Real Estate How To: Sell Your Home Faster & For Top Dollar

You’d be surprised how difficult it can be to sell a home without doing the proper due diligence in setting it up for success. Staging and minor home improvement techniques play a MAJOR part in determining if your house will sell in 30 days OR 6 months. There are many MANY suggestions to set up your home for success.  To narrow it down for you, here are a few of my favorite ideas that I’ve come to love over the years and even better, THEY WORK!

  1. Paint all interior walls a neutral color to brighten the home and make it look bigger.
  2. Remove clutter from each room to visually enlarge them.
  3. Replace the carpet if it does not clean up well. (This one is a huge deal)
  4. Open doors to areas you want potential buyers to see such as walk-in closets, pantries, attics, etc.
  5. Microwave a small dish of vanilla twenty minutes before a showing and place it in an out-of-the-way place.
  6. Porches, steps, verandas, balconies, patios, and other extensions of the house should be kept uncluttered, swept, and in good condition.
  7. Expand your counter space by removing small appliances.
  8. The kitchen and bathrooms should always be spotlessly clean.
  9. Use plants in transitional areas for your house.
  10. Create a positive mood.  Turn on all lights, day or night, and install higher wattage light bulbs to show your home brightly.
