Simple Tips To Sell Your Home Fast

When selling your home, the smallest things can turn buyers away from your home. A hole in the wall, leaky sink or unfinished trim can take money out of your pocket! It is important to walk through your home with a buyers eye and create a to-do checklist. 

Here are some simple repairs that will help sell your home fast! 

1. Make a great first impression

When a buyer first enters your home, make sure they feel welcome! Repainting the front door, cleaning the walkway or adding flowers can improve the attractiveness of your home. 

2. If it’s broke – fix it!

When walking through your home, create a checklist of everything that needs to be repaired. Do not give a potential buyer reason to walk away from your home. Some potential problems to check for are holes, leaking faucets, broken doors, missing or cracked flooring and broken switches. Most buyers are looking for a ready to move in home, so why not fix any small repairs to get top dollar! 

3. Staging

Staging can highlight your home and downplay any flaws you might not want buyers to see. Removing clutter and old furniture can help buyers picture what life would look like in your home. Adding some fresh paint, artwork, flowers and greenery can really bring a room together! Professional stagers can help with this part of the process! 

4. Light

Good lighting will bring any room to life! Lighting is key to selling a home. Buyers want to walk into a brightly lit home with good vibes. Open curtains and allow the natural light to flow throughout the room and update any outdated light fixtures and light bulbs. 

5. Closets

Clear out those closets because buyers are looking for a lot of storage space! Reduce but do not fully remove the clothing. A reduced closet can trick your eye into thinking there is much more space than there actually is. 

6. Smells

Smells can be a major deterrent for potential buyers! Getting rid of smells is essential to selling your home fast. Do not use overbearing air fresheners to try to cover it up. The best thing is to remove the problem and then freshen up your home. Pets should also not be home when showing the house to potential buyers. 

7. Depersonalize

By removing personal items and photos in your home, potential buyers will more likely be able to picture themselves living in your home.
