Tiny houses have exploded in popularity in recent years, and many people have opted for simpler living arrangements and the opportunity to use more of their disposable income on travel, hobbies, and more. If you've owned a tiny house but are getting ready to sell it, you want to ensure that it gets top dollar. Cleverly marketing your real estate listing on social media and other platforms can help attract people who might be interested in purchasing your tiny house, but they'll need to be impressed when they arrive to check it out. Here are some steps for preparing this small dwelling for sale.
Have It On A Trailer
Some tiny house owners keep their dwellings on trailers permanently, but this isn't always the case. If your residence is sitting on a slab, it's a good idea to hire a crane and load the building onto a trailer. You can still continue to live in the tiny house in the meantime, but being on a trailer will immediately make the dwelling more enticing to prospective buyers. The average buyer knows that moving the house can be expensive, but much of the expense — namely, the crane rental — is already dealt with if you take care of this job.
Remove Most Of Your Possessions
Decluttering is always important before selling any home, but it's arguably one of the most critical tasks to perform before you try to sell a tiny house. Space is at a premium, which means that your possessions can quickly make the already-small space feel cramped. Remove the items that you don't need in the immediate future. Generally, you should be able to store them in the trunk of your vehicle or even at a family member's house to help give your tiny house a larger feel.
Provide A Handout The Details Your Features
Much of the enticing nature of tiny houses is how efficient they are at using space. This means that there may be hidden compartments, special cabinets, and other storage solutions that can initially get overlooked. You don't want people evaluating the tiny house when they visit and missing these features — which may be possible. It's worthwhile to work with your real estate agent to provide a handout that contains a photo, location, and description of each of the valuable features of the house. Once you've completed these steps, you're ready to move forward with listing this and other properties for sale.
