Like a traditional home, a tiny home can end up sitting on the market for months and even years. This happens for a number of reasons many of which may be out of your control. However, while your home is on the market this may put a hold on your plans. It may also cause financial strain if you are paying for the upkeep of two homes. Therefore, when you decide to place your tiny home on the market, it is important that you make sure it will sell quickly. Finding the right formula to accomplish this can differ from location to location and home to home. Luckily, there are a few general tips to get your tiny home off the market quickly.
Include Add- Ins in the Buying Contract
Add-ins are typically used to get buyers to commit to a home purchase. They can include anything from paying for moving costs to including furniture in the sale of the home. In the case of your tiny home, you may need to consider paying a portion of the moving costs for your potential. If your buyer is located out of state, then you can offer to pay transport costs. This not only gets a number of buyers interested but will make them more likely to commit to the sale. Additional costs that are tagged on to the sale of the home can be a financial burden and begin to add up for a number of buyers. Easing this burden will help to get your home off the market much faster.
Consider working with a Real Estate Agent
Since a tiny home is a more unconventional home sale many sellers do not see the point in using a real estate agent. However, the value in a real estate agent lies in their network. They have the ability to speak to a network of real estate agent with potential buyers. One of these buyers may be interested in purchasing your tiny home. This much more difficult to achieve on your own. In order to ensure that you are not wasting your time, you should look for an agent that has some experience selling a tiny home. They will be able to get you a list of buyers who are actually interested in purchasing tiny homes.
When selling a tiny home you may come to find out that they are not immune to the same issues that plaque traditional homes. Therefore, use these tips to ensure you are able to move your home off the market quickly.
