Although selling your home may sound easy, selling your home for top dollar will take some work. The good news is that it is worth it. You can sell you home for 18% more by using these 6 tips.
Curb appeal matters. You want a buyer to be intrigued by a nice exterior for them to want to know more about the interior. Plant flowers, mow the lawn, clean up around the edges, repaint the front door, etc.
Declutter and depersonalize your home. Storing personal items such as photos graphs and artwork will help buyers visualize themselves living in the space. Clutter on your counter tops and walls takes away from that. Show off your home, not your belongings. This can also help in the moving process by starting to store your moving items. You don’t want a buyer to feel as if they are in someone else’s home, you want them to feel like they are walking into their new home. Not many people want to see that giant moose head hanging on your wall. Items such as these, on the inside and the outside, make your home feel significantly smaller.
Repair broken items and freshen up. Paint rooms to be a neutral color. Fix the obvious things around your home. Squeaky doors, leaky faucets, etc. If you notice it, the buyer definitely will too.
Don’t get too emotionally involved. It helps to remember that the home really isn’t yours anymore when you are trying to sell it.
Don’t be greedy. Buyers aren’t fooled by high prices, they simply wont respond to high prices. Your home will sit on the market and you’ll end up with less money than if you had priced your home right to begin with.
Hire an agent with a solid marketing plan. Marketing your home well will bring in a lot of demand and high demand means a good price for your home.
A clean home. This tip alone is the most important. Your home needs to sparkle. Cleaning can really make a buyer pay extra for your home, so the elbow grease is worth it in the end.
Following these simple tips truly will make your home sell better. Not only can I help you individually with these tips specific to your home, I can put your home in front of thousands of eager buyers. Don't hesitate to reach out to me!
