Spring is here, scores of buyers are hunting for homes and there’s an inventory shortage across the country, making it an ideal time to list your property. Two keys to selling your home quickly are pricing it right and making sure it appeals to buyers. Here are a few things you can do to make your property stand out.
Boost curb appeal. You get only one chance to make a positive first impression. To make your house’s exterior enticing, repaint the front door, pressure-wash the driveway, front walk and patios, trim shrubs and trees, and add fresh flowers to your front yard.
Declutter and depersonalize. Decluttering is the key to making your home appear more spacious. Go through each room and decide which pieces of furniture and other items to keep, donate or put in storage, and remove family photos and personal knickknacks from walls, shelves and tables. This will help buyers envision your home becoming theirs.
Make improvements. Every property has room for improvement, and we can help. Our RealVitalizeSM program lets you fix up your home to prepare it for sale, with no up-front costs. You don’t pay us back until closing – with no hidden fees, interest charges or markups.
Deep clean your house. A sparkling clean home will give buyers the impression your house is well taken care of. Clean from top to bottom, including windows, window treatments, ceiling fans, baseboards, countertops, cabinets, flooring and appliances.
Repaint in neutral colors. A fresh coat of paint can make the interior feel new.To appeal to a broader audience, repaint your walls in warm neutral colors, such as beige, tan, gold or gray.
