When you’re selling your home, the steps you take to get your property ready for buyers can mean the difference between a quick and profitable sale and your home sitting on the market for months. And often, the best steps you can take to sell your home are the steps that other sellers overlook.
According to a recent article from Realtor.com, there are a few often-overlooked steps you can take to help sell your home faster and for a higher profit, including:
Make the right use of your rooms. You might be using rooms in your house for a variety of things (like a bedroom as a playroom or a den as a storage area), but staging each room to reflect its original purpose can help buyers see the full potential of your home.
Add a fresh coat of paint. . If you have a dated bathroom with oddly colored tiles, reglazing to a more neutral color can make it feel more modern—and can up the appeal for buyers. Don’t forget about the mailbox! Would-be buyers will see your mailbox before they even enter your home—so making sure the mailbox looks amazing is a must if you want to make a great first impression.
List all your house extras. If you’ve lived in your home for awhile, it can be easy to grow accustomed to your property’s amenities. But those amenities (for example, an automatic garage door timer or security system) can make a real impact on buyers—so make sure you list any and all bells and whistles that come standard with your home.
While these details are certainly worth considering, remember, each house, market, and homeowner situation is different. If you are considering selling in the near future, please feel free to reach out directly with any questions you may have.
