Home Selling Tips
Price Your Property Appropriately:
Over-pricing a property is probably the number one reason that a property doesn’t sell. Even reducing the price later may not increase buyer enthusiasm. In fact, it will have the opposite effect. Allow a professional to assist you with the valuation of your property.
Make sure your yard, sidewalks, and driveway are neat and clean. Remove anything that may seem unappealing to the prosective buyer. Make sure all pathways are free of obstruction. A fresh coat of paint is a relatively inexpensive way to revive appearances. In addition, you may want to have the exterior pressure-cleaned to remove any dirt or appearance of mildew. The installation of flowering plants or other small shrubbery can enhance the curb appeal.
Keep your home neat, clean, and ready to show at all times. Remove all “clutter” from around the house, and espeically in the bathrooms and bedrooms. Inspect your home for small defects such as cracks, peeling paint or wallpaper, and water damage. Again, a fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into a dull appearance. Be sure to clean up after pets religiously.
Help Your Realtor:
Provide your Realtor with a list of all extras and selling points of your home. Try to be absent during any showings. Your presence often makes the buyer uncomfortable and could prevent the buyer from focusing on your property. Before your Realtor shows your property, make sure all lights are on and your home is clean and presentable.
You may even want to make some snacks. The scent of fresh-baked cookies or homemade bread can make your home feel more like their home.
