Tips for Tulsa home sellers to get it sold
Selling your home can be a very intimidating process. Even if you are not on a timetable to sell, it can be daunting to think about selling your home and ensuring that you make a profit on it so that you walk out of the exchange on top. The longer your home remains on the market the lower the price will likely go on your final sale, so Tulsa home sellers need to take proper steps before listing to maximize their profits. Here are a few ways you can ensure your home sells quickly before you list it. If you need help with anything Call Me
Step Back and Look at Curb Appeal
While it is true that most home’s sell based on what offer inside, you have to get potential buyers into your home to see that. Therefore, curb appeal is vital when it comes to forming positive impressions of a home. Your home has to have positive curb appeal to get people interested in taking a better look. Make sure that all of the landscaping in the front yard is clean and enticing. Additionally, consider having your entire home power washed and get all of the cobwebs and any old unattractive clutter off your porch. Consider adding some annuals or placing out some porch décor to help make your home more appealing. Finally, if there is any junk in your yard remove it and fix any holes in the fencing or any other obvious problem spots.
DeClutter Your Home
Next, you need to start looking around your home and brainstorm how to make the inside more inviting. You want your home to appeal sharp and comfortable so that people can envision easily living in your space. Emptying your home of clutter and knick-knacks makes it easier for people to envision how they would lay out a room. In turn, it will help you sell your home much more quickly. Move from room to room and remove furniture that is not necessary and put away any excessive décor you may have on display. Also, empty out your closets so that only a few remaining items are left inside. You want closets and storage shelves to look roomy and spacious, and having few items in them will certainly give this illusion.
Make Your Home Move-In Ready
Tulsa home sellers that want their home to move quickly usually take some time to update the appearance of their home so that it is move-in ready. This essentially means that a buyer can move in without worrying about any updates immediately. This may mean that you need to repaint rooms in your home or replace the carpet. Even updating the light fixtures in your home or staining the cabinets in your kitchen can quickly update the appearance of a home. These are quick and fairly inexpensive ways to add more appeal to your home. Keep in mind that you want your home to appeal to your buyer, so avoid anything ostentatious and stick to neutrals and classic fixtures.
Clean and Then Clean Again
In order to sell your home quickly you need to make sure that your home is completely spotless. Buyers can quickly be put off by odors or the sight of a dirty window panel or a light fixture covered in spider webs. They want to buy a perfect home, so give them the sight of one from the moment they walk into the home. If you are not a great cleaner, then hire someone who can come clean before showings. Make sure that everything is dusted and the windows are sparkling. Be sure to sweep and vacuum with every showing as well and if possible, have all dishes out of the dishwasher and put away. Buyers will often look over every nook and cranny of a home, so don’t give them anything but perfection.
List Your Home at a Competitive Rate
Finally, Tulsa home sellers need to ensure that they list their home at a competitive price from the moment the home hits the market. It can be tempting to over price your home based on the assumption you can lower it later, but doing so may result in your home sitting on the market for longer than you want. Not only will this mean a slower sale, but it will also mean that your house will get marked as a home that has been on the market forever. Once this happens people start to wonder what must be wrong with it. That is not the impression you want your home to make on buyers who peruse the listings.
Your realtor can help you choose a reasonable listing price based on the comps they compile. They analyze data from local sales and then advise you on what you can reasonably expect to get from your home. Allow them to help you set the price without emotion, and the end result will be a sale that happens sooner instead of later.
