7 Things To Do Before Selling Your House

Moving out and selling your house is a big decision, not just for you but also for the person who will buy your home. That is why you need to do a few things before selling your house to make the transaction easier between you and the buyer. Here are seven key suggestions:

1) Make Repairs to the House

You must’ve lived with a few nagging issues around the house—now is the time to fix them. Look for things like missing or broken tiles, cracked windows, squeaky doors, or stained ceilings. Make a list of everything that needs fixing and start repairing those things. A realtor can be quite helpful in letting you decide which ones to tackle first.

2) Create Curb Appeal

Your house needs to make an excellent first impression so that the buyer thinks, "Wow! I can live here," as soon as they set eyes on your property. Ensure your property is tidy and inviting, the lawn is well-trimmed and maintained, and the sidewalks and pathways are clean for buyers and their real estate regents.

3) Declutter and Clean

Next, declutter your home to make your house inviting and livable for everyone. Recycle or shred old paper, donate the books and toys you no longer need, and remove anything that you don’t use on a day-to-day basis—this will make your house look tidy, and more importantly, bigger than it is.

4) Get the House Inspected

Next, you need to hire a home inspector. Yes, the buyer will also get the home inspected, but it gives you more credibility when you tell them that the house has been inspected by a professional. The inspector will also point out things that need fixing, leaving fewer chances of negotiation for the buyer.

5) Prepare the Paperwork

The better prepared you are with the paperwork, the easier the house sale transaction. The paperwork you need to prepare includes the deed, homeowner’s insurance information, mortgage information, tax statements, warranties, purchase agreement, title report, etc. Chris Low Realtor - a leading team of real estate agents - can help you with this.  

6) Add Fresh Flowers

Scents can make or break the feel of your house. You can also add fresh flowers to your home to make it look and feel inviting, and more importantly, it will make the house smell terrific. If flowers are too much, you can simply get scented candles or air freshener sprays. 

7) Check the Lights

Lastly, check all the lights. Ensure that your home is well lit and all the lights are working. If you have burnt-out bulbs or flickering lights anywhere, even in the garage, change them before you invite any buyers. You can also go further and upgrade your lights to LEDs if you haven’t already, as they are great value propositions to homes nowadays.

There’s a lot more that needs to be done when you want to sell your house, but we can take care of that with our real estate agent services. Contact Chris Low Realtor to know more about real estate solutions.

5 Marketing Strategies You Need to Sell Your House

Selling your house is exciting but often a long and challenging process. And marketing it is another ballgame altogether. But it need not be so tough, right? To make the marketing process easier for your house, here are the best strategies you can use to ensure you get a buyer as soon as possible.

1) Use the Right Photos

Most homebuyers begin their home search online and they judge every prospect by its pictures. So you need to upload excellent photos to pique their interest. Your images should not only be pleasing, but they should also give a good view of your home. Here are some tips to click the right photos of your home:

  • Photograph the front of the house without any vehicles or other things that obstruct the view
  • Click the exteriors from various different angles while highlighting the space and surroundings
  • Take photographs of every room with the drapes and blinds open
  • Ensure the pictures are of high resolution with good lighting

2) Post a Signage Outfront

When you want to sell your house, signages encourage the buyers to contact you as soon as they see the sign outside your home. You need to place a well-designed signage, though. Check with your homeowner’s association first as some of them do not allow real estate signs. You can even try talking to a neighbour whose house is located at an intersection, asking for permission to put a sign in their lawn with an arrow pointing towards yours.

3) Open Houses

You may hear people saying open houses are too old-school and not suitable for every home, but the only way to know is to try. If your house is located at the right location, buyers will swarm in, and you will be able to sell the house quickly. Let people know about the open house via newspaper listings or post it in the local social media groups.

4) Don’t Forget the MLS

Multiple Listing Services is one of the most effective ways to market your property, so use it. Listing your house on local MLS really gives your house an immense reach, making it easy for the buyers to find your home and contact you.

5) Host Agent Tours

If you want to draw agents to your home, since many buyers are represented by their agents, you can host agent tours. Here, agents will come to check out your property. The benefit with this when you sell your house is that the more the agent lingers in your home, the more details they will remember and later describe to their buyer. Trust us, sandwiches and a glass of water suffice for most agent tours.
