Mistakes made when selling a home can be costly when it c omes to time and money. Let’s take a closer look at these 8 tips for selling a home that will help set you up for success.

🤩 Tip 1 – Create a Great First Impression

The first time a potential buyer sees your home is most likely through photographs associated with your online listing. For this reason, it’s essential to have professional photographs that maximize the potential of your property.

We can offer you staging tips that will help you make your home appealing to a broad range of buyers without a big price tag included. If you prefer, we can get you in touch with a professional stager who can make your home look like a showroom!

📸 Tip 2 – Keep Home Show Ready

Staging your home and getting professional photographs will help you catch the interest of those who are searching online for homes like yours. The effort doesn’t stop there, however, because you want to keep your home show ready.

Create a plan for staying on top of daily clutter and routine cleanings. If you have small children, make a game out of quick clean-up times and store toys that are not normally played with often.

Throughout the course of the sale period, your real estate agent will have open houses and private showings. You want everything to be in the proper place to impress potential buyers.

🖼️ Tip 3 – Depersonalize the House

It’s a good idea to remove personal items from the home before you list the property for sale because you want potential buyers to easily see themselves living in that space. Begin by removing personal photographs, family keepsakes, collections, and anything that could be seen as controversial.

Setting the asking price too high can create a situations where the home stays on the market and needs to be re-listed, but you also want to guard against setting the price too low and losing money on your investment.
