Anyone who wants to sell their home hopes to do this as quickly as possible and for most profitable price. The good luck is never enough, if you want this to happen. If you are selling your home, the first thing you need to do is to prepare it and give it commercial look, sometimes this is more difficult emotionally than a physical effort. Here are some of the most important steps you need to take to attract potential buyers:
Distinguish yourself from the property
Each property brings a sentimental value for the person who lived there. Our home is completely connected with bad and goods moments, but the thing that’s make it real home often is the habit. Distinguish your personality from the rooms and let it live own live, at first start thinking about it like a trade product. Say goodbye to the feelings and let’s move on to the next step.
“Neutralize” your home
Make people, who come to see the property, feel like in their own home. Clear out your personal belongings. Remove your photos and decoration for not distract the potential buyers from the property’s potential. Instead, you can make him use their imagination about how will look at their photos and accessories. Do your best to make the property look as possible more neutral. Move out your favorite furniture before the start of the views, because not all people have the same style, but everyone has their own who will be happy to bring to their new home. If the property needs some renovations, choose neutral colors and free up as much space as possible.
Throw out the useless
We are prone to keep amazing amounts of stuffs. If you haven’t use something more than a year, you probably don’t need it. Sell or donate your stuff and clothes you don’t need. In this way you not will only help for the future move out, but also will help it for the sale. Clear out the cupboards and the drawers, arrange the wardrobe. In case you sell the property furnished, the potential buyers will surely want to look at them- in what condition they are, how deep they are, etc. The well-cleaned and upright cabinets make a good impression about the whole home with the reassurance that there is no problem “under the carpet”.
Save your favorite furniture and stuff
Bring out everything you don’t want to divide and find a space where you can store it until you leave. Тhe new owners wouldn’t buy your home only because of your beautiful bookshelves, the goal is to display it in a state that most closely matches their new home.
Мake a cosmetic repair
the walls, rolling the parquet floor and other small corrections will refresh
the apartment and give it a look of а home waiting for its new habitants. Small things like
dirty walls, scrubbed
floors, squeaking doors, a flowing tap and broken
tile at the bathroom is neither tricky nor costly to repair, but they could
lower the price of the property or drop their potential buyers at the expense
of another home, which is already ready to accommodate them.
Let it be light!
Move aside the curtains or just get rid of them, the future owners certainly have their own opinion about their design. Change the light bulbs if they are faded. You strive to create a good first impression, so show the best of your property. Even subconsciously, the bright and spacious room will make its potential future owners feel more relaxed that they haven’t missed any suspicious detail. But next is the final challenge.
Brushing, cleaning, polishing
It’s not about the weekly dusting and washing the floor. Get rid of all the spots and dirt, even in the small corners in your home that you are used to not notice. Clean the windows to shine, clean the joints and polish all the mirrors and taps. Cleaning is the easiest part of the home preparation for sale but takes a lot of physical effort. If you decide that you don’t have enough time for cleaning all the stuff, you can hire a professional company, but never miss this step.
