Here are 6 effective tips to help you get started.
1. Depersonalize & Declutter
Depersonalizing your home is important when selling your home, as you want your potential buyers to be able to envision themselves there. If you still have photos of your family up, it can really detract from the immersion of touring your home. This leads us to decluttering. A cluttered home is distracting and can break immersion as well. Be sure that your home provides an open, specious demeanor that is free of personalized items.
2. Tend to the Landscape
Your landscape is one of the first things potential buyers see when driving past or touring your home. And as the saying goes, “a first impression can last a lifetime,” be sure it’s a good one. While it can pay to hire a professional landscaping company to revamp your yard, sometimes that’s simply not in the budget or desired. Things such as mowing the lawn, mulching flowerbeds, plants and trees can do wonders enhancing your home's appeal without costing much except your time.
3. A Fresh Coat of Paint
A fresh coat of paint will give you more bang for your buck than many other home renovations. Dark colors can shrink the buyer’s perception of space in a room. While old, stained paint adds unwanted age to a room. Painting with contemporary colors and/or sticking with neutral colors offers the most effective appeal to buyers when selling your home.
4. Beautiful Photography
“A picture is worth a thousand words.” In the virtual selling environment, we live in today, having quality imagery of your home online is essential for selling your home. The internet is one of the ways that many potential buyers are going to see your home for the first time, and the lasting impression… good or bad, will stay with them. Enticing your audience online with exceptional photography of your home will open many opportunities to make even further impressions later.
5. Deep Clean
This one is obvious. However, doing a thorough clean of the home will point out any areas in need of improvement, help you declutter and depersonalize the home. As well as giving it that “new home shine” that your potential buyers will fall in love with.
6. Proper Marketing
We mentioned the online buying/selling environment that we currently live in above, and we’re now going to dive a bit further into that. Once you have great photography of your home posted online, it’s important that those photos are advertised in the right manner to attract as many “qualified” potential buyers as possible to get the best results. This means marketing through the right channels online - in particular, social media. Doing so will help attract attention to your listing and direct people to contact your real estate agent directly or to visit their website to see further photos of your beautiful home.
