Selling a home is a very tedious work. You should be very careful while you are selling your home. There are
so many aspects that should be considered before you put your home for sale. Everyone would want to get
the best price for their home but it is always dependable on how you represent your home before a buyer.
Here are some tips that should be followed to get the best price for your home.
Disassociate yourself with your home: You will have to make a mental decision that you are selling your
home and now it is not your home. Make yourself think that you are giving your keys to the new owner of
the home. You will have to detach from all the emotions that are attached with the home. This is the first
step of selling your home.
De-personalize Things: Pack up all the things like photographs and other things that are showing your
attachment with the home. No one likes to buy a home which states emotions and feelings of the old owner.
Never let a buyer feel that it is not his house. Always make him feel that it is his house and he is going to live
there forever. This feeling makes him buy your home easily.
Set price of the home properly: Putting home value too high will not impress a buyer for the deal. Everyone
analyses the market and ask a realtor for market value before they started searching homes to buy which
gives them idea of how your home compares financially with similar, recently sold homes in your area. This
analysis also gives them an idea that how much you are expecting to earn after the deal is done.
Make minor remodeling: Do not forget to make some minor repairs like replacing cracked floor or counter
tiles, patching holes in walls, fixing leaking faucets, fixing doors that are do not close properly and kitchen
drawers that are jammed, painting your walls with some neutral colors, replacing electronic items if needed,
and worn bed spread. Do not give a buyer a chance to remember improper things while they came to see
Make a first impression good: restrain appeal is important. Keep your lawn and other landscaping neatly
trimmed, weeded and watered. Check the exterior of your home for signs of wear and damage, such as
flaking paint, base cracks or loose shingles, and fix what is required. Clean the outer surface of the house,
including windows. Many people recommend giving the front door a fresh coat of paint for that warm,
welcome feeling. In addition, adding a few flowers in the spring and summer, or keeping the walks cleared of
leaves and snow in the fall and winter can be inviting to potential buyers.
Keep your home neat and clean: Maintain the new and enhanced interior and exterior of your home until you
successfully sell. It is difficult, but necessary. A professional cleaning service may be able to help maintain the
new clean look with occasional visits.
Light your home up: When showing your house, provide plenty of light and make your home a warm,
welcoming place. Open the curtains to let in the sunshine. In the event of an evening showing, make sure you
have ample lighting available in all areas. Fresh cut flowers make a nice addition, and a pleasantly scented
house is very inviting.
