7 Tips On How To Sell Property Fast

1. Get Your ARV Right

The After Repair Value or ARV is the most important number in house flipping. After repair value means the amount of money you will sell your property once you have finished doing all the repairs. In order for you to be able to calculate your ARV, you have to be able to apply the 70% rule. Here’s some more information on the 70% rule.

2. Get A Real Estate Broker

It’s important to get a real estate broker who has experience in your particular market because they will help you get a more accurate ARV. Make sure your real estate broker has realistic comps and is very familiar with your geographical area.
