Trying to sell your home? Take some advice from realtors and agents, who have expertise in this arena. There are many simple strategies that could result in more showings and, potentially, a buyer for your property.
Ten tips that can help sell your home are:
1.Always be ready. One suggestion from real estate agents is to be ready to show your home at any time. This means keeping it tidy and being open to last-minute showings.
2.Let your agent do their job. Listen to your agent. After all, you are paying them for their expertise so allow them to do their job!
3.Light things up. Maximize the light in your home to give potential buyers a good look at what you are offering, and to make the interior of your home seem larger and more open. Remove heavy window treatments and replace ambient bulbs to illuminate your spaces.
4.Move the clutter. Get rid of clutter and junk that could be preventing prospective buyers from seeing the potential of your property. De-clutter your home, which will also make it easier when you move later.
5.Add something unexpected. Give the buyer something extra, like your furniture or a car. Leaving something unexpected behind as part of the deal can pique prospective buyers' interest in your listing.
6.Stay neutral. Keep colors neutral in your home whenever possible. If you plan to freshen up the paint, go with basic white or off-white. Create a blank-slate as much as possible to appeal to the widest range of buyers.
7.Make a video. Film a video to put on social media, but be sure to let your agent know that you are doing this. Share on all platforms to generate some additional interest in your listing.
8.Stage your home. If you think your furniture could be improved, pay for staging services. This will optimize the space and give your home a polished, complete look for buyers.
9.Open-up your storage. Clear out closets and storage spaces so that potential buyers can see just how much storage is in your home.
10.Move your pets. Keep pets out of the home during showings and pick up food bowls and litter boxes before potential buyers come to see your house. Not everyone is an animal-lover and these people could be turned-off before fully-seeing your listing.
Take some tips from real estate experts; use some of these suggestions to show your home more often and possibly sell it quicker. Meet with your agent to discuss these strategies and to determine other ways to get your home sold, for the price you want.
