In a perfect situation, you sell your house the very first day that you place your house on the market. Reality is that it can take several weeks, in some cases months, to find the right buyer. Economic measures, the age and condition of your house,the asking price and location are factors that impact how long it takes your house to sell.

Focus on marketing to shorten the time it takes to sell your house

For example, owing a house in an area that is not only thriving but continuing to expand,could shorten the time it takes to sell your house at the right price. The way that you market your house has a significant impact on how long it takes your house to sell. When marketing your house, keep an open mind.

Stay open to adding websites and social media among your better house marketing options. Places where you can market your house online include:

  • Video hosting sites like YouTube and Vimeo (Share stories of special times that you shared in the house to help potential buyers connect emotionally to the house that you are selling.)
  • Add your house to real estate listings (Include pictures and short videos of your home with the listings. Also, include specific details like the flooring type, square footage of each room and window types.)
  • Create attention grabbing write-ups in your house for sale listings. (Consider hiring an experienced real estate writer to create listing content for you if writing is not your strong suit.)
  • Build land pages to accompany your websites.
  • Blog to pull in relevant traffic. Highlight rare, valuable houses. It's a great way to show home buyers how skilled you are at finding a diamond in the rough.
  • Take potential home buyers on a neighborhood tour. Let them see what they will gain if they buy a house in the neighborhood.

Better house marketing options that work well with offline effort

Although there are several places and ways to market your house online, to get the most from your marketing plan, showcase your house offline as well. Here are some better house marketing options that you can conduct offline:

  • Take out an ads in local newspapers, magazines and home directories.
  • Host open houses. If you get on a schedule and host open houses on the same day and time each week, you could pull in more traffic, as people come to expect the open houses to take place.
  • Post "house for sale" signs at major intersections near your house.
  • Mail postcards to leads.
  • Hold garage sales and let attendees know that you are selling your house.
  • Work with experienced realtors to spread the word about the house that you're placing on the market.

Technology is creating better house marketing options for realtors and homeowners. Yet, to get the most out of real estate marketing, you would do well to include traditional house marketing methods in your overall marketing plan. This includes letting relatives, friends and colleagues know that your house is for sale. Definitely don't stop at sticking a "house for sale" sign in your front yard.

2. You can capitalize on various tax benefits.

Believe it or not, buying a house may enable you to reap myriad tax benefits.

3. You can pay predictable housing costs for a set period of time.

With a fixed-rate mortgage in hand, you can pay the same amount each month for the duration of your mortgage. This means you won't have to worry about fluctuating housing costs; instead, you'll pay the same total each month without exception.

Of course, homebuyers who choose an adjustable-rate mortgage can enjoy fixed housing costs for a set amount of time too. On the other hand, those who select an adjustable-rate mortgage likely will need to plan ahead for a potential increase in mortgage costs after three, five, seven or 10 years.

Furthermore, a real estate agent will negotiate with home sellers on your behalf, guaranteeing that you can get the best price on any house.

Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent is available to respond to any homebuying concerns or queries. This means you can get the expert insights that you need to make informed decisions at each stage of the homebuying journey.
