The FIRST impression is the ONLY impression
When it comes to selling you only have ONE chance to make a good first impression. Even if the interior of your home looks amazing the buyer is already making judgments before walking through the front door.
Secret #1: Having good curb appeal. It is important to make your potential buyers feel welcomed and safe. Typically you can get a 100% return on the investment you made to improve the exterior of your home. Check out our 10 tips to increase curb appeal.
Price it Right
Find out what your home is really worth, get the value of your home here. Take 15% - 20% off of that valuation, this will help attract more potential buyers which is the key to creating a bidding war.
Secret #2: Price it right. In this case, they will bid above the price of what your home is actually worth. By creating a sense of competition, you will ultimately increase the price that buyers are willing to pay. Many sellers are hesitant to price their home below what the market value is, but this is one of the best strategies to take when trying to sell your home.
De-Personalize your Home
Secret #3: "Take the home out of your home". The more personal stuff like pictures that you have in your home the harder time buyers will have visualizing themselves living there. Remove things like family photographs, keepsakes, and even pets. If possible keep your pet at a neighbors house or with friends/family while potential buyers are visiting. Not everyone loves cats or dogs. Don't forget to hide pet beds, toys, food bowls, litter boxes etc.
Light it Up
Did you know we’re psychologically programmed to move toward light? Secret #4: good lighting is something every buyer wants in a home. A great way to add light into your home is to open your curtains, clean your windows, and increase the wattage of your light bulbs. The focus is on making your home as bright and cheery as possible!
