Selling a house is an art. There are too many people who mistakenly think that they will just clean up their house, put it up for sale, and then "boom!" it sells. There are very few houses that actually get that kind of response. Most commonly, people have to put a lot of work into marketing their home, changing the way that it looks, and making it up more appealing to get it to sell faster. Here are some things you will need to do to your house that you may not have thought of.
1. Decorate Your Porch
One thing that many people fail to think about is the first impression with the porch. Lots of people know that they need to clean up the yard, but the porch is also very important. You should clean up the porch so that it is free of debris and any kind of discoloration. Then you should add decorations. Make sure there is a wreath on the door, add some seasonal décor if needed, and make sure that there isn't wasted space. If you have a bid open area, add a chair or something. You don't have to buy something, either borrow from a friend or a neighbor, or talk to your realtor. That is one of the main perks of using a realtor, they can bring in décor and furniture if needed.
2. Think About How You Are Using Spare Rooms.
If you have a big house that you aren't filling up, so you have spare rooms for storage, you need to get the storage taken out into a storage unit, or even the basement before you show the house. Spare rooms should be dressed up to utilize the space. If you have 3 bedrooms just full of boxes it will be far less appealing than if you had 3 bedrooms emptied out. Empty is better than storage, but ideally you would have a small bed, or even a desk to show it's multi purpose use.
3. Get Rid of Toys and Pets
Now is not the time to advertise that you have a lot of children or pets. Make sure that all of the toys, and clutter from children is out of the way. This includes high chairs. This goes for pets even more. There are a lot of people who have no desire to live in a house that has been occupied by animals. All signs of animals should be removed.
By doing these things you can increase the chances of selling your house.Share
