Are you determined to up sticks and start afresh in a new location? If you want to embark on this new era in your life in the very near future, you’re going to need to go above and beyond in your attempt to push through your home sale. The estate agent can only do so much — if you want to sell your home in a quick and stress-free fashion, it’s down to you to make it happen.
From ‘staging’ it with potential buyers in mind to physically improving it, here are three things you can do to make your home sell faster:
Declutter your home
Once you know that a potential buyer is coming round to take a look at your humble abode, you should leave no stone unturned in your attempt to make the property look appealing to them. In the world of real estate, this is known as ‘staging.’
There are several things that you can do to ‘stage’ your home, one of the most straightforward and effective being to simply declutter the property. Clearing up the space in your home will help potential buyers to envisage their own belongings in it, which in turn will make them feel far more inclined to make an offer on it.
If your property doesn’t offer up a whole lot of storage space, fear not as there are still things that you can do to hide your worldly possessions. You could, for example, store your goods in safe and secure storage units. This is the perfect way to tidy up your home in preparation for a visit from a potential buyer, simply because it will allow you to declutter the space and retain possession of all the items that you hold most dear.
Give the place a fresh lick of paint
If your walls are starting to look a bit dated, a fresh lick of paint will be sure to work wonders. Trying to repaint your home’s interior (and maybe even its exterior) in a neutral color palette will make the property look newer, lighter, and a whole lot bigger. What’s more, it will provide potential buyers with an opportunity to envisage how they would adapt your home to suit their own design wants/needs.
Boost your curb appeal
If you want to capture both the attention and imagination of each potential buyer that visits your home, you need to go above and beyond to provide them with a first impression that they won’t forget in a hurry. Boosting your curb appeal is one of the best things that you can do to perform this all-important task.
Here are a few things that you can do to improve the aesthetic appeal of your home’s exterior:
- Make sure that your front door, windows, and roof appear to be in good condition
- Fill your outdoor space with greenery and make your lawn look appealing
- Embrace symmetry in your entryway
- Clean out your gutters
- Modernize your house numbers
- Hide electrical features
