Setting the price too high can deter potential buyers, while pricing too low may result in a quick sale but at a loss.
Clean, declutter, and depersonalize
First impressions are very important when selling a home. It’s key to create an environment that highlights the best features of the property and allows potential buyers imagine themselves living in the space. This can be achieved by ensuring that each room is cleaned from top to bottom. Remove any clutter that would impede potential buyers to see the home, and hide any personal items and family photos. It may be necessary at times to move furniture to make the space more inviting. Staging may be another alternative, and updating appliances or fixtures may further impress potential buyers and increase the overall appeal of the property.
Enhance curb appeal
As mentioned above, first impressions are very important. The first thing buyers see when they pull up to your property, is the exterior of the house and its surroundings. Make sure the pathway from the curb has been cleared of any debris. Plant fresh flowers and plants or sprinkle bark mulch to give the yard a freshly landscaped look.
Having a clean curb appeal will signal to potential buyers, that the property has been cared for. It will also set the tone for the rest of the house as being well maintained. Make those first few moments count!
Be accommodating with showings
Once the property is listed on the MLS, inquiries will arise with potential buyers wanting to view it. Open Houses on specific days and times, and hosted by the realtor will be a great way to showcase the property to the public. Some buyers may also ask for private showings, and so it is important to be flexible and accommodate these requests to potentially speed up the selling process.
