If you are going to be selling your home, then you want to make sure you do certain things that will help you to sell your home fast and for as close to the asking price as possible. The information here will help you along as you are trying to sell your home:
1: Always be ready to show the home
When you are ready to sell your property, your agent can call you at any time wanting to show it to prospective buyers. If you have allowed it to get so cluttered that it will take you a couple days to pick up then you will have two options. You can show it in its cluttered state or you can request to put off the showing until you have time to clean. The problem is that both of these things can result in the potential buyer choosing to go with another house over yours.
2: Remove things that make the house look too much like 'your' home
When a person is looking at your home for themselves they are going to want to imagine it as their own. If you have tons of family pictures up and mementos of your own then it's going to be harder for the buyer to imagine the house filled with their own things. As soon as you know you are putting the house up for sale you should start clearing out your own items, leaving the bare minimum. You also want to make sure what you leave out, such as your furniture, is the stuff that's in the best condition.
3: Have a contingency plan for your pets
If you have pets then you won't want them getting in the way during the showing. You want to have the buyers feeling free to walk through the house without worrying about letting your indoor cat out or without worrying about being bitten by your barking dog. If you have a neighbor you can move the pets to quickly, this is best. Otherwise, you may want to invest in some kennels you can put out of the way that you can keep them in during the showing.
4: Make sure your yard looks great
As the buyers pull up to your house you want them to be welcomed by a charming front yard since this will be their very first impression of the house. Keep up wot the weeding, pick up after your dogs daily, do your best to keep the grass nice and green and make any exterior repairs that need to be taken care of.
