In a declining economy where there is more supply than demand, these tips can help your home stand out from the rest and improve your chances of getting a buyer.
Clean your home. This simple trick is often taken for granted but you will be surprised to see how a simple clean up will improve the value of your home. Cleaning your home is not only limited to storing the trash away; this also means removing old furnitures to make the room bigger or removing wall decors to achieve a neutral look. Potential buyers need to be able to picture themselves with the space.
Improve the curb appeal. External appearance is as important as the house interior. To entice potential buyers to even look at your house, revamp your curb’s appeal by applying a fresh coat of paint to your fences, trim the bushes, and keep your lawn clean.
Post a video on Youtube. Showcase your home by recording a video using a camera or smart phone. Walk through your home and your neighborhood while telling your buyers about your house. Include the good features in your neighborhood such as malls within walking distance, favorite coffee shop that you frequented on, and amusement parks for a week-end picnic. Let the buyers feel how great it is to be in your neighborhood.
Price it right. Regardless of how well you stage and market your house if the price is way too high, buyers will always look for another alternative. You can get an estimate of your house’s value by checking the local market. Look for properties with similar features as yours; their price should give you an idea how to price yours. You can also hire an appraiser to conduct market analysis and give you a more accurate price.
