If your home is not selling as fast as you think it should, then consider these 5 tips to help your home sell faster. Keep in mind that you should prepare your home to be sold with the same attention that you would prepare yourself for that all important job interview. The principle is the same; you want to attract the attention of buyers. A few simple projects can make the difference in how your home sells and even how much it sells for.
You may find that many of your possessions remind you of enjoyable times and successes in life. You may enjoy all of the over-stuffed furniture. However, all of these make your home look cluttered, too small and unattractive to buyers. Remove any indications of political party affiliations and signs of other organizations that may be objectionable to some buyers. Although your religious beliefs are important to you, a home that is filled with religious articles is not going to be attractive. Put items in drawers or closets rather than leave them scattered about. You can rent a storage locker to store excess furniture as well as boxed items. Now, you can imagine that buyers will visualize a home that they could live in.
2. Make What You Have Look Better
A few simple fixes can give your home a more modern feel. Upgraded fixtures will be attractive to buyers even if they might not like the fixture you choose. You can upgrade items without replacing them. For example, light fixtures can be painted a pewter color and doorknobs can be decorated with appliques. Replacing faucets is always a good idea, but if you can’t afford to do this, then clean them thoroughly and use a product that will make them shine. The concept at work here is to help buyers realize that they will not have to spend a lot of money immediately to make the home attractive.
3. Make Sure The Rooms Are Neat And Clean
Children’s bedrooms should reflect how the rooms can look when everything is in its place and the beds are made. Clothes should not be scattered over the floor. The colors in the rooms should be neutral if possible. Make the closets look better by not stuffing clothes into them. Clean carpet and clean tile are essential for attracting the buyers’ interest.
4. Change Colors That Over-Stimulate
Neutral colors attract buyers, and the bright red, purple and yellow colors are a turn-off for buyers. Area rugs should be designs that are attractive and in colors that compliment the rooms.
5. Curb Appeal Is Important
Your home’s curb appeal will be the buyers first visual image of your home, and it will create their impression of the inside of your home. A yard full of weeds or a flower bed with overgrown plants will deter buyers. Grass that is not cut and trimmed properly is not attractive.
