Even in the best of times, selling your house is an emotional undertaking. Preparing to move is stressful and getting your house ready for market can feel like a full-time job. Then there’s the flood of memories to contend with when you open a long forgotten box or drawer.
The best thing you can do for your mental state and to reduce stress, is to get help.
Here are 3 Ways to Make Selling Your House Faster and More Profitable:
1-De clutter When you go into a show kitchen the only thing on the counter might be a utensil holder. Likewise, when you look through magazines, look at the kitchen pictures. The countertops are clear of mail/groceries/keys and other sundry items. Is yours?
Start with one room like the kitchen and clean off the counters and tabletops. Toss what you don’t need and file or put away the rest. Clean out the drawers while you’re at it. When your realtor brings people to your home, people will open drawers and cupboards. Make easy for them to picture themselves there.
Everyone wants to dream of themselves in a clean and clutter free environment. If you’re having difficulty deciding what to toss or where to put things, a home organizer can help you.
2-Fix plumbing You’re used to the running toilet or slightly dripping faucet. However, your prospects aren’t and they’ll notice it. A survey by I.R.I.S. (Interior Redesign Industry Specialists), says fixing these “minor” problems can result in a 196% return on investment!
A handyman can usually fix these and other issues cheaper than a plumber.
3–Curb Appeal Your potential buyers will often drive by a house to see if they’re even interested in seeing it. Make it look enticing so they’ll want to come inside.
Your front entrance should be appealing with a good-looking door, attractive lighting and accents appropriate for the type of house you have-formal, casual, etc.
Replace old hardware or clean it well if it’s vintage and goes with the house. Replace worn light fixtures, floor mats and mailboxes. Make sure your house number is clear and visible.
Don’t forget the yard itself! New plantings, even a new walkway can result in faster sales of your home. Landscapers can assist you in getting the right balance for your budget.
