Moving on can be a hard decision to make. You’ll have home memories to cherish forever and leaving the home can be tough. But, there will be more memories to make and moving home can be a really exciting time in anyone’s life. However, to avert the disaster of not being able to sell your current home, you need to make sure it looks good and has all of the trimmings in place. There is an art to selling a home that can prove quite difficult to the uninitiated, though it is quite easy and straightforward to master. Here are some top tips to get you started, you may already have done some of them, but they can give you ideas going forward.
Spruce Up The Interior
You need to make sure everything inside looks great. Tidy the kids’ rooms and make sure it all looks neat and ready for inspection. The slightest thing can put perspective viewers off so make sure it look amazing. Square off all issues in the home and invest in making it fit for purchase. Consider a new paint job, a fresh lick of paint goes a long way and you can hire painters to do the job so it looks professional. Consider getting new carpet or flooring. Sure, it’s expensive, but it also adds more value to the house so you’ll be recouping the money further down the line. The better it looks the more chance you have of people buying the home and enabling you to move On.
Show Them Around Yourself
You can show people around yourself to really get your passion across. Sure, an estate agent knows their stuff and can sell a property but you know exactly what the neighbourhood is like and the surrounding areas. You know all of the local schools and stores. All of this information can really swing it in your favour. You can make a case for the home and the area in a way the agent simply cannot. Your passion will sell the house as much as the house itself. Make sure to namedrop any useful selling points that are in the immediate area and give a good account of yourself. Dress professional and ensure you act in a respectable way,
Ensure The Facade Look Amazing
This is important because it is the first thing they see. Their idea can be made or broke on this one image alone. Ensure it looks amazing. Remove any bins, even if it is collection day. Tidy the garden, mow the lawn and even consider planting some new flowery bushes or plants to give it a nicer look. Consider getting new windows, again, expensive but at the same time you’ll made the money back. You painted the inside but what about the outside? This is important too, make sure it looks bright and fresh otherwise it could turn them away. First impressions are everything, so go to lengths to make sure it is a good one that they remember when they go home.
