If you’ve relocated to Hawaii on short notice for a new job or family reasons, selling your previous home can be stressful and time-consuming. Luckily, the moving service experts at Oahu’s WestPac International have over 25 years experience helping people with both international and local moves, and they’re more than happy to lend customers some helpful selling advice.
Here are four pro tips for selling a home when you’ve already moved:
Keep Up Appearances: A good-looking home is sure to attract more attention, so keeping the lawn, driveway and home interior maintained is crucial to draw buyers. If you have a realtor, they can help you find local contractors to mow the lawn and blow leaves, or even do minor repairs after you’ve moved.
Make it Feel Like a Home: If you had a moving service pack up all your furniture, hiring a realtor or staging company to put in temporary couches, tables and decorations can not only help sell the home quickly but can also help you get the price you want. If you didn’t take the furniture, you’re already in good shape!
Advertise: If you haven’t partnered with a realtor, using simple online marketplaces like Zillow, Trulia or even Craigslist will help to draw more potential buyers and are easy and free to set up. Plus, you can pay to advertise on the site, which puts your home front and center when people search in your area.
Use Social Media: Everybody knows someone looking for a home, so it’s likely that at least one old friend from the neighborhood has a friend or family member that might be interested in your home. Post pictures on your Facebook page daily and ask your friends to share them with anybody local looking for a new home.
