Does an empty house sell faster?


All else equal, an empty house will sell faster because there will be no delays coordinating showings or waiting for sellers or tenants to move out of the property. A best practice is to install a lockbox to provide qualified buyers with convenient on-demand access to the property.


Did you know that when you use OfferMarket's commission-free Get Offers service to sell your house, you receive a lockbox, professional photography and 3D home tour for free?
