Looking to sell your home quickly? Want to get the inside scoop so you can unload your current home and move into a new one? We can help.
To help you get started, here are some easy tips to sell your home quickly.
Some areas of your home just can’t be decluttered. Maybe you’re moving into a bigger house so you don’t want to get rid of your clutter or your hobbies take up a lot of space. You may need your clutter, but the truth is, clutter looks messy.
If you don’t want to get rid of your clutter (although you should consider it), then you should invest in a storage unit to hold your extra belongings. This gets them out of the way so homebuyers can easily tour your home.
This also gives you a jumpstart on packing. You won’t need to repack these items later, so that’ll be a little less for you to do later.
The best stages highlight the strengths of the home while downplaying some of its flaws. If you’re not staging your home, then potential homebuyers might not be too impressed when they walk in.
Work with a professional stager to decide how to best showcase your home. Take plenty of pictures and use them in your online listing.
After the online listing is up, make sure you’re sharing it on social media and ask your friends to share it. Your friends may not want your home, but their friends might.
Leaving a home can be an emotional process. Sellers tend to highlight the wrong parts of their homes, such as their photo displays and their favorite college teams to show off their personalities.
Potential homebuyers don’t care about this.
Buyers want to see if your living room has enough space and if your kitchen is upgraded or not. Less is more with buyers.
Revamping your whole kitchen might not pay for itself after all. Unless your kitchen hasn’t been updated since the 1950s, look for smaller, less expensive updates for your home. Change your shower curtain and touch up the paint in the bathroom. Install a new kitchen sink and update the light fixtures in the kitchen.
These are small fixes, but they can transform your home and make it look almost new.
If potential homebuyers can’t see in your home, then how will they be able to see what makes it so great?
To help sell your home quickly, you can brighten up your home with both natural and artificial light. During day showings, leave your curtains up and let the sunlight come in. In the evenings, put in the highest wattage bulbs for your fixtures.
Don’t forget, a fresh coat of paint can also brighten up an otherwise dull room.
Even if you’re not a gardener, you should take the time to improve your yard. You don’t have to invest in a whole landscaping project. Mow the lawn, trim your trees and bushes and do a little weeding. These little changes will make a big impression on buyers.
Just because you think your home is worth a certain price doesn’t mean it actually is. Look at all the comps in your area and compare your home closely. If those homes have major upgrades, then you won’t be able to price your home quite as high.
Be honest with yourself. You’ll sell your home much faster if you list at a more reasonable price.
