How to Sell Your House in 5 Days (in 2020)
There’s a book titled “How to Sell Your Home in 5 Days”. It’s available on Amazon Canada, but even if was accessible via Prime (it’s not) we suggest that you don’t waste your time. Think about it – if you order it now you will have already lost two precious days waiting to receive it in your mail box. Then you’ve got to read the darn thing, and at a paperback total of 309 pages we’re pretty sure you won’t have finished it by the end of the week. By then you’ve missed your window. Plus, let’s not forget the fact that it was written back in 2007 – along with a bunch of other online articles purporting to give you the same advice. Things have changed since then folks. It’s a good thing that you’ve found this article instead.
5 Honest Steps to Selling Your Winnipeg Home for Fair Market Value Within 5 Days or Less
1. Skip the Realtor / Agent Route
You’ll waste too much time connecting to a Realtor or Agent. They are busy servicing a bunch of other sellers and buyers, and unless your home is considered a very hot commodity (new construction in a highly favorable community) they won’t put you on their priority list. Just getting your listing up on their MLS feed alone can take a week. A five day turnaround with a Realtor/agent is a pipe dream, and that’s just one of the reasons (click here to view them all) to avoid using them to sell your home when timing is everything.
2. Forget Selling on Your Own
Selling the house FSBO (for sale by owner) or by brining it to auction is just as time consuming or more. Under the FSBO option you have to manage your own listing (classifieds, etc.), meet with buyers, manage negotiations, and take care of all of the paperwork on your own. What about auctions? Unless there is one coming up in the next five days you’re out of luck. If there is an auction tomorrow, most allow buyers to place conditions on the bid with financing and/or inspection clauses delaying the process further. Selling on your own does not result in a five day sale.
3. Abandon Hopes of Renovation/Repair
Other articles on how to sell your home in five days tell you to invest in some quick renovations and repairs to fix “surface” issues that may keep buyers from making an offer. When was the last time you saw a renovation/repair for a house actually completed within the estimated time frame? It simply doesn’t happen, especially when you are working with a tight budget. The only way most professionals will follow through on a promise to complete the work within a day or two, is when you pay a premium. Most property owners who are in a position that demands they sell a home fast are not willing or able to invest more into the home. If you truly need to sell the property in five days, you simply cannot wait for renovations and repairs to be completed.
