5. Don’t Over-Upgrade: Yes, quick fixes before selling are great! But these are QUICK fixes like patching nail holes, repainting, cleaning the curtains, replacing the door handles/cabinet hardware, deep cleaning the grout. Usually, it is best to steer clear of the mammoth makeovers. You will most like not get your money back if you dive into a massive improvement project before your home hits the market.6. Use the Right Agent: One way to kill your selling your home? Hire the wrong agent. Make sure you have an agent who is informed and ready to work for you! They are crucial when it comes to finding the correct comps and pricing your home right. Pricing your home right is KEY to getting reasonable offers, and a good agent will help you do that. Usually, sellers want to overinflate the list price to get higher offers. Unfortunately, this often leads to a lower final sales price.
7. Let There Be Light: You want your home to be bright and cheery. Home shoppers ranked good light right after location when hunting for a home. Because of this, you want to do everything to light up your home. Some great ideas include; removing drapes, cleaning the windows, changing out the lampshades, increasing the wattage of your bulbs, and trimming bushes outside your windows.
8. No Clutter and Half-Empty Closets: Tip number four was all about taking the home out of your house – and this goes hand in hand. You want people to picture themselves living there, which is hard to do when they are overwhelmed by your stuff. Be sure to pack up clutter and even empty some of your closets! Storage is something everyone wants. By taking out half the things in your closet and neatly organizing what’s left, the closets will feel spacious and tidy!
