Selling your home quickly for the highest price involves a balance of price and desire. A home that is very desirable will naturally bring a higher price. With this in mind let’s focus on a few things that you can do to get your home looking its best. Keep in mind that spending hundreds of dollars properly can pay you back thousands.
First, the front of your home is the first thing your potential buyers will see. The impression they get from the exterior of your home will determine if they wish to spend their time viewing the interior. It is worth the small investment to have a gardener spend a day or two cutting back overgrown vegetation, cleaning out the weeds and spreading some new top soil. Be sure to also plant some colored flowers to set off your landscaping. Lastly, get your lawn in shape with a nitrogen based fertilizer which will bring back the deep green color and keep it regularly mowed.
Have your home deep cleaned focusing on the kitchen and bathrooms. Remember, the more comfortable buyers feel using all of your homes facilities, the more money they will likely pay for your home. If someone can look at your kitchen and visualize cooking a nice meal or look at your bathtub and see themselves taking an enjoyable bath in it, you are on the right track.
If your home has not been painted in the last 10 plus years, you may also want to consider putting a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home. Choose a neutral color as you will limit the number of buyers using a bright or bold color. This is also true for your interior. You would be shocked as to how many homes get passed over because the purple bedroom was the impression that stuck out most in the minds of the buyers
Is your home too busy? Having too many objects and nick knacks gives your home a feeling of clutter and confinement. A clean and organized room gives you the feeling peacefulness and space. Remember that your buyers are looking for a home that they can relax in and enjoy. Box up any of these unwanted items and store them in your garage along with any additional furniture so that your rooms will feel more spacious.
Depending on your current furnishings, consider having your home professionally staged. Understand that most of us have a difficult time envisioning what a room could look like when it is professionally decorated. It can certainly leave a lasting impression.
