There are many reasons why you would want to sell your home, from moving to a different state or upgrading to a larger home to accommodate your growing family. Whatever reason you may have for wanting to sell your home, you undoubtedly want to sell it as quickly as you possibly can for as much money as you can. Although this is often easier said than done, there are a few steps you can take to improve your chances of selling your home quickly and for more.
One of the best ways to improve your chances of selling your home is to spruce the place up a bit. You’d be surprised what a fresh coat of paint or proof that you recently had a brand new energy-efficient HVAC system installed can do to attract potential buyers.
If you aren’t so keen on spending too much money prior to the sale, there are still a variety of steps you can take. These steps include:
Removing Personal Items
Prospective buyers want to be able to imagine themselves living in the homes they view—and it can be pretty difficult to do that if you still have a huge family portrait in the living room. Family photos, knick-knacks, souvenirs, and the like should be put away if a buyer is scheduled to look at your home.
Showing Off Storage Spaces
Storage space is always a premium in homes, so if you know your home boasts more than enough storage space, you may want to flaunt it to prospective buyers. Remove excess clothes and belongings from closets and keep the doors open. This will give buyers a good view of how much storage space they have to work with when they move in.
Cleaning Up Outside
Curb appeal is incredibly important when it comes to selling a home. In fact, many people simply drive by a listing and make a decision based on your home’s curb appeal.
If it’s spring or summer, colourful and vibrant plants placed near the front door can provide massive curb appeal. This is especially true if the area of your front door is mostly neutral colours. Additionally, be sure to clear your front yard of any fallen leaves or snow.
