounts to advertise your house can also help find a buyer online. All you need to do is advertise and publish photos of the same in your social accounts. Allowing friends and acquaintances to share this information can help fast track the selling process as well.
