Having a hard time selling your home, and can’t figure out why? Selling can be frustrating but don’t give up! You will eventually find the right buyer with these tips.
Sell in spring
SPRING – when flowers bloom, the sun shines, and people enjoy the outdoors. Your property looks more attractive in spring; the garden blooms, natural light flows into the house, and with better weather more buyers visit homes open for inspection.
Boost curb appeal
First impressions last; and they’re the only impression for buyers. The exterior of your home plays a big role in this business, so it’s important to think like a buyer: walk around the outside of your home and take notes on what needs to be improved.
Power wash the exterior, have some shrubs and brightly coloured flowers, make your garden look appealing – it’s vital that potential buyers feel warm and welcomed as soon as they step into your property.
Personal touches (e.g., family photos, religious pieces) make your home less appealing. Remove the things that make it look like someone else’s home and let prospective buyers feel that your property is ready to be owned by them. Let them visualise their personal touches in those spaces.
Say NO to bad odour
A smelly property is an automatic turn off. To prevent this, have your carpet cleaned, get rid of worn-out furniture, clear drains, wash bins, and make sure there’s good ventilation. You can also brew some coffee and have its aroma lure potential buyers.
Light it up
Maximise lighting; take down the drapes, clean the windows, and make sure that your home gets as much natural light as possible. Adding a skylight and mirrors will make your property look luxurious. Your home must look bright, spacious, and airy to be sellable.
Note: lighting is often used in entrances, living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, and family rooms to create a mood and to focus attention on architectural features.
Renovating is a must for profit
Make both your exterior and interior appealing and impress potential buyers by renovating your property! Renovating also means boosting the selling price.
