Finding the right buyer for your Long Island NY home can be a lot of work and can be a very lengthy and stressful process. There can be a lot of uncertainty in what your house will actually sell for, especially in 2019 as the market begins to slow down. There are a lot of variables to consider when listing the traditional way. In our post, we will help you compare your selling options, helping you to find the right buyer for your Long Island house. 

Your Options

The condition, location, urgency, and type of home will all come in to play when you are deciding on the most beneficial way to sell your house. For some people, listing their house with a Long Island real estate agent can make sense. While for others, the wasted time, uncertainty and money simply aren’t worth it. When selling your Long Island house, you can choose to hire a real estate agent to try to sell on your own (also know as a FSBO), or opt for a fast and hassle free direct sale to a local cash buyer. If your house needs a lot of work, if you don’t have the time to wait, or if you’d rather not gamble on the sale, selling your home directly could be the way to go. Before committing to a selling method, consider what is most important for you and your family. Ask yourself a few questions. Is the house in great shape and in a desirable neighborhood in a good real estate market? Is it likely to sell quickly?
If this is the case, it might make sense to list the home with a realtor and try and get the most amount of money for the house. On the other hand, is the house in disrepair and in need of renovations? Are you in need of money from a quick cash sale? Do you want a hassle free sale where you don’t have to work on fixing up the house or cleaning it out? Then you might want to sell the home to a direct cash home buyer.

Things To Do If You List

The preparation for a successful listing can require a lot of work and preparation before the house is listed on MLSLI. You may need or want to make some repairs that negatively impact the value of your home. You should look at other comparable houses listed in your neighborhood and examine what you can do to make your house stand out. This might require some upgrades or the addition of some additional features the house didn’t have before. Take a look at the people buying in the area, and plan accordingly. If there are a lot of families currently buying, you could fence in the backyard. Or if there are more singles, and young couples, you could focus on the entertaining areas such as the kitchen and backyard. No matter who you are marketing to, it is best to have the house professionally cleaned before having photos taken or showings scheduled. Many people opt to put a majority of their items in storage while the house is on the market. You can also enlist the help of a professional home stager to help you make the house look as if it came out of the pages of a magazine. Doing all of this will require an investment up front, but it can all pay off in the long term if you find the right buyer for your Long Island house.
