Best Tips to Help Sell Your House
It's important to make your house generic. A fresh coat of neutral paint will make your home appear larger, brighter and more appealing to potential buyers.
Things like leaky faucets, sticky cabinets, and torn screens may seem insignificant, but they add up in the mind of a potential buyer. Buyers tend to overestimate how much repairs cost. You don't want to give them any reason not to put in a fair offer.
Make sure your furniture placement allows for easy traffic flow and shows the purpose of each room. If you have too much furniture, store some until you are ready to move into your new place.
This includes personal photos and portraits. Less is always more. The less clutter you have lying around, the more potential buyers will be able to see your home and what it offers. Buyers are interested in the house, not your stuff.
Clean and Organize
When the house is organized it displays a stress free lifestyle.
Clean every inch of your house, and don't forget to make your windows and floors sparkle. If your carpet appears old and stained, think about replacing it. Also, make sure there are no offensive odors. Purchase an air-neutralizing spray that will help remove odors without creating an overwhelming masking odor. Clean organized homes sell!
Brighten it up
Let the sun shine in, and turn on the lights. Open all blinds or curtains, make sure the house is well lit.
Make it Comfortable
Be sure potential buyers are comfortable when touring your home. Keep the A.C. on if it's warm, and heat on if it's cold.
Keep it accessible and ready to show
It may be a little inconvenient, but until you accept an offer, keep your home accessible and in tip-top shape at all times. What this means is that each room should have a clear purpose, nice flow and be clean and clutter-free. Buyers need to be able to picture themselves and their things in the home.
