Selling your house can be a stressful time; showing people around your property and trying to make it as desirable as possible can take time. Even with your best efforts, you might still struggle to get the offer you want.
However, there are a few tricks that you can do to try and encourage more enthusiasm about your home to prospective buyers. By just doing a few small things can make a big difference to both the interest and the selling price.
One of the first things you need to be doing is getting rid of any excessive stuff in your home. When potential buyers come to see your house, they are looking to see how much space the house has. If there are too many things on the floor or covering the walls, they might not get the sense of space that’s there.
Don’t be tempted to put it all in the garage, in case they want to look in there as well. Try to place it in storage, or at a friend’s garage until you have made the sale. However, keep family pictures where they are as this will give buyers a sense of home.
Painting is a good idea if you have personalized your walls with murals or bright colors. It might look great and be your favorite color, but it might not be what they like. As a buyer, they want to be able to move in and not have to do too much straight away.
Try to paint the walls a neutral color; this will brighten up the area and create the illusion of more space. Also, go to any places that have been scratched or have excessive marks on the wall.
To get that sale may require a few little DIY jobs to be done around the house. If you have a broken light fitting or cracked tiles, try to replace them. If you have torn or bare carpets, try to cover the areas with furniture or rugs if you don’t want to replace it. Also, the beauty of the roof is highly crucial. Seek good roofing companies to fix any damages for safety and beautification.
The more little things that are fixed, the more your buyers will like it. They don’t want to be doing these types of minor repair straight away.
How are You Selling?
With all these little things done, you should also consider how you have your home on the market. If you are only using one real estate agent, then try to engage another to sell as well. They may get different clients to the first one and therefore attract different buyers.
You can also try companies like Mrs. Property Solutions who can evaluate your home and offer a price straight away. It can negate the need for viewings and wait for offers.
When you are trying to sell your home, you need to think about all the ways potential buyers will think and try to make your house as sellable as you possibly can.
