We know that selling a home can be stressful and overwhelming, especially for first-time sellers.
Follow these 10 tips from Miten Mavani and get the most out of selling your home!
Tip #1: The Right Price
You want to set a competitive price that will entice potential buyers, without scaring them off.
Compare with similar homes in your area to make sure you understand your local market to find out what your home is really worth.
Tip #2: Have Your Paperwork Ready
You’re the expert of your home, so be prepared for any questions that potential buyers may ask.
Make yourself a binder of all documented repairs, renovation details, utility bills, warranties and any other important documents.
Tip #3: Curb Appeal
First impressions are everything, so you want your home exterior to look neat and cared for.
Simply mowing your lawn, trimming the bushes and planting a few flowers will add value to your home!
Tip #4: Depersonalize Your Home
Potential buyers need to be able to imagine themselves living in your home.
You’ll want to clear out crowded closets and remove personal items like pictures and heirlooms, even if this means putting some things in storage.
Clutter and bulky furniture can also make your home feel smaller than it is, so make sure to get rid of non-essentials.
Tip #5: Deep Clean
Consider getting a professional cleaning, especially if you have an animal in the home.
Any odors left behind from your pets, and even general cooking smells, can detract potential buyers from envisioning themselves in your home.
Tip #6: Fresh Paint
A fresh coat of paint is the most inexpensive and effective way to “remodel” your home!
Choose modern, neutral colors and go for light tones that will make your rooms feel brighter and more spacious.
Tip #7: Give Your Home A Photoshoot
The listing pictures are the first look a buyer gets of your home, before even stepping foot on the property.
Even if it means hiring a photographer, make sure to take professional-looking photos with good lighting to properly showcase your home.
Tip #8: The Kitchen
At the end of the day, it’s all about the kitchen! The kitchen is arguably the most important space in your home, so it’s worth investing a little time and money to spruce it up.
Make your kitchen appealing to potential buyers by refreshing the cabinets, installing a new countertop or purchasing a stainless-steel appliance.
Tip #9: Take Care Of Repairs
Home inspections are an inevitable process of buying and selling a home, so you may as well stay ahead of the game!
Buyers will always use repairs as an excuse to drive down the sale price. If you can fix some things in your home, do it!
Tip #10: Work With A Realtor!
Working with an experienced real estate agent can make all the difference in helping you sell your home quicker, for a better price, and with less headaches.
A good realtor will provide valuable knowledge and insight about the current market and can help you price your home accurately.
