Are you trying to sell a house in Lancaster, PA Fast?
You may have heard recently that it’s a Sellers Market in Central PA. Well you heard right….in some cases. Houses in great school districts that are totally turnkey are selling like hotcakes. However, we’re still seeing some houses that aren’t in the hot school districts sitting a bit longer. Not to mention if there are fixes that need to be made to the property.
Most people buying homes to live in as their primary residence HATE having to repair homes after they buy them! Often times they don’t have the money necessary to pay for additional fixes after they just spent a good bit of their savings buying the home. They want no repairs, no hassles, and no surprises once they buy.

What are some tips to Sell Your Lancaster House Fast?
1) Get Experienced, Professional help.
Not all real estate agents, lenders, contractors, and home buyers are created equal. Many real estate agents aren’t even full time. That’s like asking someone who occasionally fixes their own car to get yours ready for a cross country trip! You wouldn’t do it.
Hire professionals with proven experience to do the job right. Ask for referrals and make sure that you know what questions to ask. Even though we purchase properties for cash, we also know some of the best real estate agents in Central PA. Even if you’re not interested in selling us your house, give us a call we’d be happy to refer you to some of the professionals in the area that we know, trust, and recommend to our friends and family.
2) Make the fixes and improvements that are needed.
Don’t skimp. As we mentioned earlier, buyers don’t want to deal with unfixed problems after they purchased the home. Buyers also want to see the the home has been cared for, and no quicker way to throw up red flags for prospective buyers than to have visible existing issues.
3) Go NEUTRAL
You may have loved that wallpaper or the seafoam paint in the bathroom, but there’s a good chance that other prospective buyers are going to hate it! Remember, this isn’t about you. This is about what the masses want. Neutral colors like tans or grays never go out of style, so those should be a given. We like Agreeable Gray and Canvas Tan from Sherwin Williams. It’s hard to go wrong with those colors.
4) Price the property right.
It’s so important to price the property correctly out of the gate. This is where a professional can be crucial part of your success. If a property is overpriced, it will sit on the market and get stale. This is one of the worst things that can happen to your listing! If you’d like a recommendation on which agents we think are the best in the area, give us a call at 717-715-0010 and we’d be happy to help!
5) Make your home available for showings.
So many people forget that selling your home often involves a number of showings to find the right buyer. Many sellers would rather not be inconvenienced and turn down showings! This could be your buyer who will give you a full price offer on your home, but unless you make the house available and make sure it’s in great showing condition it likely won’t happen.
Don’t want a ton of people walking through your house and cleaning up every day there’s another showing? Get in contact with us today to make sure you understand all your options or call 717-715-0010
