Tips and Tricks to Sell Your House Faster
Take the time to clean out closets and other spaces where stuff tends to accumulate. By clearing out items it can make your home appear larger and allows the buyer to envision the property as their own.
Cleaning up overgrown weeds and bushes or getting the carpets professionally cleaned can make your home show 100% better. By having the interior and exterior clean, this allows the prospective buyer to focus on positives of the home rather than the negatives. A clean house will always sell faster and for more money than a dirty house.
Is your front door dirty or need painted? Is your porch full of leaves? Curb appeal is very important in getting prospective buyers to even step foot in the door and also gives them the first impression of your home. With minimal effort you can receive maximal return by having a warm inviting curb appeal.
Pack away all your family photos and memorabilia. Buyers need to be able to visualize your house and their home. By having many personal items out, it can be difficult for them to see past those and look at the house as their future home. Think of it as a kick-start on the packing process!
We all love our pets but not everyone is comfortable with pets that aren’t their own. Make sure you have a plan of what you will do with your pets during showings and also be aware of any pet odors or stains in your home.
Stage both inside and outside for showings. Create a comfy look in the living room, a warm inviting table setting in the dining room, or even a relaxing hammock in the backyard. By staging your home you are able to focus in on the home strengths and draw prospective buyers in on those points.
