With today's aggressive sellers' market, you're not the only person who is thinking about selling their home. With the current market as strong as it is, savvy homeowners shouldn't waste time in preparing their homes for sale. Listed below are a few simple things you can do to create interest in your home, attract more buyers, and sell it quickly.
Get Rid of the Clutter
Declutter closets and storage areas to make them appear larger. Sort through each room and decide what to keep, donate, sell, store, or discard.
A New Perspective
Give prospective buyers a sense of ownership. You can depersonalize your space by removing personal items, such as family photos and sports memorabilia.
Consider what little home repairs and improvements you can make that would significantly increase the sale price, such as freshening up the caulk or grout, replacing ceiling fans and light fixtures, or changing doorknobs and switchplates.
Putting in a little elbow grease now will reap rewards in the future. To show off a well-maintained home, perform thorough cleanings to include windows, ceiling fans, countertops, cabinets, appliances, carpets, and floors.
When it's time to sell, return to neutrals. Buyers may feel flat about a home accented with bold, bright colours or plain white builder-grade paint. Use neutral colours to bring people in and create a welcoming space.
Make a First Impression
Potential buyers form an impression of your home the moment they step foot inside, so make sure it's a good one. Curb appeal ideas include painting exteriors, pressure washing walkways and patios, cleaning gutters; trimming trees and shrubs; weeding and freshening mulch and adding flowering plants.
Add Some Scents
Air odours shouldn't be ignored. Smoke, pet odours, and musty fabrics inside a home can discourage buyers. Make your rooms smell fresh by steam cleaning sofas, cleaning window treatments, washing carpets and rugs, and using aroma dispensers.
Make more money when you sell by following these simple tips. All you need are a few quick fixes and some easy updates.
