Asking yourself "how do I sell my property?" when you have an investment property just sitting there? Here's how.

You have property that's burning a figurative hole in your pocket, and you're ready to do something with it. Whether it's an old vacation home you rarely visit or a house that you haven't lived in for years, you're reading for an answer to the age old question of how do I sell my property.

Answer the Sell My Property Question

Selling a house could easily get you six figures. As long as you follow the right technique, you'll know how to move your property and do it fast.

What does it take to truly sell a property? How do you get eager buyers that want to get in touch with you?

You may have questions, but luckily we have answers. If you want to learn how to sell your property, here's what you need to do.

Up Curb Appeal

If you were a stranger driving around the neighborhood your property is in, what would catch your eye? The house at the beginning of the block has a beautiful fountain in their front lawn and your neighbor's newest stone walkway turns heads. But what about your house would make someone stop and say "wow"?

Curb appeal is an important part of the home selling process, and if you don't have it selling could be tough. Luckily for you, there are simple ways to improve curb appeal.

A new coat of paint for the house or a re-seeded lawn could do a lot to improve curb appeal. As long as your house looks good from the outside, you'll have people that want to see the inside.

Target the Right Buyers

You have a beautiful small home that's located in a small town. It would be perfect for a single man or woman that wanted to have a place of their own, so why is your realtor aggressively targeting growing families of four?

If you ask yourself why can't I sell my property, it may be because you're looking for the wrong buyers. Take time to truly think about your home and who would be happiest living in it, then you can better target your buyers. 

If you have a big house that can fit half a dozen people, think about posting your listing in local social groups for big families. If you have a house that costs a few hundred thousand, don't look for people that can barely afford 6 figures.

De-Personalize the Space

Home tours are done for two main reasons. You want potential buyers to see the space, and you also want them to be able to see themselves happily living in your home.

It's going to be hard to envision your next house if it doesn't truly feel like it could be your home. Family pictures, remnants of pets, and other decor elements can make it hard for people to see your house as somewhere they can live.

Before you do your next walkthrough, remove any decor elements that make the house feel more like "your" home. Family pictures, personal touches, and even pet toys and beds should be out of sight.
