Tips for selling your home Selling a home can be stressful. Here are some tips to help your house faster.
1. Find the right Real Estate Agent Find a Real Estate Agent you can trust, and know that they will work for you. Make sure your house has proper photos Your buyer’s first impression will be the listing photos, and studies show that homes with more than six listing photos online are twice as likely to be viewed by buyers. Cleanliness is necessary on every home, no matter how beautiful it is.”
2. Promote your house yourself Don’t leave all the marketing up to your agent. Do your part to get the word out about your home by using your personal social media accounts and sending the listing page to family and friends. You never know what friend of a friend or distant relative may be looking in your neck of the woods! You may even consider spreading the word about your home in your neighborhood. Send the listing to your homeowners’ association email list and let your neighbors help.
3. Remove personalized items for your house Removing personal photographs or memorabilia will allow the prospective buyer to imagine themselves living in your house and make it easier to focus on the home’s highlighted features.
4. Make small upgrades to your house Don’t go overboard on major remodels. A new sink and cabinet hardware in the kitchen, or light fixtures, shower curtains, and hand towels in the bathroom, are inexpensive but can instantly transform your space. Small upgrades can have a big impact.
5. Brighten up your house A dark or poorly lit home feels damp and depressing. Brighten it up by using natural and artificial light. “Get the highest wattage light bulbs for that light fixture, and it will instantly brighten up the room,”
6. Curb appeal Your home’s exterior is typically the first thing a buyer sees in person and on listing sites. If it doesn’t look good, a buyer won’t even consider looking at the interior shots.
7. Get ready to hand over the keys Spring and summer are known as the best, most optimal times to sell your home. Once your house has a buyer and all of the appropriate documents have been signed. Get ready to hand the keys over, and get ready for your new adventure.
