5 Secrets That Will Help You Sell Your Home
The housing market is much stronger than it was five years ago, but buyers are also a lot smarter. If you’re selling your home then you’ll know there’s a lot more that goes into it than just hiring a realtor. Here are five secrets to get your house selling faster in a more competitive market.
People can never get enough storage space, and buyers looking at your home will undoubtedly do a little snooping. Take half of all your stuff out of your closets and cabinets and re-organize. This will give the impression that your storage spaces are bigger and more appealing.
Good lighting is a primary concern for homebuyers. Take down those old drapes and blinds and hire a professional to clean your home’s windows–inside and out. A professional service will do a thorough job and be able to get all those places you won’t be able to reach on your own. Call Prime Time Window Cleaning to book an appointment for your home.
Depersonalize (Pets too!)
When homebuyers look at a house they want to be able to see themselves in it. Take down all your pictures, memorabilia, keepsakes, and any other personal items. And if you have pets, remove any evidence of them living there. Send them to a doggy hotel and remove all toys, dishes, and beds from the premise and do your best to clean their hair from your home. Not everyone is a dog or cat person and if they know an animal has lived in the home it may be a turn-off.
Optimize Curb Appeal
Before buyers even step into your home they have already made a judgement. You want your home to be warm, welcoming, and attractive to the outside world. Hire a professional cleaning service to pressure wash your house, deck, and driveway so that it looks new and up-to-date. Pressure washing can be tricky which is why hiring professionals will yield much better results than doing it yourself. A home that looks dirty and unkempt is not one that people want to start a new life in.
Most people are not in the market for a fixer-upper. Do a thorough run-through of your home and make sure everything is clean and in proper working order. Check doorknobs, windows and windowsills, sprinkler system, gutters, and anything else you can think of. Gutters are particularly important because if ignored the buildup can create clogging issues and become home to wild critters, and no one buys a home with a built-in pest problem. At Prime Time Window Cleaning we offer professional gutter cleaning services. Contact us to make an appointment!
Selling your home can be a long and difficult process, but these five tips should make it a lot easier. Get your home looking brand new by scheduling an appointment with Prime Time Window Cleaning. See you soon and good luck!
