Before you put your house up for sale, you should check the real estate market for similar homes for sale in your neighborhood. You need to know how many houses are currently for sale and what were the prices they were sold for.
Make sure your home is the most attractive in your neighborhood.
Are you familiar with buyers coming into your house go around the house, say thank you and then you don’t hear from them anymore? Then you raise all kinds of speculation why they do not come back, why there is no single offer on your house?
So, the most important thing you can do is clean your house and declutter, declutter, declutter!
Cleaning and decluttering is relatively a little hassle with the biggest effect.
So what should you do?
- Make sure to remove from the floor everything possible to create a space to move undisturbed in the house.
Toys, for example, in the children’s room should be in storage places designed for them.
This is an excellent opportunity to get rid of things you no longer need and take up unnecessary space
- Remove unnecessary furniture that does not fit in space.
- Open windows and shutters before any customer come in, and allow the sunlight to shine in. A dark house does not “invite” buyers to buy.
- It is very important to create a pleasant smell and throughout the house, the sense of smell is one of our most developed senses, and a good smell will certainly make buyers more interested in the property. I would even recommend baking a cake or making coffee before the buyers arrive, it creates a great smell and a very inviting feeling
- Set your AC to a pleasant temperature throughout the year.
- If it is dark outside when people come to see your house, make sure to turn on the lights, leave no dark spaces.
- Ask your realtor to let you know in advance to give you enough time to prepare your house for showing.
These are just some of the facts you should know that will help you prepare your house for a sale.
