4 easy home selling steps

  • “Polish” the front to increase curb appeal.

Paint the front of the house, pull any weeds, plant new flowers if yours are not blooming, and try replacing your house numbers with new modern ones. You don’t need to invest large amounts of money, just some time and elbow grease. Make it look new and cared for.

  • First impressions are lasting impressions so tidy the entrance

How does your front door look? Maybe it could use a fresh coat of paint as well? Consider getting a new doorbell if yours is old fashion or unreliable. If that is not in the budget, then you should at least replace the batteries in the old one. Make sure the front entrance way is not over crowded. Remove any extra pairs of shoes, jackets, or coats.

  • What Is That Smell?

If you have any pets, are smokers, or tend to cook with strong smelling spices, than deodorize your home. Use sprays on your curtains and furniture and clean your carpets. Another little trick is to burn a little incense or put out potpourri. Cinnamon reminds people of home cooking like apple pies or cookies and is a great way to give your home that final touch when showing.

  • Show them their new home, not your old one…

You want to help those visiting your home imagine it as theirs. Try to take down photos of you and your family and replace them with art. If acceptable, consider keeping religious items to as few as possible. In fact, try to keep all decorations to a minimum. Let them imagine their decorations in the areas you left open.

These 4 easy home selling steps can greatly improve the first and lasting impressions of those visiting your house.
