Accurate pricing is key to get as many people as possible to tour and make offers on your home, especially when you first list your home. There’s a current pool of buyers waiting for new listings to hit the market, which is why accurate pricing and staging your home properly is crucial.
Tips to getting your home ready to sell!! Very Important!
CLEANING IS EVERYTHING! Cleanliness signals to a buyer that the home has been well cared for and is most likely in good repair. A messy or dirty home will cause a prospective buyers to notice every flaw.
FIX ANYTHING THAT IS BROKEN This includes plumbing, electrical systems, switches, windows, screens, doors, and fences. If it cannot be fixed, replace it or get rid of it.
PAINT There's nothing that improves the value of a home for a lower cost than a fresh coat of paint. And it's so often easier to paint a room than it is to scrub it. Stick with neutral colors, off white is the safest. Be sure to avoid black, violet, and pink.
UNCLUTTER YOUR HOME BEFORE YOU SHOW IT Have a garage sale, give it away, call 1800 got junk, put it into storage, get rid of it! Empty closets. Throw away what you can't sell. The less stuff in and around a home the roomier it will seem. Less is MORE!! A buyer will make a much lower offer if your house is in disrepair and will probably still insist that everything be fixed before taking occupancy. You're better off if you leave potential buyers no reason offer less than you are asking.
PET SMELLS! Get rid of them and if you can't have them professionally cleaned. Nothing turns off a buyer more than smells. Disturbing orders make them wonder what else is wrong. Smoke, cigarettes, water, moisture, sewer, ALL DEAL KILLERS!
LET THE LIGHT AND FRESH AIR IN Rasise the shades. Open the blinds. Pull back the curtains. Put brighter bulbs all the rooms. Use a air freshener that you can plug in and has the same smell on each floor of the home. Basement, 1st floor and second. etc.
