1: Start with Curb Appeal
They say you never get a second chance at a first impression . So put yourself in the mind of the potential home buyer. What might they be thinking as they drives up to your home for the very first time?
2: Make Simple Upgrades
So, while it may be wise to make small upgradeslike replacing a sink here, a faucet there or updating an old water heaterdoing any major remodels may not be the best option. Spending $35,000 on your kitchen will not necessarily add $35,000 to your listing price. If you have a dated kitchen or bathroom, you may come out ahead of the game by discounting the asking price, so a buyer can choose their own finishes.
After you improve your curb appeal and made the necessary upgrades and repairs, it’s show time!
One of the best ways to get your home ready to show prospective buyers is to take the “you” out if it by taking down family photos,wacky art, personal collectibles, and “vibrant” paint colors. Remember, your chief aim is to create a soothing space that allows thepotential buyers to imagine their own family and lifestyle in the homenot yours.
4: Pricing is Everything
Choosing the right listing price is one of the most important tips for selling your home quickly. If your home is priced too low, you leave money on the table, and if it’s too high, you’ll get few offers and watch your home sit on the market.
5: Have Professional Photos Taken
Homebuyers typically start looking for a property online or in local home magazines. That means having great images that accentuate your home’s best features and selling points is a plus.
