Why You Need To PREPARE YOUR HOUSE For Sale
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Many home sellers do not see the need to prepare their homes when they list them for sale. These properties usually do not see much cleaning upon completion – dust and dirt fly around so freely. Just as the presentation of food makes it either appetising or uninviting, the state of a property during a viewing or marketing can affect the mood of the deal.
A clean property gives the buyer a better idea of the place (s)he could call home. So misrepresenting what the property offers can make the “perfect home” a snub to potential buyers.
Some Ways to Prepare Your Home for Sale
- Clean Up
An unkempt exterior will give an impression of poor maintenance even on the inside. Repaint if need be. Clean metal frames and glass windows. De-silt the drains. Make the entrance beautiful. Dust up, polish up, and give a shine to anything that needs it. Hire cleaners if you need to.
- The Front Door
This is what you see and touch before you enter your home. Make it worth looking at every day. Paint it in a beautiful and maybe contrasting colour to the property so it stands out.
- Eliminate Bad Odours
Keep the rooms smelling fresh during a viewing. It helps give your property a touch of “home sweet home“. We remember smells, scents and odours. Let the buyer leave with a good impression of how the property smells.
- Upgrade the Landscape
Mow the lawn, prune flowers, trim the bushes, weed around and keep the greens really green.
- Light Up
A bright room looks cheerful. Gradually, solo lights are fading out. Invest in good lighting.
- Make Repairs
Little tweaks make a big difference. Fix major defects. Replace broken switches, fix and plumbing, etc.
- Organise and De-clutter
A well-organised space gives an appearance ample space and roominess. Put away your personal items – buyers want to envision themselves in your home.
- Make the bathroom a Spa
Get some nice soft towels, bath oils and nice fragrances and candles to spice up the bathroom. Create a luxurious and relaxing atmosphere.
First impressions, and they go a long way – make it count and let’s sell!
