I have decided to sell my home and what should I do to prepare to sell?A clutter free home is desirable so that many buyers can see home as their home with soft music floating as you walk in to set the tone. Lighting is important, please make sure you update all bulbs to daylight bulbs and open all blinds. This makes a huge difference with daylight. If you plan of having it vacant you may consider to have it staged especially a large home. This is more so a psychology idea to show buyer's more of a visual. Some buyers cannot see or vision how it would look without furniture. Home staging have a series ideas such as mirrors, plants, small love seats, Ottomans, Artificial Flat Screen's and Fruit Bowls. New Furniture and appliances. Inside you will find polished furniture, all tile and grout cleaned, carpet fresh. Towels, toilet paper and soap dish in bathrooms. regional prices vary depending on size of home. Outside must maintain exquisite curb appeal to include, landscaping and manicured lawn. Each room to have a difference mild fragrance as you walk in. Sign outside with balloons for open houses on weekends with proper marketing materials and social media plastered everywhere.
Providing you do not stage, ensure home is clutter free and fragrance throughout home, carpets freshly vacuum, baseboard swept, ceiling fan dust removed off of blades, toilet and sinks and windows cleaned, stove, refrigerator, microwave cleaned and floors mopped. Finding the right realtor can be challenging sometimes, things to look for is realtor active in the market, referral base, personal website, ethics, morals and look for more online concerning the realtor you plan to hire. Exterior eaves of home, driveway and sidewalks power washed. This gives a huge impression for any driver by family to catch attention and draw them into home to see. These are simple ideas to strike the right buyer and have a contract presented with the right price. I encourage you to go to open houses and get some ideas.
Remember it's you realtor job to apply the best price along with features and benefits compared to other homes that are up for sell.
