When selling a home, you really must put yourself in the mind of a buyer. Do you want to see all of their clutter, personal belongings and forgotten home improvement needs? Of course not. Now if you want to be a smart seller, you need to follow these 5 quick and easy steps to beautifying your listed home to wow potential buyers and to move on.
Storage Space – You want to assure that your potential buyers see room for all of their things. Expanding space that is already there would be installing a closet system. One of the main things that buyers look for is space to put all of their crap. Did you make enough room for theirs?
Clear the Clutter! Along with all of the expanding, your potential buyers still want to physically see the room for their stuff. So by physically clearing out the space that you are advertising is a key element. Making your house to as close to empty in your storage areas specifically will lead your buyers down a prim rose path.
Show more wood floor – Most people are not attracted to dirty lived on carpet if it is less than average. If your carpet is hiding those old wood floors in your home—rip it out! Wooden floors make homes look and feel more modern and functional, not to mention more beautiful.
Clear those old treatments – Bad, old, dusty, broken or unsightly are all words associated with window treatments that should be removed and/or replaced before a potential buyer comes in to look. Snazz it up quick with a set of new modern shades.
Be a good host – Most important factor in selling your home! Make sure that you greet your guests at the door, give them plenty of space but still be available for questions. Be the host with the most.
