Pratical tips for selling your property
When it comes the time to sell your property, you only have one chance to make a good first impression!
The tips that follow may help highlight the aesthetic aspect of your property and, at the same time, reduce the time to sell.
The way your property is perceived from the outside is very important. An attractive exterior invites the buyer to visit the interior of the property.
Make sure the lawn is well maintained
In winter, keep some photos of your lawn handy so that visitors can see what it looks like during the summer.
Cleanliness is essential
A cleared entrance and clean windows will make all the difference.
Inside, neatness is the key
Clean up from the basement to the attic, do not forget to also clean the garage, and get rid of all that is useless. Remove old furnitures that obstructs passages or clutter the rooms. Remove as much as possible to prevent visitors from feeling cramped.
Examine each piece of the property to determine where the paint could be refreshed. A freshly repainted property is often more expensive. Be aware that dark colors do not promote sales. It would be important to consider repainting in lighter colours that are more attractive tones.
Carpets conditions can also be a determining factor
If they are not replaced, clean them so that a feeling of freshness emerges from one room to another.
Kitchen and bathroom must be immaculate
Take some time to clean appliances and faucets, as well as the bathtub, toilet and sink. Clear the counters and do not leave dishes in the sink or towels on the edge of the tub. Let the buyer see all the storage possibilities.
Throughout the house, repair flowing faucets, defective handles, drawers or cabinet doors that close tightly, and so on. Replace the light bulbs and electric plates. Most of these small repairs are relatively inexpensive and will positively influence the buyer.
Create an atmosphere
It is essential that your home is well lit. Open the curtains during the day and turn on the lamps at night. If necessary, add lamps in the dark corners.
Make sure your home is well-ventilated
Do not repel the buyer with too strong odors, such as incense or spicy foods.
