5 Important Tips When Selling Your Wayzata Home
The market is said to be going up and that is good news to everyone who wants to sell their house. Use these 5 important tips when selling your home to ensure a reasonable offer in a timely matter.
1) Paint – One of the most inexpensive tips for a homeowner is to invest in paint. A fresh coat on the walls will give your home a quick and easy facelift. Use neutral colors to appeal to a wide range of buyers. It is safe to use off whites, creams and tans.
2) Repair the Little Stuff – The buyers are looking for any reason to save pennies in their pocket. It is wise to make sure all repairs in your home are done before listing the house. The leak in the kitchen sick might cost you a plumper, but a plumper is cheaper than sitting on the market for months on end.
3) De-personalize – It’s hard to de-personalize your home, but it maybe even harder for a buyer to come through and picture themselves living there with all your family photos hanging on the wall. Even if you have staged your house well with personal items buyers could become distracted from the house. Make sure they are looking at the space/yard and not Suzy’s first grade art work.
4)Yard – It’s the first thing Curb appeal is highly important when listing your home for sale. Studies show a buyer will pull up to a house look at the front yard and within 60 seconds they approve or disapprove the house – before getting out of the car! Make sure plants are trimmed, lawn is mowed and add a touch of color with flowers.
5) Be Flexible – You can’t sell your house if you aren’t flexible to the showing times. This is stressful on your day to day life, but if you have staged your home and priced it competitively to the other houses in your area you shouldn’t have to endure showings for very long.
