If you are ready to sell your home, it�s not uncommon to run into a few roadblocks in the process. From decor to location to your inner hoarder taking full reign, the possible problems you could run into are endless and unique to each property. In severe cases, it is hardest to sell homes that have been condemned and could be posing a health hazard. After all, you don�t want to call this place home anymore – so how are you going to convince someone else that they should? Let�s review possible problems and solutions to avoid driving buyers away.
Your Home is Outdated
Yes, there was a time where pastel and floral wallpaper and trim was a hot and desirable trend in kitchens and bathrooms. Not so much anymore. There�s a reason why newer homes have almost completely done away with this once popular home decorating feature, and that is because most buyers consider is tacky and outdated. Wood paneling can also turn potential buyers away. When selling your home, it is also suggested that you do away with any bold paint colors and stick to neutral. While bold paint colors and accent walls are actually making a comeback in popularity, your buyer will likely want to choose their own bold colors and paint placement specific to their current style and furniture (which probably won�t match up with yours). You should also do away with fixtures that implement fluorescent lighting, and replace any laminate countertops that are in poor shape.
Your Home is Dirty
Nothing quite riles certain people up like coming home to a dirty house. If your house is pretty dirty, you�ve likely learned to live with it and are probably past the point of noticing just how much cleaning needs to be done. This could be as serious as stained carpets and moldy, soap scummed showers or as minimal as a pile of dirty shoes in the foyer. When you want to sell your home, it should be as clean as you are capable of making it without investing in unnecessary repairs and replacements. If your inner hoarder has left you with a �junk room� or something similar, where you have accumulated an unhealthy amount of old clothes or unopened boxes from years past – it�s time to let it go (keep/toss/donate). Clean your house! The presence of junk, dirt and strong odors (pets/cigarettes) is the easiest way to turn potential buyers away.
You Still Owe Money on Your Home
One of the most common reasons for selling your home is because you are ready to move on and want to turn a profit. This can be troubling if you have experienced a financial hardship and are drowning in late mortgage payments. If this is the case, you�ll have to choose an alternative selling method to a standard sale. If you have filed for bankruptcy, are facing foreclosure, or are considering a short sale to sell your home – it will be more difficult to sell, but not impossible. These alternative sale methods require negotiation and patience, consider getting professional help.
