If you’ve made the decision to sell your home, or perhaps you’ve had it listed for a while and it’s not moving, there are some things you can do that will help to increase your chances of a sale. You should firstly consult the help of a professional REALTOR to get your home priced and marketed appropriately, but here’s what you can take care of to help it along:
Home Upgrades/Curb Appeal:
You want your home to look as appealing as possible to potential homebuyers, so make any small upgrades you can to ensure it’s in tip-top shape. For example: a new coat of paint and updated flooring goes a really long way. You’ll also want to make sure the outside of your home is pristine (it’s the first thing they see).
Clean and Organize:
When prospective homebuyers are shopping, they want to be able to envision themselves living somewhere, which makes it really hard to do if your home is full of clutter. Make sure your home is clean, organized and clutter-free.
Make Your Home Accessible:
To make things easier on everyone during the home sale process, when showings are scheduled, make sure you and your pets (if you have them) are out of sight. Also stay away from keeping doors locked or inaccessible.
