You can order everything online now. What a time to be alive. You never have you leave your house for anything anymore. You can even buy a car online and have it delivered to your home. You can buy and sell a house online. How crazy is that? You can literally list your house to sell, get a buyer, and have it sold all online. Without ever talking to a person in person. If that sounds cool but a bit overwhelming, don’t worry. Let’s see how to sell a house online.
There’s an app for everything. Of course there’s an app for selling your home online. There are a ton of them. A favorite pastime is looking at houses we could never afford and looking at houses that aren’t that great and thinking “are they crazy asking for that”. It’s fun..
Okay, so selling your house on an app isn’t as stressful as it sounds. You enter all of your information, fill out the couple of forms, and you are good to go. You can list your house on as many apps as you want.
Everyone is browsing on their phones all day anyway. If you get your house on the apps you are guaranteed to get your house seen.
Hello social media. Let’s use you for good for once. Plaster that you are selling your house on all of your social media. Make sure your posts for that are shareable.
Social media is great because you can reach people that don’t know realtor apps exist yet. There are groups that you can join that are just for sharing homes for sale. Use social media for a positive reason.
Use a Realtor
These days you almost don’t need a realtor, but if using the apps and social media yourself sounds like way too much, then enlist the help of one. They can list everything online for you. They can add your house to their company’s website, the online apps, and any of their company’s social media.
Your fees and costs will be higher, but you won’t have to worry about remembering where all of your listings are and fielding all of the inquiry calls yourself.
Websites and Internet Buyers
If you don’t want to deal with realtors, fixing anything in your home, listing on a bunch of apps, paying any fees, or any other headaches, you can look at one of the websites that will buy your home as is.
Internet buyers will pay you cash for your home and you can close on your home super-fast. There are a handful of these websites if this is the way you want to go.
You have to beware though. You will most definitely not be getting market value for your home. You might even get a lower final offer than your initial offer once it’s been officially checked out. But if you need to move in a hurry and don’t care about what you get for your house because you just need it sold, then you should check this way out.
No matter how you decide to sell your house online, you need to be prepared. If you sell on apps yourself, be prepared for some extra grunt work. If you are using a realtor to sell online, be prepared for fees and costs you maybe didn’t plan for. If you are selling your house online as is, be prepared to get less money than your house is worth.
But if talking to a bunch of strangers or dealing with going to a realtor’s office all of the time doesn’t sit well with you, then selling your house online would be easier. Good luck and happy house hunting after you sell your home.
