First Time Home Seller in Vancouver or Tri-Cities? Here are 4 Quick Tips to Help
Get Everything Packed Away Before You Start Showing the House
When people go to look at homes to buy, they want to imagine themselves living in and enjoying the home. Nothing makes this harder to do than when there are belongings cluttering the property. Instead of having your family photos, keepsakes, clothes, and belongings lying about – pack them up and move them into storage in anticipation of your impending move. This will go a long way to making your house feel bigger, more open, and more inviting to those who come to view it. Last but not least, this is a great way to get started on packing and moving before it comes time to do it all.
If Someone Wants to See It, Show The House!
There is a bit of a hesitancy to letting strangers wander through your home – we get that. But you need to realize that people want to see a home before they make an offer on it. It’s going to be hard to get offers without letting people see your home. The more you let see it, the greater your chance of getting an offer. If you’ve taken the time to get your belongings all packed away and/or moved out – showing on short notice should be easy to do. Remember, an open house is only one way to generate interest, but a direct showing can be much more persuasive, so don’t miss out when someone wants this.
Make Sure You List at the Right Price
We understand that you want to get as much as you can for your house. However, many first-time sellers are overly ambitious about what they can hope to get out of their home. Do yourself a big favor and make sure you have your house priced correctly when it hits the market the first time. If you put it up too high and have to drop the price to attract buyers, this can make people start to think perhaps there is something wrong with the property or the deal you are offering. This can end up making your house far more difficult to sell and severely reduce the amount you can expect to end up with after all fees and costs are paid.
Never Forget that a Picture is Worth 1000 Words
One of the best things you can do is to make sure you take great pictures of your home to include with your listing and ads. If your ads don’t have photographs or the pictures you have are bad, you’re going to have a much more difficult time attracting the kind of buyer you are looking for. The amount of time you have to capture someone’s attention is just seconds, so you need to make sure your pictures are fantastic so they do just that: instantly grab the attention of your potential buyer. Make sure you clean and arrange things before taking photos. Consider doing this after moving out some or all of your belongings so that they are less cluttered and feature the home more than your belongings. Want to take it one step further?
