Top 5 things to do to sell your home faster

There are a few very simple things you can do once you list your home for sale to start the momentum forward toward closing: 1. START PACKING! This seems simple but it is also very effective for buyer and seller both. It is important for the sellers who can begin de-cluttering and packing their belongings to move and also for buyers that walk in to the home and see that seller is serious about selling. Leave boxes around as a reminder to pack a little t a time if needed. 2. KEEP HOME SMELLS PLEASANT OR NEUTRAL: This is very important. Buyers respond immediately to smells in the home as they walk through the door. It may be useful to have a friend walk through and let you know what areas of your home may need help with this. 3. CURB APPEAL: Front yard and front door always need to be free of debris and clutter and fresh paint goes a long way. Remember, you only get one chance to make a first impression. 4. LEAVE HOME FOR SHOWINGS: Sometimes sellers think its best to stay in the home to explain features to buyers. The opposite is true. In most cases sellers being present when a buyer is looking at your home makes buyers nervous and unable to freely talk to their agent. 5. KEEP HOME CLEAN & CLUTTER FREE: I know that keeping your home clean is a challenge but it really does make a difference when a buyer walks into a fresh, clean home. You may want to consider hiring help with cleaning while your home is listed. You may also consider “staging” areas that are not frequently used if your hoe is occupied. While there are many more ideas that are useful to consider when marketing and preparing your home for sale, I really do feel these are at the top of the list.
