Selling a home is an easy transaction as long as you are prepared right. To get the asking price you need to be creative, persistent, and original in promoting your house.
Did you know that potential buyers will always decide whether they like a property or not in the first 60 seconds of their visit? That's right, one minute is enough for a complete stranger to decide if your home is their future house, or not.
Here's how to make a good first impression, thanks to five staging tips.
Fix What Needs Fixing
You don't have to remodel an entire kitchen or bathroom before listing your home, but you could invest a small amount of money in fixing it.
Before you open your home to potential buyers, make sure that everything in your home works perfectly. Water should be running smoothly, there shouldn’t be any hint of moisture, leaks, or heavy signs of a broken roof.
Tight up things a bit, and let the natural light in. Deal with anything broken, damaged, worn down, or squeaking.
Pro tip: A fresh coat of paint can do wonders when it comes to a first impression.
If you are still living in your home, you should make it less personal. Yes, small things are everything, but when it comes to selling your home fast, you need to make your space welcoming for new owners.
Potential buyers already know that you are linked with the house, but they still don't want to see your memories on every step. Keep home simple and generic. You can always do this by freshening up furniture a bit.
