Getting your home ready to sell? Here are a few things you should consider.
Is it finally time to sell your home? If so, there may be a few things you’ll want to consider to help make your home a listing success on the housing market.
Here are a few quick and easy (and affordable) tips you can use to start getting attractive offers right away, so that you can sell your home for the price you really want.
Tip #1: Boost your curb appeal
First and foremost, start from the outside and work your way in. Make an effort to make the exterior of the home as presentable as possible.
Small improvements like power washing the exterior walls, planting a few colorful plants, or even changing the street number on your home can improve your home’s outer image.
Tip #2: Make a great first impression
You only get one chance to make an amazing first impression. It’s an old adage that’s true for meeting people and for meeting homes.
Make a great first impression by decluttering your home so that buyers have a chance to visualize themselves in the property. Be sure to declutter your home before every showing by throwing out what you don’t need and organizing the rest.
Keep counters clear, take down excessive decorations, and keep the floors free from toys and debris. Buyers can easily get overwhelmed by excessive décor and display, even if these items don’t seem that way to you.
Tip #3. Creating ambiance
When it comes to a listed home, less is definitely more. The more room you give your buyer to imagine—the higher the chance they’ll buy!
When it doubt, it’s always helpful to ask yourself: “What does my home look like to a complete stranger?” Chances are, they’re looking at the property through a completely different lens than you are.
Work on creating a mood for your showing that will put the buyers at ease. You can do this by playing relaxing music, opening the windows, and turning on all of the lights to highlight your home’s spaciousness.
For more tips, ask your agent, Hector, what you should or shouldn't focus on. He can help you focus on the right showing elements and help save you money.
