Selling your home?
Here are 10 tips on how to make it sell — after all, impressions are everything and the main trick while showing your house is to highlight all the benefits while hiding away some of the potential blemishes. So, here goes:
Take care of the obvious major repairs
Roofing and floor are pricy repairs, but if you will not take care of them before selling, the value of your home will be significantly reduced. So, you might want to take a deep breath in case something is seriously wrong.
Repaint the walls to give the rooms a fresh look
Simply refreshing your walls with a new layer of paint will not take a lot of time and money, but the property will acquire a fresher, better maintained look.
Spruce up the entrance and/or driveway
Another thing to pay attention to is your entrance area — the first thing people see. Paint the front door anew, remove old bells, etc. In a house, get rid of the cracks (if any) in a driveway. A hallway is another area that is important to make a nice first impression.
Fix and improve your lighting
Replace all of the malfunctioning light bulbs, and make sure all of your functional areas — in the kitchen especially — are well lit.
Make the interior less personal
Before you open your house doors to prospective buyers, get rid of your family photos, or any other accessories that make it more personal. A nice idea for your own living room , this is not the best selling point in an open house.
Get rid of all the mess and clutter
Another thing that really makes your home less appealing is dirt, mess and clutter — so, tidy up or hire a cleaner if you do not have enough of your own time for cleaning.
Give a fresh spin to the bathroom
A new shower curtain is a very inexpensive addition that can really give your bathroom a fresh spin. And, of course, clean up the mirrors and other surfaces.
Replace worn off rugs
If there are any worn off rugs or drapes in the house — consider replacing them with the new ones. Once again, this cheap solution makes your home look much more appealing.
Open up your windows
When it comes to drapes, avoid heavy, bulky designs. It is so much better to open up your windows — this way, the home will look lighter and more spacious, which is a great selling point.
Place an emphasis on storage
If you have built-in storage or simply spacious wall cabinets — place an accent on them. Highlight the units and de-clutter them to show how much storage capacity your home has.
