People sell their homes for different reasons. Whether you’re avoiding foreclosure, retiring or just plainly relocating for a new job opportunity it can be an overwhelming task. And so if you don’t know where to start in selling your home, this is an easy guide to help you do just that like a Pro.
Dress Up Your Home
Think of your home as anything you sell on Craigslist. You have to make sure it’s worth buying. Preparing it is the most important thing to do. Like with all things, you have to make sure it’s clean- so clean up, wash up and bring out all the clutter out of your house. Think of it as your final adieu to it so might as well give it the best effort you can give. The clean up of a home is essential and the best thing to do is to start with the inside and work your way out of its exteriors.
Clean: Wash all windows and other glass panes. Dust of dirt from carpets and wipe off grimes from all rooms.
Polish: Make sure everything is at its best look. Clean up all displays like vases, frames, etc.
Neutralize: Focus not only on the look but the smell of each room. Buyers will literally be nosey and check every part of the house as much as possible. Note that a clean home is a one that smells great.
Price Should Be Right
Everyone values his or her home more than the actual market price of it. Sure, this may be the home your kid grew up in and every nook and cranny has a memory. You have to be able to set sentimental feelings about your home aside. Learn not to ask for too much. You can price your home correctly by looking at the home prices in your neighborhood. Another important things is to get a professional opinion of a certified real estate agent. With these two, you will never go wrong. Most of the time, a lower than expected price can be a very good thing because it can start a bidding war which would then cause the home price to actually increase.
Go The Extra Mile
Hiring professionals like pre-sale inspector, home decorator and real estate agent may not be extremely common but this can help you make sure everything is at its tip-top shape and proper timing. Doing it on your own may save you money now, but in the long run, due to delays, late discoveries of house damages and such may cause you even more in the long run.
Market your home with all available media. Facebook, Craigslist and other social media platforms are growing trends in selling almost everything.
