6 Powerful Ways to Get More Real Estate Listings Fast
Did you know that making a few small home improvements can skyrocket the chances of your home selling quickly? If you are in the market for a new home but need to sell your home first, there are a couple of things you can do to vastly improve your chances of a quick sale.
Do you remember the old saying "you only get one chance to make a good first impression"? That's not only true when you meet someone or apply for a job, it's also true when you are trying to sell your home.
First, decide that you'll be perfectly honest with yourself. Also, take the opportunity to ask someone who is brutally honest, to help you see your home through the eyes of a potential buyer. Having done that, drive up and down your neighbourhood for a block each way from your home. What stands out to you about any of the other homes in your neighbourhood? Any certain paint combinations, yard decor or maybe even a white picket fence?
Now take note of your home and ask your friend to help. If there is anything about your front that needs attention, that should be the focus of your first home improvements. It could be a simple as repairing cracks in your driveway or painting the trim around windows and doors. Maybe you need to add some colourful flowers that stand up and contrast with the colour of the front of your home. If you impress that potential buyer with the first things they see when they drive up, you are about half way home to impressing them all the way.
Next, swing your front door open and take a really long look at things. That's the next thing a buyer will see as she comes to preview your home. If you have painted your walls with some kind of outlandish paint colour that you just love, remember that your buyer may not share your taste or enthusiasm for that colour combination.
Consider repainting, at least the first room they'll see, with an off white colour. That will brighten up the room and it is the most universally accepted colour for walls, sure not to offend the eyes of your buyer. Carpet, window dressings and furniture arrangement can be other areas of attention but the home improvements you most want to concentrate on are the first impression things. These are what makes a home sell quickly.
