If you’re thinking of selling your home there’s never been a better time. But it’s important to act fast as economists expect a recession to the housing market in the next couple of years.
First impressions matter. With a little bit of planning and help you can make the house buying process easy and appealing to your potential buyers.
1. Check The Lights
Take a walk around your home and replace any burnt out light bulbs as a start. But you may want to go one step further.
Why not replace all your lamps and fixtures with the highest wattage bulb you can find? That way your home will seem more bright and appealing to potential buyers.
You can also check your outdoor lights. When potential buyers are cruising for properties lights can help your curb appeal.
2. Curb Appeal Counts
Take a peek at your property from the road first. It is important to use a fresh set of eyes.
Everything from a new mailbox to a trim of the front shrubs may increase the curb appeal of your home. The more buyers who walk in, the better chance you have of a big sale.
3. Look Down
When is the last time you had your carpets professionally cleaned? It’s important to make every inch of the floor look great.
4. Perform Small Fixes
Many home sellers are hesitant to roll up their sleeves and fix the issues with their property. They may worry that once they get started there will be no end to the list of tasks.
But rather than doing a full remodel of your property, focus on the small items that need to be repaired. You can either self-perform these tasks or hire a handyman.
Those little issues carry a big message. Get them fixed and your property will be more appealing.
5. Leaks and Seals
Any types of leaks or broken seals should be a priority. Buyers will walk away if they see too many issues with your home at the start.
In their eyes, there will be even more wrong with the home down the line. Make those repairs right away.
6. Say Goodbye To The Memories
While the good years of your home will always be with you the time is now to sever ties. This means replacing those personal touches with items that allow buyers to see themselves in your home.
Removing your personal touches and decluttering the home will make buyers notice.
7. Get Help And Land The Right Home Buyers
