Are you worried that your house may not get a buyer? Do you want to fetch some good money from the sale of your home?

With the stiff competition on the market, there are some things you can do to make your house is sold in record time.

Let’s look at some things you can do to prepare your home before putting it on the market.

Thoroughly clean your home

Ensure everything is sparkling clean.  You may require hiring professional cleaners to do this. You may also want to paint a contrasting color on the front door to attract attention.

Make sure special attention is given to the bathrooms and the kitchen. Most buyers prefer these to be in top condition and it can often lead to a quicker sale.

You’ll want to make sure that everyone who walks through your gate admires how neat and clean that home is. You never know who your potential client is. Trim your flowers and mow your lawn.

Don’t forget repairs

This will make the home more appealing to the buyers and you will avoid issues that come up during inspection.

Look out for any broken windows or missing locks and have them replaced. It will also keep you from to negotiating a lower price.

Give the house a new coat of Paint

Fresh paint gives your home a whole new look and a pleasant smell too.  It also gives the impression of a new home. We all love new. It will also look great on photographs.

Remember to play safe and keep the color neutral. You don’t want to turn away customers because they think that the color is distasteful.

Get a professional to photograph your home

Though they come at a price, professional photographers will be worth it in the end. Many buyers are turning to the internet for their search. The more attractive the faster a buyer will find it.

People are using thee internet more and more to judge what to buy and so unique photographs done by a professional will add value to your home and send it to the top of a buyer’s list

Declutter and store

Decluttering a home while still living in it, can be difficult. Most people like to hold on to things that they don’t use anymore. This might be a good time to throw or give away stuff that you don’t need.

Clutter takes up space and makes a place messy. This is not the picture you want to display to the buyers.

Store any extra furniture, assuming you don’t have enough space, you can always rent storage. This will get the stuff out of the way and you will have enough time to sort through them once you are done with the sale.

Organize shoe drawers, cabinets and closets

Buyers need to see that there is enough space for their belongings. Messy drawers and cabinets show the exact opposite. It would be important to have them painted and get new hangers.
