Thinking of Selling Your Home?
If you’re thinking of selling your home soon, you may be feeling overwhelmed by all that is involved. From hiring the right realtor to choosing which repairs to make to increase the value of your home, there are several ways you can make the process easier. Avoid common mistakes and learn more about getting your house ready to sell with the tips below.
Getting Your House Ready to Sell
To begin getting your house ready to sell, the first thing you’ll want to do is get rid of the clutter. If you don’t need it or love it, get rid of it. If you can store it somewhere else until you move, do it. Keep only the minimum amount of furniture and decor in the house when potential buyers come for a walk-through.
Next, you’ll want to hire a real estate agent. They will be able to answer any questions you may have about any part of the process, including which repairs and updates will give you the best return on investment.
After speaking with your realtor and going over your budget, it’s time to choose which projects to take on. Consider which items will make the biggest impact and add curb appeal. Remember, the outside is just as important as the inside, if not more so. If buyers don’t like the way the outside of the home looks when they arrive, they may not even go in.
Finally, if you can, hire a professional to stage your home for you. They will be able to add the right finishing touches and advise you on how to create the best first impression.
Tips on How to Sell Your House Faster
If you want to sell your home faster and get top dollar for it (let’s face it, who doesn’t?), use the tips below to highlight your home’s best features and appeal to buyers.
Research your local housing market and compare sale prices of similar homes to get an idea of how much to ask for your home.
Deep clean and declutter. (People are going to open closets and cupboards!)
Remove anything personal, such as photos. The buyer should be able to picture themselves living there, not you.
Hire a handyman to fix quirks. A crooked cupboard door or a dripping faucet may have become familiar to you but won’t be attractive to buyers.
Add more light. Open or remove curtains and switch to daylight LED light bulbs.
Paint the walls and touch up cabinets, doors, and trim.
Plant flowers, mow the lawn, and trim trees and shrubs.
Hire a professional to take the photos you will use to sell your home.
