Import Home Selling Prep Tips This Fall
Preparing Your Home for Sale 2021
I have the top 4 Home Selling Tips for this fall. Even in a hot sellers’ market like today’s in which homes are selling so quickly. It’s still essential to make an excellent first impression on potential buyers. Taking the time up front to prep your house appropriately can bring in the greatest return on your investment. What buyers see online is your 1st showing, so these home selling tips will help you make more money in the sale of your home.
Here are four simple tips to make sure you maximize the sale of your house this fall.
1. Price It Right
One of the first things buyers will notice is the price of your house. That’s why it’s important to price it right. Your goal in pricing your home is to draw attention from competing buyers and let bidding wars push the final sales price up. Pricing your house too high, to begin with, could put you at a disadvantage by discouraging buyers from making an offer.
Your trusted real estate advisor can help you find the price for your home that reflects the current market value. Lean on your agent to help you with this crucial first step.
2. Keep It Clean
It may sound simple, but keeping your house clean is key to ensuring it gets the attention it deserves. As realtor.com says in the Home Selling Checklist:
“When selling your home, it’s important to keep everything tidy for buyers. . . . Remember to take special care with the bathroom, making sure the tile, counters, shower, and floors shine.”
Before each buyer visits, assess your space and determine what needs your attention. Wash the dishes, make the beds, and put away any toys. Doing these simple things can reduce any potential distractions for buyers.
3. Make It Easy To Visit
Allowing buyers to see your house on their schedule can be a true game-changer. Buyers are less likely to make an offer if it’s challenging to plan a tour or they can’t easily fit it into their schedule. Making your house available as often as possible helps create opportunities for more buyers to fall in love with your home.
Rest assured your trusted real estate advisor will keep your health and safety top of mind when buyers tour your home. Agents use the latest guidance to stay up to date on any protocols and sanitization recommendations.
4. Help Buyers Feel at Home
Finally, buyers need to see all the possible ways to make your house their next home. As the realtor.com article puts it:
“The goal is to create a blank canvas on which buyers can project their own visions of living there, and loving it.”
An easy first step to create this blank canvas is removing personal items – pictures, awards, and sentimental belongings – from your space. Not sure what you should pack away and what can stay, contact me to schedule an appointment so I can help. Spending the time on this step can pay off in the long run, as the 2021 Profile of Home Staging from the National Association of Realtors notes:
“Eighteen percent of sellers’ agents said home staging increased the dollar value of a residence between 6% and 10%.”
