No matter the market, selling your house will be easier and you’ll typically get a higher asking price if you follow a few best practices.
One of the first places to start is clearing out your overflowing attic or basement.
You can eliminate the overwhelm of house clean outs by getting a professional eye to help you sort through your possessions and decide what to keep, donate or sell. Some people have discovered “junk” that turned out to be valuable antiques. Look for a professional skilled in the resale business to help you.
Once you’ve dealt with the overflowing attic, basement or barn, you can turn your attention to the main portion of the house and get it “buyer ready”.
Here are 5 More Tips on How to Sell Your House:
1 – Make it look inviting Curb appeal is your home’s first impression. If the paint is peeling and your yard is overgrown, you’re putting yourself at a disadvantage right out of the gate. You want to entice your potential buyers so trim hedges, plant flowers and clean the gutters.
2 – Clear clutter Once your prospects are inside, you want them to imagine themselves living there. If you have piles of papers and family photos covering every surface, it’s going to be more difficult for them. Make it easy by storing away family pictures and momentos from vacations.
You may see comfort and familiarity but your prospects need to see some blank space to imagine themselves there.
3 – Stage it Set up a furniture grouping on the patio or create a cozy reading nook in the living room.
Your prospects want to fantasize about entertaining and relaxing in their new home. Make it easy for them to envision themselves there.
An interior redesigner can be an invaluable resource in re arranging your existing furnishings and decorative items to make them look wonderful and inviting to your prospects. In just a few hours, a redesigner can give your house a makeover that shows your home to its best advantage by highlighting best features and minimizing lackluster ones.
4 – Get your windows cleaned Pollen and dirt cloud your windows which blocks some of the sunlight. Let light come streaming into your home by getting a window washer service to make them sparkle. In the same vein, if you have chandeliers, get those cleaned too. They’ll reflect the light far better if they’re recently cleaned.
5 – Take care of your “punch list” Need deck repairs? Creaky doors that don’t close quite right? All the little “quirks” of your home that you’ve been living with can put off potential buyers because they’re not as familiar with your home as you are so it’s harder for them to overlook these details. A handyman can take care of these concerns so you can focus on other things-like choosing your next home.
