Selling your home? Here are some tips to impress your potential buyers

Do you just rely on your property agent to do the selling for you? Why not improve your chances of closing the deal faster and at your desired selling price? Home staging is a crucial part of the selling process, yet it is often the one thing that is overlooked. Property agents are tasked with the mammoth task of upselling and to take on the entire workload of reeling in potential buyers and to convince them that the property is meant for them. As a homeowner, it is important to play your part in doing a little spring cleaning to neaten up your home so that it appeals to a wide range of home seekers regardless of your style of interior design. Emphasizing your home’s features and strengths are important to improve your chances of closing the deal soon.

Tip 1: Spick and Span is your new best friend

Nobody likes to set foot in a home cluttered with furniture and other personal possessions which are not neatly kept away. It also doesn’t hurt to invest in a fresh coat of paint and replacing broken or cracked carpentry such as cabinet doors or mirrors. Decluttering your entire home also helps you to keep things in check by disposing unnecessary items which are of no use or are damaged while you are ‘preparing’ your home for viewing.

Tip 2: Using natural light to your advantage

Walking into a bright and well-ventilated home gives a positive first impression from the time potential home buyers walk in to your home. During viewings in the day, ensure that your curtains are drawn or your blinds are rolled up with the windows open. Well-lit spaces generally seem more spacious and the added incentive of natural light ensures that your home is bathed in the best hue that is welcoming.

Tip 3: Dress your home up

Introducing a touch of added homeliness with a vase of fresh flowers or bowl of fruits give a certain charm and vibrance to your home. This is particularly important if you are trying to sell your investment property and have not lived in that home before.

Tip 4: Find a pet-sitter for your furry friend

As much as you consider your furry friend as part of your family, some people may be allergic to certain pets or might be afraid of pets altogether. You don’t want to give them a jump scare upon entry with your pets, do you? Why not find someone who can help you look after your pets for the viewing timeframe or place them in a pet hotel. Also, don’t forget to remove any fur lying around in your home.

Tip 5: Know the specs of your home

While you may have a competent agent selling your home, you will still need to know the facts and figures at your fingertips. Information such as floor area, dimensions of each room, orientation of unit (north facing, south facing, etc) and neighbourhood amenities such as preschools, supermarkets, food courts, clinics, etc will prove to be valuable to your potential buyer. Young couple may value a preschool nearby for future kid plans while a family nucleus of a couple with young children may value a supermarket and primary school nearby.
