When you sell your home, the process is synonymous to going on a job interview. Selling a home involves presentation, which is one of the key factors that determines the outcome. Although this may sound a bit weird, presentation is a way of life in the world of real estate. Buyers in today’s market look for good presentation with many basing their final decisions on it.
Curb Appeal – When a potential buyer first pulls up to your home, the first thing he will see is your lawn. If your lawn is trimmed and well taken care of, he will get a good impression right off the bat. If your lawn is a wreck, he may immediately pull away. To give the best impression to the buyer, you should put some thought into how things look. You can always plant flowers around the walkway and throughout the yard, which will look great to a potential buyer. Mulching your beds and removing all debris also needs to be done.
Entry – You should also make sure that the entrance into your home is positive as well. The front door should be in great shape, as well as the entry area into the home. You can add some plants, paintings, and rugs to ensure that your buyer gets a good impression. When the buyer walks through the entry way into your home, you should make sure that the view he or she takes in is a good on. Your biggest goal when showing your home is to ensure that the buyer is pleased.
Clutter – Remove all clutter. It is often beneficial to get a storage building to store items not in use and ensure that all closets are cleaned out and have space. If the property you are selling comes with a garage, you will need to go through your garage before you sell your home. Chances are that you store things in your garage which can easily pile up over time before you realize it. If your garage is in a messy condition, you’ll obviously want to clean it out. Buyers look for homes that are in perfect condition, and anything less than perfect will look bad in the eyes of the buyer and may reduce the value of your home to your buyer.
Staging – Most homes have some truly outstanding features inside of them. You should always do your best to highlight the best features of your home, instead of just hoping that the buyer understands what they are. The ideal way to bring out the best features of your home is to use the proper lighting. If your home is clean, you can use lighting to bring out the best features in your home, and ensure that they stand out to the buyer.
Keep in mind that it may take some time to sell your home. Every Seller should ensure that the things they have control of such as condition and pricing meet the expectations of the majority of the buyers that they are trying to reach.
