15 Jun Tips For Selling A Home
You’re ready to build a custom home that fits your lifestyle and personal decor style, but before you can make your dream a reality, you need to sell your current home. With so many variables like neighborhood, market, price, floorplan, and more that go into selling a home, getting started can be difficult. Because the custom home builders at Michael and Associates want to help turn your custom home ideas into reality, we’ve compiled a list of tips for selling a home. Check out the tips below and get to selling!
1. Empty out your closets to show off the home’s storage opportunities.
What’s one thing homebuyers all agree on? Storage is crucial for a home. To help showcase your home’s storage options and opportunity, take out half of the stuff in your closets. It doesn’t matter if it’s your bedroom closet or the closet under the stairs. If there’s less stuff, the closet will appear to have more room than it actually does.
2. Let the light in to make the home brighter and more open.
Aside from location, light is one of the top things buyers look for when purchasing a home. If you have great natural light, enhance it by trimming trees and bushes to let in even more. Another great thing to do is clean the windows. Taking down drapes, increasing light bulb wattage, and changing lamp shades will also increase a home’s brightness.
3. Keep home improvements to a minimum so you don’t overspend.
Before selling a home, spending some time and money to make quick and minor improvements is always a good idea. Things like repainting a room, swapping out door knobs, upgrading locks, and replacing windows can help your home sell faster. Adding on an entire room right before you sell? Not so much. Keep your improvements simple, so you don’t end up losing money.
4. Remove your personal touches so the potential buyers can envision their lives in your house.
You want your house to feel like a home, except for when you’re trying to sell it. Family photos, memorabilia, and personal keepsakes make it difficult for potential buyers to see themselves living in your house. You want a potential buyer to walk in and immediately start thinking about how they’d arrange the furniture, where they’d put their photos, and what decor they would add. If your personal stuff is taking over the house, then it’ll be more difficult for them to do that.
5. Hire a staging company to help arrange the rooms.
Want to maximize the full potential of your home for potential buyers to see? Hire a staging company. A staging company will come in and help you get your home in top shape. From arranging furniture to adding little touches like updated decor and plants, a stager will show you the best way to set up your home to sell.
