Are you contemplating selling your house but just don’t know where to start? The warm weather is here and buyers are out and about looking for their next home. So, as a seller, it is the best time to put your house on the market!
Put your best foot forward by preparing yourself for what’s to come and stage your home properly. This is where you can start with selling your house for a profit.
Staging requires a realtor’s professional help. You’ll find a lot of information and advice online, but be sure to do your homework and listen to licensed agents are knowledgeable in your local market.
As a realtor myself, my piece of advice is to make sure your exterior photo shot looks good. At first, buyers tend to search homes online via various listing service sites before they go out to view it personally. So you want to make sure that the outside of your home looks good, the lawn is green, shrubs are nicely trimmed, edges are nicely shot and everything else outside looks good. It’s all about that first impression!
When you have successfully attracted these potential buyers online with your nice looking exterior photos of your home, these buyers will surely schedule themselves for a property viewing to see more of the interior.
During a showing, be sure that your buyers get a complete feel for your home. That means how they feel, what they see and even what they smell. Be sure to neutralize any offending odors such as pet smells and cigarette smoke. You may need to contact professional cleaners to accomplish this if any smells persist after a thorough cleaning and airing out of the home.
