Sell Your Home Faster with a Bit of Prepping



After the wedding your family will probably expand so it may be time to think about moving.
Selling your house can be heartbreaking, especially if it takes too long, and you get lowball offers. However, a little prep before the big day can have buyers flocking to your house and bidding like crazy.

Spend to Earn

Try to spruce up your house before selling it. Repair everything that needs repairing - both inside and outside your home. Serious buyers sometimes bring along a handyman to check a property they're interested in, and you want your home to pass with flying colors. Update the kitchen with granite countertops and deck it with one or two high-end appliances. Paint the cabinets and get brand-new knobs and handles. Your kitchen will look expensive, and potential clients will gladly shell out another $10,000 for o decent kitchen. Change your lighting fixtures and make sure they're a little bit brighter. A bright house appears more inviting and cheery, so take down the drapes and any bushes that would hamper the sunlight. Buy new doorknobs for every door, but make sure to pay closer attention to the front door. First impressions can make or break a deal, so make sure you wow your buyers even before they enter your house with beautiful flowers and shrubbery.

Make It Immaculate

Cleanliness is one of the most important aspects of making your house appear livable and inviting. Get rid of unnecessary clutter and even your more personal items. You want your buyers to imagine themselves living in the house, and 8x12 photos of your family lying around could dispel the illusion. Hire a professional cleaning company to go through your home before putting it in the market. Hiring professionals will make sure that your home is left immaculate, with no traces of dirt or odors. They can go to places that you can't reach, and they know how to clean a house properly. Not everyone loves pets, so a tuft of cat hair or the strong scent of dogs can make your home appear messy and unsanitary. Keep your pets with friends/family or at a local pet hotel.

Stage Everything

Staged houses sell at higher prices. While staging your home might entail moving out, it is the most effective way to reel in customers and get higher rates. You can opt for professional services when staging your house, but you can also do it yourself. See your home from a buyer's perspective and remove the little traces that make the home uniquely your own. Arrange furniture to highlight space; make sure beds and couches aren't touching corners or walls and making your rooms look smaller. Bake some cookies before the big day. Familiar scents can make a house more inviting, and the smell of cookies trigger hunger pangs, which can hopefully bring about feelings of immediate want. A good broker is essential in selling your house. A broker is part of the stage, and his/her knowledge and charm can add a couple of grand or more.

Selling fast and selling high are the biggest priorities in the property market. Invest a little time, effort, and cash - and reap the rewards once you sell your house at a higher price than you expected.
