Prepare Your Home For Sale

 

  • Tidy up around the grounds – porches – garage. Keep lawn trimmed and edged. Make sure that your yard is clean of refuse.
  • Your front door gives a vital first impression while a Realtor® and prospect wait for you to answer the bell. Be sure it is scrubbed clean.
  • Dress up windows in freshly – laundered curtains.
  • If any decoration is needed (especially kitchen), do it now! $20.00 worth of paint may balance $100 in price cut. Bathrooms help sell homes. Make this room sparkle.
  • Keep all steps clear of hazards.
  • Don’t forget to have all light sockets filled with bulbs. Illumination is like a welcome sign. The potential buyers will feel glowing warmth when you turn on all your lights for an evening inspection.
  • Wash dishes, put away clothes, straighten up newspapers, etc.
  • Make up beds with attractive spreads.
  • Keep pets out of the way when showing. (One type of prospect is annoyed – the other gets attention diverted.)
  • Avoid having too many people present during inspections. The potential buyer will feel like an intruder and will hurry through the house. Do not allow children to tag along on the visitor’s tour.
  • Leave showing up to the salesperson. It’s their business to sell. The salesperson knows the buyer’s requirements and can best emphasize the features of your home. You will be pulled in if needed.
  • Don’t discuss anything concerning the sale with the customer. Let the Realtor® discuss price, terms, possession and other factors with the customer. They are eminently qualified to bring negotiations to a favorable conclusion.
  • Never try to sell furniture to a customer before a deal is complete.
  • We live in our homes a certain way, we market them in another. Just as builders recognize that a finished, clean and pleasantly decorated model home enables them to enhance the appeal of the homes they are building, “staging” your home to enhance its appeal will give you a competitive edge against all the other homes on the market.
  • Spending $500 in cleaning, painting and making minor repairs may pay you back $5,000 in a higher sales price and result in a faster sale.
  • HausAngeles knows which items are cost effective and will pay you back many times over in buyer interest. After you agree to list your home with HausAngeles, they will detail which simple, easy steps you can take to enhance your home’s appeal.
  • HausAngeles is responsible for marketing your home. You are in control of the marketability of your home.
