WHY SPEND MORE?
Buyer's will judge a book by its cover. In today's day curb appeal is even more important than ever before. With people searching online with many options if your curb appeal isn't up to par you might not even get a showing inside.
This is by far the easiest (for most) thing you can do to make sure your home sells fast & for top dollar. Clutter makes it hard for the prospective buyer to "envision" themselves living there and can be a total turnoff. Make sure to take down most of your pictures and move furniture around to make the home feel open.
Adding to number 2 on the list. As a seller your goal is for the buyer to visualize themselves living there. Remove personal items and family photos, as well as abstract artwork that may only appeal to few. The goal is to get as close to a "blank canvas" as possible, so your buyers can paint their dreams into your home.
Neutral colors make your home attractive to all buyers. Yes, you may love your bright orange kitchen and we love it for you too! But a potential buyer might hate it and it could cost you a sale. Painting all rooms a neutral color not only keep your pool of buyers open to the max. It usually ensures I higher offer than not doing so.
It's time for buyers to walk through. They know someone is living there but it needs to be cleaner than it's ever been. Your home should be sparkly clean when buyers walk through. Stage your home lightly by placing things in spots that make it look open with plenty light. Make sure there aren't toys laying around and crumbs on the counter from breakfast. The faster you sell your home the less time you'll have to be so tedious.
It can be tempting to sell your home on your own in hopes to save some money. However, it has been documented over and over that FSBO sell their home and get less money than when they use an Agent. In fact according to Realtor.com homes sold by agents get an average of 23% more than FSBO sales.
Handling showings, negotiating sale prices, and concessions can be a real headache without proper guidance. Worst, it can cost you some serious cash.
