Homes aren’t like people–it is perfectly acceptable in this market to walk away from a listing because you don’t like the way it’s presented. In such a competitive world, it can be hard to stand out and make a lasting impression on those who look at your listing. You’re looking for ways to sell your home quickly and for what it’s worth, right? Well, read on to find out what you can do to make a good first impression on those buyers.
- Consider the surrounding homes.
You need to match up to your neighbors, and then blow them away, especially if you aren’t the only one on the block trying to sell. Look at how they keep their lawns, how they present their home from the curb, and then amplify that. Keep your lawn manicured and healthy, and make sure you keep your home looking attractive and inviting.
- Keep pets away during open houses.
A lot of people have allergies and strong preferences, and while your pet may be the nicest on the planet, it could still end up harming the opinions of potential buyers. Find a friend to care for your pets when you’re allowing tours. If you have fish, keeping those may help. A well-kept aquarium with attractive, healthy fish can add to the display of a room. But other aquatic animals, like snakes or turtles, might be a mistake.
- Get your carpets clean.
Don’t just run over your carpets with a vacuum or a rented cleaner–invest in hiring a professional to work on your carpets. Your buyers want to know that they’ll be purchasing your home without needing to do this work themselves. It also makes a huge visual difference. Cut lines and clean, plush fibers are what people want to see.
- Check your outlets and switches.
Flip switches. Test outlets. When you live in your home long enough, it’s easy to forget about which of these don’t work. Electrical issues are huge hassles new buyers don’t want to go through, so get these fixed before you show off your home.
