GET READY to SELL!
Even with the record low inventory of homes available in our market today, home buyers still are very choosy. Everyone is carrying a smartphone in their pockets and searching daily for any new properties being marketed as “Coming Soon” or for sale in the MLS.
Buyers are looking for the best, and compare every home on the market easily. Any home for sale can be easily overlooked or forgotten if it’s not in the best presentable condition.
Below are common tips to consider when preparing for home buyers.
How to make the Outside of your Home Stand Out!
Improve your landscaping. Curb appeal is so very important to making a good first impression, so make sure your home’s front yard is perfect. Mow the lawn, prune the bushes, weed the garden and plant new flowers.
Clean the outside. A dirty exterior will make buyers think you’ve slacked off on interior maintenance as well. Be sure to clean the surrounding areas and pressure wash your home’s exterior so home buyers will want to come in and see the rest of your home.
Make the front door inviting. A fresh coat of paint, especially in a color that contrasts with the home, will make the front door stand out. Replace faded house numbers so buyers can see them from the curb.
How to attract the Highest Offers!
Remove clutter and depersonalize. Buyers want to envision their belongings in your home. Clean up by renting a storage unit for decorations, photos, extra furniture and other personal items.
Make every surface shine. From ceiling fans to floors and everything in between, clean your home until it sparkles.
Neutral colors. You might like bold colors, but potential buyers typically like cool neutral interior painted walls. Repainting your walls is a valuable and low-cost way to appeal to a wide range of buyers.
Organize closets and drawers. Disorganized closets give the appearance that your home doesn’t have enough storage space and may turn away buyers.
Eliminate bad odors. When selling your home, avoid filling the air with strong food smells. Hide the litter box and spray air neutralizer throughout your home and put out fresh flowers.
Increase your Home’s value with only necessary repairs!
In a buyer’s market, you want your home to be in the best condition possible. Take care of major defects like broken windows or a leaky roof that could disappoint buyers.
