Selling a home can be stressful; especially if you’re doing it for the very first time. Here are some of our 5 successful tips to getting a home sold almost as soon as it’s put up for sale…!

Make Sure It Looks Welcoming From The Street

Let’s be truthful, we’ve all gone house hunting and made up our mind almost as soon as we saw the house from a distance. Even if we didn’t outright reject it (wanting to give it a fair chance and all that), we still carry in a reserved air with us when we look into a house that has an unimpressive look from the street. To avoid this happening to your home, make sure to take care of your home’s outdoor. Make sure the fences/gate look impressive and secure. If you have a garden, make it look welcoming and easily manageable. Shine up the windows and door knobs so your potential buyers simple cannot wait to have a look inside. Don’t forget to give your roof a little love as well…!

Give Your Home A Coat Of Color To Brighten It Up

This tip is golden, as a fresh coat of paint not only successfully hides imperfections, it also makes your home look fresh and loved. Remember to choose colors that are soothing and neutral so that the colors of the wall don’t scare off your potential buyers. If you don’t have the time to do it yourself, consider getting it done professionally. Choosing professional painters in Hervey Bay might be a little more expensive than doing it yourself. But you don’t have to deal with the mess or take time off from work for this task.

Emphasize And Enhance It’s Expensive And Special Features

If your home has expensive features that you are particularly proud of, make sure to enhance them before showing your home to potential buyers. Having hardwood floors, for example, can be a great value to your home. Getting your floors professionally polished will not only reduce your work, but will also ensure an even polishing. Even something as simple as a middle garden can be shown off as an asset by enhancing it. A few lush plants or a comfortable reading chair is all that is needed to make that space appear desirable and cozy.

Don’t Allow Small Cracks And Leaks Lower Your Rates

Every house has its own share of weaknesses and imperfections. However, home buyers are very reluctant to pay a high price for a house they’ll have to work on after purchasing. Simple things like a broken door bell, a leaking tap or a jammed window can reduce your home’s value, and make potential buyers think twice about purchasing your home. Fix every small imperfection that you find; then invite a friend over and ask them to have a look around, to spot anything that you might have missed.

Make Sure You Hire The Right Real Estate Agent For The Job

Our final tip for you is not about the house itself, but about the real estate agency you use. Make sure to do thorough research on their credibility and talents before agreeing to any deal. It’s best using an agent that has been approved of by a trusted person or loved one. In addition, it’s also best to check out their review online nowadays; angry clients are hardly quiet…!
