Home Improvement Tips To Sell Your Home Fast
Home Improvement Tips For A Fast Sell
By Jordyn Rickard
With the housing market in its current state, you may have had your home on the market for a substantial amount of time. Each potential buyer that views your house has different expectations, but there are of course some standards across the board that will help put your home a step above all the rest.
You can’t judge a book by its cover. The same applies with the outside or design of a home. But having a snazzy cover or well maintained yard and home will certainly draw a buyer in, curious to see more. Consider hiring a landscaper to do a deep cleaning before you put your house on the market. They will trim and shape the hedges, rake out leaves and can suggest plants and flowers that will thrive in your yard. Once they leave, it will be easy for you to maintain the professional look of your yard.
Once your potential buyers are in the door, it’s time to set the scene. If possible, try to minimize personalizations to a few select pieces. Family photos are great for visitors and friends, but it’s important that a buyer can envision this as their home with their family pictures on the wall. Another easy tip that can take you far is decluttering. Surfaces should be clean and open. Many cleaning services offer a one time rate or special for homeowners selling their home. If you are still living in the home while showing it, some realtors swear that if you bake a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies, it increases a buyer’s potential. If not, maybe utilize a few air fresheners in a generally accepted subtle scent like vanilla or clean linen.
Each house has its own personal highlights and features that are like no other home. Do your best to make those areas something your buyer will remember when comparing your home to the other homes they’ve viewed. Some examples of unique features may be how grand your entranceway is or your custom designed walk in closet with a significant amount of storage space. Your realtor will know what makes your house special and will certainly inform any prospects.
