If you are considering selling your home, you are likely to want it to sell quickly. There are things you can do to help this along. Here are six ideas.
Do Your Research
Get as much information on selling a house as you can, and make sure it is the latest info on selling a house. Know what has sold in your area. Look at the pictures these sellers included with their listing and note how they presented their homes for sale. You should also be able to see when the houses were listed and when they sold, as well as how much for. This will give you an idea of what the market is like.
De-clutter and De-personalise
The buyer will want to see how the space in your home can be used, so de-cluttering doesn’t mean removing all the furniture. You should, however, make sure the house looks tidy but lived in. But hide away as many of your personal items as you can to allow the buyer to easily imagine themselves living in your property.
Without spending a lot of money re-decorating, try to present your home in warm and neutral colours. Some buyers aren’t able to look past a bright wall or decorative wallpaper, and many buyers are looking to be able to move straight in without too much work to do.
Buyers want to know what space is available, so open up cupboards and wardrobes to show it off. If you need to store boxes of items from your de-cluttering, consider renting a storage space short-term rather than filling up your cupboards instead, as this can undo all the de-cluttering work you have already done.
Clear Up Toys
Show your buyers that even though you have children, who come with toys, your home can still look tidy as there is so much space to have everything tidied away. It is likely your buyers may have children too, so they will appreciate being shown this about the house.
Use Awkward Spaces
You may have a space under the stairs or an alcove somewhere in your home which might be considered awkward. Show how these spaces can be used to the buyer’s advantage – perhaps by installing shelves or showing a nice reading area. These areas can then be selling points which make stand your property out from others rather than being awkward.
