Isn’t it all about finding a realtor and putting your house on the market? Turns out, there’s more than you might think to prepping your house for selling. Each of these secrets will help make your home selling easier.
In a highly-competitive market like Nashville, even implementing a few of these tips can put you ahead of the competition.
Here at Dwell Music City, we are here every step of the way to help you sell as quickly as possible.
You don’t want a buyer to come to your home and find that two out of three lights aren’t working. Make sure the HVAC system works as well. Even if they don’t test everything before they put an offer in, they’ll find out at some point that certain items aren’t working. This can lead to the buyer renegotiating the sell price and possibly to the offer falling through. So save yourself the trouble and fix everything.
While you want your house to sell quickly, you don’t want your home to be on the market longer than it should be. Pricing your house too high will cause it to sit on the market, which causes buyers to wonder what’s wrong with it. Make sure that you work with your agent to make sure your home is priced correctly for the market. Don’t try to guess! In popular markets like Nashville, professional advice is a must. Make your home selling easier and find a solid agent.
Take photographs of the inside and outside of your home while the landscaping still looks really good and green. Don’t wait for the in-between time.
It’s wintertime in Nashville, which means the weather is very rainy. Put floor mats on the entrances of your home so people don’t track water onto your wood, laminate flooring or carpet. Unfortunately, all you need is one showing without mats to make you regret putting your house up in the first place. Make your home selling easier by limiting mud tracked through the house!
Curb appeal is everything. If your house doesn’t look good from the outside, a buyer won’t even consider looking at the interior shots. You cannot make your home selling easier without an attractive exterior.
If you want to go all out, pressure-wash your house, walkways, and driveway, or add a fresh coat of paint to your trim and shutters.
Everything matters — even things as small as the brass on your front door. Polish the kick-plate and doorknob, and clean any cobwebs or bird droppings. Flowers, particularly near the entryway, can make your house feel alive and inviting.
Spring and summer are typically known as the best time to sell your home. However, you should know that increased inventory means spring and summer buyers can afford to be pickier — so make sure your home is in sparkling, come-look-at-me shape.
