Selling your house is one of the most exciting things that you can do because of the simple fact that you’re moving on to your next property, and accomplishing your real estate goals.
In June 2022, the reality is that the current real estate market has changed as it’s gone from being a seller’s market, to a buyer’s market. This means that sellers must go a step further to get their properties ready for sale and ensure that they get the highest visibility possible.
If you’re planning on selling your house for the first time, this article will provide you with tips that you need to know to ensure that your house is going to stand out to buyers.
Tip #1 – Improve Curb Appeal
Improving curb appeal is essential when you’re selling your property because of the simple fact that it’s the first thing that buyers see when they drive up to your property, so you want to make sure that you’re doing everything to make that property stand out.
If it’s been a while since you’ve improved the curb appeal to your property, you should focus on renovating your lawn, removing dead or overgrown plants, planting flowers, shrubs, and planting colorful plants that add color to the landscape.
Besides improving the curb appeal to your home, you should also focus on power washing the exterior to your property as well. This means power washing the driveway, sidewalk, mailbox, and the front of your house if it’s currently caked with dirt, dust, and grime.
Tip #2 – Repaint
Another important thing that you can do to get your home ready for sale is to repaint it inside and out.
Painting is important because a fresh coat of paint can do wonders at making a home look like it’s been well cared for and maintained.
If you’re not sure what colors you should choose for your home, take a tour of your neighborhood, and focus on the top colors that your neighbors have been painting their homes in recent years.
The goal should be to choose a paint color that compliments other homes within the neighborhood, versus choosing a color that makes your home stand out like a sore thumb.
Tip #3 – Declutter & Stage
Inside your home, the number one thing that you should focus on is decluttering. This is essential because, it’s a proven fact that have too many items often make the rooms look/feel smaller than they really are.
Rent a storage unit nearby then spend the weekend going through each room and removing all non-essential items. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to significantly reduce the clutter in your home and use what furniture was left over to stage each room.
Staging your property to get it ready for sale is also important because your goal should get people to envision themselves living there.
