There’s a time to buy and a time to sell… houses that is! If you’re looking to sell your home soon, here are a few things to consider prior to placing the for-sale sign in your yard.
Having a good agent to help you through the selling process is a must when it comes to listing your home. You’ll want someone to help you list your house for the right price, negotiate well, and get it sold quickly! If you need a trusted agent, reach out to your InterLinc Loan Originator for a reference.
If your budget allows, making small upgrades to your home could really help it sell quickly. Things like changing out light fixtures, re-painting walls to a neutral tone, or replacing old carpet are sure to be noticed by prospective buyers.
After living in a home for any amount of time, there are bound to be a few things that need fixing! Have a jiggly doorknob that you never got around to repairing? Would your brick benefit from a quick pressure wash? If you have small projects to do that could potentially raise the appeal of your home, refurbishing before listing is an excellent way to ramp up that “wow factor”.
Typically when people have guests at their home, they tidy up a little beforehand. The same applies to showing your home. If you know you have a showing coming up, try and declutter your home so it’s clean and attractive when prospective buyers are viewing. If you want to take staging to the next level, removing some very personal items from the house considerably helps buyers picture their things and themselves inside the home.
We’re led by our senses, so what better way to create an inviting atmosphere in your home than by baking before a showing? Pop some cookies in the oven and prospective buyers are sure to take notice!
