Devon Seaside Village To Be Sold For £10 Millionmore big
BANTHAM, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 13: A for sale sign is seen outside a house in the picturesque seaside village of Bantham on November 13, 2013 in Devon, England. Evans Estates, which has owned the land, buildings and popular surfing beach for nearly 100 years, have decided to sell next spring and Bantham, complete with sandy beach, pubs, thatched houses and a quayside, plus surrounding Devonshire land is expected to go for 10 million GBP alone. However residents of the family-owned village, which nestles in the South Hams and has parts in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, are concerned that the new owners may reverse the anti-commercialism ethos of the Evans Estate and that the natural and unspoilt spirit of the area could be in jeopardy.

Home selling is difficult, and the pressure builds up as your listing stays longer in the market. This is why you need to be resort to creative ways to sell your home quickly. Here are five "sneaky" approaches to sell your home ASAP, as indicated by Realty Times:

Get the help of your neighbors

This is why you need to be friendly with your neighbors. Neighbors you get along with will be more than willing to help you get your home off the market. They could prescribe your home to somebody they know that's looking to purchase a property. They can even do a sales pitch for you. You can offer an incentive for those who can bring you a buyer who closes. It'll be a win-win situation for both of you.

Crowdsource it

Advertising your home on the Web will essentially build the possibility of you finding a buyer. Trust us, informing a companion on Facebook is more compelling than sending them a text. Since everyone is always on their telephones, you literally put your ad at the tip of their fingertips.

Toss in the kitchen sink

Make your offer hard to refuse by giving incentives.

"Individual sellers should consider price and other incentives that could entice a buyer to take a look. You have to attract their attention somehow," said Bankrate. "You want to create the buzz."

It could be anything, from gas or movie coupons to one year free Homeowners Association fee.

Research on your buyers

You don't necessarily have to stalk them, but finding a few information about the potential buyers of your home may simply turn their "maybe" into a "yes" for your offer. Are they baseball fans? Leave those signed baseball memorabilia on display. Wine lovers? You don't have to arrange an entire wine collection in the home; however, setting up a couple of bottles on the countertop could help build up your connection with each other.
