Stage your Home for Better Sales
First impressions are key when it comes to selling real estate. You have one chance to make a good first impression. Our goal is to make sure that potential buyers get a great impression when they see your property. Check out a few of these professional tips:
Develop a plan:
Before you do anything, time to prepare so you can save time and energy later.
Bring a clipboard and pen and walk through each room in your home. Look at your house like a perspective buyer. Make notes of things that you want to change or fix.
Clean and sanitize
Pay Special attention to the kitchen and bathroom:
The kitchen and bathrooms are major selling points in a home. Make sure to take a little extra time in these areas.
Remember the other senses too:
Potential buyers will experience your home with more than just their eyeballs. Here are a few other ways to appeal to everyone:
The first thing potential buyers see is the outside of your home. You want to spend a little time here so buyers want to stop and look. Things you might do include:
Focus on sell-zones
Pay special attention to the features in your home that attract buyers including:
Make it look like a great deal!
Buyers do not want to pay more than a home is worth, but they are more likely to pay more for a property that offers more of what they want. Clearing out your belongings and staging a property for showing allows buyers to imagine themselves in your home. It can be hard for buyers to imagine themselves in the home if it still looks like your home.
If you can make sure most (preferably all) major repairs, and even some minor ones, are completed, buyers will have less to add to their list of negatives. Call us today so we can help you make a personalized list of things to tackle before you put your home on the market.
