Selling a home can be difficult but here are a few tips to make the process easier. Follow and they will led you to the Path to SOLD!!!
Make the mental decision to let go of your home. You can do this by picturing yourself giving the keys to the new owner. Also, understand that your home is now a house, a product that you desire to sell, for top dollar, and fast.
De-Personalize. Remove personal photos, trophies, degrees, and family heirlooms. The goal is for buyers to see themselves living there, not wonder who lives here.
De-Clutter…empty spaces create openness and makes everything look larger. Remove books from the bookcases, clean off kitchen countertops, put essential items in small boxes that can be stored in the closet or cabinets.
Order. Think back when you were shopping to buy a home, you probably opened the kitchen cabinets, peaked in the pantry, and looked in closets. Make sure closets and kitchen cabinets are neat and tidy. Line shoes ups, hang shirts by color facing the same directions, alphabetize spices, group canned foods, etc…now it the time to be OCD.
Remove items that you desire to keep and take to your next home. This includes window coverings, built-in or fixtures, because when a buyer tour a home and sees them, they want them. Make it easy for a buyer to see exactly what they are getting.
Honey Do List. Make those minor repairs such as replace cracked floor tiles, patch holes in walls, fix leaky faucets, replace burned-out light bulbs, fix doors and kitchen drawers that don’t close properly, and paint the wall neutral colors.
Shine Bright like a Diamond…make the house sparkle. Clean out cobwebs, dust, polish chrome faucets, clean the stainless fridge, stove and microwave, re-caulk the tub, showers, and sinks, pressure wash sidewalks and the exterior of the house. And don’t forget to clean the windows.
The Nose always knows…the house should smell fresh and clean. Try scents like vanilla or citrus fruit.
Curb Appeal Appeals…mow the lawn, trim the bushes, plant yellow flowers (yellow induces a buying emotion), paint faded window trim.
If you follow the above tips, selling your home will happen faster and easier. Most buyers want to know the home they are buying was well cared for and is move-in ready. For assistance or further direction, do not hesitate to give me a call or text. 214-284-3432. I look forward to hearing from you.
