Before putting your home on the market, there are a few quick and low cost steps you can follow to increase your chances of receiving an offer from a buyer. First impressions make a huge difference when selling a home, and these 5 tips will ensure you leave a great one without having to do anything drastic!
Have professional listing photos taken. A great first impression makes a huge difference when potential buyers are choosing to view a home or not. Professional listing photos (with great angles) allow your home to be viewed in the best possible light. When listing with NXT Realty Group, professional photos are always one of the services we provide.
- Ensure all light fixtures have working light bulbs (and stock up on extras). After listing photos, an in person showing provides buyers with a better picture of what it would be like to live in your home. Having a bright and inviting home increases the appeal of your property and doesn't break the bank.
- Do a deep clean of your house. A dirty home leaves a bad impression, and can make your home seem like it is in worse repair than it actually is. Make sure all surfaces are clean and clear of dust and don't forget to clean the bathrooms as well (yes, some buyers will check everything)!
- Declutter as much as possible. Ever notice how minimalistic homes tend to look bigger than they actually are? Having lots of open space and less clutter allows potential buyers to more easily envision how they would arrange their belongings in the home. So, if it doesn't spark joy, go ahead and give your home the Marie Kondo treatment!
- Paint the walls to freshen up the place! An easy way to refresh or brighten up an older home is to change the paint to a neutral white or off-white coloiur. This is also an easy way to cover up any imperfections that your walls may have accumulated over the years.
