Home sellers would like to dispose of properties as quick as possible especially if they are planning to relocate to other places. But before selling any of your property, always remember that you need to carefully plan everything before attempting to list your hard earned property at any real estate listing firm. Apart from that, know how to get your buyer’s attention and do something to impress them right from the moment they step in at your doorstep.
Below are some important things you can do to attract home buyers and eventually sell your property.
Disassociate yourself from the house you are selling – First things first, it is best to forget that you own the house from the moment you planned to sell it. This attitude will help you focus on the reality that the house you are selling will no longer be yours and it will be under a new owner very soon. Prepare your mental and emotional state one week before vacating the property so that you will not feel any pain when leaving the property. Don’t look back, instead try to look forward for a brighter future ahead of you. Forget the past and buy a new property and enjoy it with your family.
De-clutter the property – To impress would-be home owners, it is ideal to remove all the junk found in the property you are selling. It is up to you if you will donate all the junks at the local junk shop or throw it away at the nearby dump site. It is your choice as long as you are able to de-clutter your home to impress home buyers. Do this before allowing a show (another real estate term for open house) and do this two hours before the home buyer arrives.
Organize and arrange bedroom closets and cabinets to impress buyers – Before you allow a show (open house) to happen, make it a point to organize and arrange closets in all bedrooms and check if all the kitchen cabinet doors are functioning well. This will give the buyer an impression that you take good care of the property, thus, making them feel good about the property you are selling.
Do repairs to impress home buyers – Make it a point to patch cracks in the walls to hide unnecessary holes and replace busted lights before you allow buyers to come in and have a show. Do check the door knobs of all the doors in the house if all are working properly and if not, do replace them right away. Check faucets as well and if it is leaking, replace it too.
Remove greasy oil in the driveway – Pressure wash the driveway to remove excess oil to make a good impression to the buyer. Remember that an oily driveway is not very pleasing to the eyes so better clean the driveway before making an appointment with the client to see the property you want to sell.
Clean the entire house before allowing home buyers to see the house – Don’t make an appointment without sweeping the floor or even cleaning the glass windows full of dirt. It is your responsibility as the present owner to make sure that the property is in good condition literally and figuratively before putting it at any listing site.
Impress buyers through your attitude during the show (Open house) – Your attitude as a seller can also be a great factor to gain the confidence of the buyer. When you act nicely to them, the tendency is they will give you some sort of respect and eventually lead to buying your property.
