Looking to sell your home? If so here are a few tips that can help you make the right impression on buyers and sell your home faster.
Set the Right Asking Price
It is important to know what your home is worth. Do some research and see what comparable homes in your area are selling for. You don’t want to be underpriced in your market but you also don’t want to ask too much for your home forcing it to sit on the market.
Enhance Your Curb Appeal
One of the most important things you can do to sell your home is enhance the curb appeal. This is super important because the outside of your home sets a buyers expectations for the home. And of course you want the expectations to be high. A few curb appeal items include:
- Mow the lawn and plant flowers
- Replace an old front door
- Update the mailbox
- Wash the front windows and clean out the gutters
- Power wash the siding and porch
Complete all Unfinished Projects
The last thing that buyers want to do is finish your unfinished projects. This might be as complicated as adding new flooring to a bathroom or replacing a broken fixture in the kitchen. Either way it has to be done before you place your house on the market.
Declutter and Clean
Make sure to keep your house clean and free of junk. Putting your house on the market is the perfect time to get rid of items that make rooms look smaller and cluttered. And don’t forget about the kids toys. When people our house hunting you want them to see your home, not your stuff.
Stage Rooms to Show Functionality
Make sure when buyers enter your home they know the purpose for each room. Turn a catch all room into an office or a spare bedroom. Anything you can to define the space and increase the square footage of living space.
