How to Prepare Your Home for a Quick, Successful Sale

You have decided to put your home on the market – congratulations, what an exciting time! Now here is hoping for that quick easy sell. What might help, aside from luck is having a knowledgeable estate agent on your side that will not only advise you but make sure your home is presented in the right way to attract the right buyers.

While there are many things that us as an estate agent can do to raise interest to your home, here are a few tips on what you might do while waiting for those first eager home buyers to come view your home:

Pay attention to the outside of your home

A fresh flower pot by a freshly painted door can make a right first impression. It has been said that home buyers make their decision in the first few minutes of seeing a home so make sure that first impression is the right one.

Small maintenance jobs

Home buyers are facing a huge investment and they want to make sure they do it right. That is why tackling the some tasks can help with buyers interest as that will be one less hassle (and expense) for them to worry about when moving in.

Clean and Declutter

It has probably been said too many times, but for good reason: a clean, tidy home is more inviting and will be more welcoming to potential buyers. They will more easily see themselves and their possessions in their new home. A lovely fresh scent also helps and some go so far as to bake cookies right before a viewing so the smell is as inviting as can be.

Add finishing touches

Add a bouquet of fresh flowers on the dining table, a crisp set of bed linen in the master bedroom, make sure the rooms are as bright and aired as possible – and you are ready.

Potential buyers appreciate these touches and you will see that in the level of interest your home raises as well as the final sale price.
