A decision to sell your home means you most likely are entering a competitive market where there may be other properties like yours with similar traits. It is crucial to put the time and effort into making your property stand out from the competition. Here are a few tips that will help you in that endeavor and please reach out to The Linda Hall Team to discuss this further.
Start With The Little Things
Don't opt for significant renovations if you choose to sell your home. They can become a financial drain, and they may not add the value you might think. Instead, try to look into the little projects that can serve in making a great first impression.
We all have projects that we have overlooked, and they can accumulate over the years. Maybe you have stepped over the cracked tile in the kitchen so many times that you don't even notice it or the wobbly doorknob leading to your bedroom. These are examples of things you have meant to fix but didn't get the time to do so. Let's attend to those little things first.
Spring Cleaning in Summer!
Dirty homes are a considerable TURN OFF for buyers. When buyers first walk into your home, they see all areas of your home and a clean home will have a lasting impression because they will be able to envision themselves living there. A dirty house will most likely distract them and keep them from focusing on the main objective, and that is BUYING YOUR HOME if you can opt for a deep clean, if necessary. If you don't want a lowball offer, then going for a deep clean is a great option to make your property more appealing than your competitors.
No, we do not mean you have to pay someone to stage your home unless you want to. The Linda Hall Team can also give you advice on what you need to do to make your home most desirable to today's buyers. We know what they are looking for in their search for a home.
So you do not have to break the bank to make your house more appealing to buyers. Focusing on cleanliness, the small things and staging will go a long way in helping your home make a lasting impression with today's buyers.
