Below are some tips for getting top dollar for your home.
If priced too high then less offers, not many showings, limits buyers, and delays a sale.
Buyers are turned off by any odor or dirt, so make sure the home is squeky clean.
>Clutter eats equity. Reducing clutter makes the home look larger and prospective buyers are better able to visualize their personal items within it.
A few hours notice should be sufficient.
Preparing For Showings
If you are at home before a showing, turn all lights on, open drapes, light candles or spray air freshener, and leave the house taking pets and children with you.
The front of the home is the first impression as well as the default image for all advertising. It is very important to have bushes trimmed, grass mowed, and walkways swept. If a buyer doesn’t like the front of the home, they may decide not to even go in.
Paint & Carpet
Paint is the best improvement because it makes the home smell clean and looks great. If your carpet is worn down, an unusual color, or has stains then its time to change it. Many homes down sell for this reason alone. If there are any other noticable defects have them fixed before listing the home so buyers will feel the home is well kept.
