Selling your home can be a stressful time as you wait for the right buyer. There are some things you can do that will help your home sell faster so that you can be free to move to another area, expand or downsize.
If you are in a location where there are many homes available, it is a good idea to do what you can to make your home stand out from the others without spending a lot of money.
Improvements should be practical and generally appealing.
The first thing a potential buyer sees is the outside of your home. First impressions are lasting. Make sure your home looks great on the outside. A fresh coat of paint, manicured bushes/lawn and a clean driveway go a long way to make a good first impression.
Remove all clutter inside and out. Your home should be clean inside and out. This includes clean windows.
Remove your personal items such as pictures because potential buyers must be able to imagine themselves in your home.
Changing plumbing fixtures or knobs on cabinets are an inexpensive way to spruce up a kitchen. Also, old or non working appliances can be a problem for some buyers. Many buyers like to purchase a home that is move in ready so they do not have to do a lot of work or spend a lot of money to make it move in ready.
Make sure plumbing and electrical are code compliant and working properly.
If your home is unfurnished or has old worn out furniture, hire a company to stage your home. A Home Stager can really make a home look great which can impress a potential buyer.
Price your home to sell. Research selling prices of comparable homes in your area and price your home within range. Speak to a local real estate agent to help you find your best selling price.
If a home looks great and is priced right, there is a better chance of it selling faster in any market.
