Selling a Home

Preparing Your Home for Sale

Houses are bought on emotions. If you remember when you bought your house, you probably decided you liked it before you verified it met your other requirements. That’s why the cosmetic appearance of your home is as important as the statistics. Make sure the home is neat and clean and everything is well maintained. Good taste in neutral decorating goes a long way towards appealing to the largest number of people. Eliminate clutter wherever possible. The way your home looks from the street is extremely important since that is the first impression people have of your home. Keep the lawn mowed and landscaping neat. The goal is to make the best impression on the potential buyers from the first glance and make them as comfortable as possible in what you hope will be their new home. Making them comfortable is so important, it is best to not be at home when they view your home. It is difficult for potential buyers to relax when they feel they are intruding on the owners. Even worse if the owner is watching their every move and hanging on their every word to see if they like their home or not. If there are items you want to take with you, such as special light fixtures or landscaping, replace it before you put the home on the market. No matter how many times you tell buyers you’re taking something with you, they always feel cheated when you take it away from them. Your real estate professional can give you many more tips on a personal level.
