Today's discriminating home buyer starts their search online. The most important thing a Real Estate Professional can do for you is help you prepare your home to be seen and liked online, which will result in a personal visit to the property solidifying the buyers expectations, and if possible adding a wow factor that goes above and beyond their online experience. Home staging is one of the most powerful ways to make buyers want to buy your home. Let's take a look at some ways you can increase your chances of selling your home.
Replace any damaged blinds or window treatments, including screens.
Have the house professionally cleaned.
If needed, paint the home in neutral colors.
Clean the front door area, as this is the first impression the buyer will have of the home.
Remove any unpleasant odors
Pressure wash the home.
Trim all shrubs and replace all pine straw or mulch.
Caulk all visible areas that need caulking.
Paint where needed.
Have your HV/AC Inspected and serviced
Clean your gutters.
Place a new welcome mat at the door. Make it a welcome clean, well maintained entrance.
Removing the Objections
Perhaps one of the biggest obstacles of selling your home is the state of repairs. Most buyers will hire a professional home inspector to have the property inspected and this will hold up the close of your sale if unexpected major repairs are needed. To avoit this road block, I reccomend having your property pre-inspected by a professional Home Inspector.
