Sell Your House When Relocating in Seattle: How to Find Potential Buyers

First, before you can proceed with selling your Seattle home, you have to find potential buyers. It’s important to present your home to your best audience, so you will need to know how to connect to the people who will be the most interested in buying your home. Listed below are some of the ways to connect to potential home buyers:

  1. Look at the real estate ads.  If you want to find the most eager buyers, look in the real estate ads.  In the real estate section, you are likely to find a number of potential buyers and it’s where people take out ads on how to sell your house to buy another one. One way to do this is to look at the home listings. You can see if you can get the details for those selling the house. Those people selling their house, could be in the market for another house, in your area. 
  2. Check the classifieds.  In the classified section, some people who are looking to buy, may list their ads there. These ads usually start with the term, “Wanted” which would be succeeded by the kind of house they are looking for. Once you find someone looking for a home like yours, you can contact them to see if you can work out a deal.
  3. Check social media and real estate sites.  Social media has become a mecca for sharing deals and ideas for shopping, from cosmetic bags to houses. You may be able to tap into your market by posting a photo of your house on social media and seeing if you get any bites.

How to Show Your House to Potential Buyers

Make sure your house looks its best before you invite any potential buyers to view your house in Seattle. Here are some ways to  make sure you show your house in the best possible way to encourage the sale of your property:

  1. Clean up, do some vacuuming and dusting, make sure everything Is nice and clean before inviting people to view your house, this way you can present your home in the best possible shape.
  2. Detach from “stuff” that will define your home as yours. Remove all personal items like family photographs.
  3. Try to avoid any distracting clutter that will draw the visitors eye from the main focus, the main focus being the room. Make sure to clear any of those distracting items away when cleaning the house.

Don’t Assume It’s a Done Deal

Sometimes you may jump to the conclusion that you are closing the deal but in reality, until the person signs a contract or hands you a check, the deal is never really closed. Never assume that you are closing the deal. Being presumptuous that you have persuaded the potential buyer to purchase your property, may make you appear desperate or it will negate the deal.

Answer Prospective Buyer’s Objections

One mistake that sales people often make, is failing to answer objections to the customer’s satisfaction. Answer only the questions they ask, unless you think you may be getting close to closing, then by all means, ask if they have any other questions.  Then answer honestly and to the best of your ability.
