1. PRICE YOUR HOME CORRECTLY
When you work with a professional real estate agent, they have the experience and know-how to best answer the question of what your home is worth. Your Realtor® can run a comparative market analysis and size up the current competition. This analysis allows your real estate agent to come up with the correct number the first time.
2. DECLUTTER AND DEPERSONALIZE
When listing your home for sale, you are marketing your home's layout and square footage. Depersonalizing your home will give the buyers a chance to imagine their furnishings in the space rather than be distracted by your family's memories. De-cluttering the area will allow your home to appear larger. If you are stuck on how to do this, consider hiring the help of a home stager. Remember that the first impression is the only impression that matters; it is what buyers will remember.
3. BRIGHT LIGHTING AND HALF-EMPTY CLOSETS
Storage is something everyone is looking for in a home. By taking half of the clothes out of your closets and organizing what is left, you create the illusion of having more space in a critical area. Make sure windows are clean and drapes are open. Maximizing the light in your home will also help it seem larger and leave a bright and cheery impression.
4. PRE-PACK UNNECESSARY ITEMS
If it is vital to get your home sold fast, pack up things you don't need and stage your home to show off its best qualities. Unnecessary furniture, clothing, and knickknacks can be put into storage. You want to highlight your home and not your stuff.
5. UPGRADE SIMPLY WITHOUT GOING OVERBOARD
Quick, simple fixes before you list your home always pay off, sometimes mammoth makeovers don't. Simple things like putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls, hiring a cleaning crew to come and thoroughly clean your home, or updating cabinet hardware and dated lighting will help you get top dollar for less than a remodel.
