Thanks to a real estate market that has significantly improved over the recent years, selling a home fast in Las Vegas is a possible endeavor. It can be challenging, however, if your strategy is not aligned with your end goal.

From home prices to listing photos, here are four ways that will make sure you are on the right track to a fast home sale.

Make small but significant improvements

Let us take a trip back in time, when you were a home buyer. As you looked at homes, you might have appreciated that some small improvements were made to the house.

Now, as a seller, consider completing the same inexpensive but nonetheless important projects around the property. Home buyers will be drawn to your house and might even decide it is considerably more attractive than other homes being sold in the area.

Here are some of the things you can do that can positively impact the desirability and sale of your home:

  • Repaint the exterior and interior walls
  • Replace hardware (knobs, handles, faucets, sinks, etc.) in the kitchen and bathrooms
  • Fix and repaint kitchen cabinets
  • Deep-clean the house
  • Spruce up the yard

If you are willing to spend extra, updating the appliances in the kitchen can boost your home’s market value and help you sell it fast.

Compare home prices in your neighborhood

Finding the right price for your house is crucial if you want to sell it as fast as possible. A good way to determine this is to take a look at similar homes in the neighborhood that were recently or currently being sold. The houses you should be looking at must be comparable to yours in terms of lot size, square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and other features.

Do not wait for the “right” season

Unlike other real estate markets, it is perfectly doable to sell a home anytime in Las Vegas. Every season brings with it a set of advantages, so if you are trying to determine the “right” time, now is probably a good a time as any.

Instead of waiting for the best time, try to determine if the season plays well to your house’s strengths. For instance, properties with pools might do well to sell at the start of summer. If your target demographic is young families with school-age children, summer can also be a great season to sell your home. This market will try to move and get settled before school starts.

The holidays can also play to your advantage. There is a common misconception that it is almost impossible to sell your home around November and December. As a result, a lot of sellers take their properties off the market to let the holidays pass. This may be a good strategy in other parts of the country, but since Las Vegas only experiences mild winters, it does not necessarily apply here.

You can take advantage of the scarcity in the housing market during this period. Moreover, serious home buyers tend to start shopping for homes around the holidays.

Hire a professional photographer to take listing photos

Home staging pairs beautifully with professionally taken photographs of your house. With most home buyers starting their initial search online, great listing pictures will set your property apart from the rest of the competition. As that old adage goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

However beautiful the listing photos are, make sure they do showcase the property and its best features. If possible, accompany these photographs with short, well-written write-ups that tell a story about the spaces featured. These will help entice home buyers to contact your agent and schedule a viewing.
