Before selling: Selling your home can be an emotional rollercoaster as well as an exciting adventure. The prospect of what lies ahead can be as daunting as the thought of living a home you’ve built around your life. Before deciding to sell your home, you have had your options weighed and if you’re reading this, you have come to a resolution. Here, we will help you make a seamless transition from deciding to sell your home to handing the keys to the new owners. Hence the need to pay attention to the following tips keenly:
Once you have made the resolve to sell, the next step is to declutter your home from the items that do not highlight its beauty. Take your time to sought out things that if seen can spike controversy or bias towards your home. In truth, this can be a bit tricky because you can’t exactly predict one’s bias, especially when it’s one that isn’t deduced from religion, sexuality, race, or any outward appearance.
However, you can remove as much as you see unnecessary but ensure that you don’t depersonalize. This means that you shouldn’t strip it off of all things that make it yours. People will most often buy into your lifestyle if they can see how it exudes through your home.
2. Your home will be judged by its cover:
Even the book quote admonition won’t fly here because your home will be judged by the look of the window, its roof, well-groomed lawn, beautiful exterior, well-maintained fence, the front door, the garage door, proper lighting, tidy bins, and a couple of other things that appeal to the eyes. All these and more should be spruced up for some positive lasting impressions.
3. Choose a good estate agent:
This is just as important as sprucing your home up. Without a good estate agent that knows his or her onions, your home will not be sold for its true value. You want to choose an agent that understands your home just as much as you do. One who will speak of your home in that light and get your buyer to exchange in payment that is commensurable to the value of your home.
Apart from the invaluable memories you’ve had in your home, you don’t want your estate agent or yourself feeling like a fraud when selling your home. This means that for every part of your home that you highlight, its fixtures must align to the value placed on it. Check your pipes, vents, floorboards, upgrade your kitchen countertops, cupboards, change old curtains, repaint, etc.
5. No unpleasant odor:
Apart from repairs, and beautifying your home, you want to make sure that your home smells as appealing as it looks. You want to make sure you take out any moth breeding fixture in your home, maybe rugs that let’s out foul smells. Add some natural greeneries that help to deodorize your home. If need be, add an artificial air freshener but one whose odor won’t be considered too strong.
Selling your home can be as emotionally exhausting as it can be physical also. Regardless of what the market says, do these basic tips and ensure that your home gets a buyer that understands the value of your home as much as you do.
