Real estate selling has become a very competitive industry, and although individuals are much in need of buying a house in some areas, it is important that you take extra measure to guarantee that you have done everything you can to make your house as beautiful, safe and marketable as possible.
Some say that the average house buyer has a limited vision – which implies that you need to help them to ‘envision’ themselves living in the house in the easiest way possible.
A dark paint job is definitely a turn off – same goes with stained, worn or foul-smelling carpets –these need to be attended to. On the carpet issue, you could offer an adjustment or cu off a fraction of the house costs for the carpeting or, if you can, make some investment yourself and have them replaced to get a potentially higher sale price. Walls must be repainted to a light color such as off white, antique white or very pale neutral shades if you plan to redecorate – this is not an option if your walls are stained, peeling or damaged.
This is also a good time to see to it that everything that you have been intending to repair is taken care of and is actually accomplished – a defective stair step, balusters or garden fences may merely be a minor bother to you, but can be a sign of danger to anyone looking at the real estate property.
It can be difficult to sell your house without assistance, but one of the greatest tips you can take to assure your property gets sold is to make sure you have removed your personal “imprint.” Analyze the appearance of the house impartially and remove anything that shows ‘my personality’ and ‘my personal space’ impression from it.
Things like pictures, pieces of unique art objects, and decorations and others may be removed before potential buyers arrive to view the house. Remember that they wish to buy the house, not to get to feel how you lived in it, so if you have not finished packing up your non essentials by the time you begin showing them the house, it’s about time to deliberate whether you actually need the clutter that are still unpacked – or whether it’s time to let them go for good.
