Home for sale board in front of the house

With so many homes on the market today, it’s imperative to give buyers multiple reasons to buy and not a single reason not to. And yes, as a home seller, there are things you can do to ensure “what they remember” are all the positive things your home as to offer.

6 Tips To Make Your Home More Appealing To Buyers
1. Make Repairs

Patch holes and cracks in walls and ceilings. Replace the stained or worn carpet. Fix any code violations.

2. Power Wash Your Home and Deck

The difference a good power wash can make is incredible. It will make your home and deck look fresh and new in the buyer’s eyes.

3. Declutter

Homes filled with furniture nick-knacks consume visual real estate and make it difficult for the buyer to imagine themselves living there. Pack up excess clutter (this will also save time when the home is sold and you are ready to move).

4. Upgrade Dated Fixtures

One of the most common mistakes a home seller will make is not addressing the minor updates that could end up making a world of difference. For example, update light fixtures and faucets. The expense is minimal in comparison to the impact these improvements can have. This is a simple way to give your home a more modern look and feel.

5. Give Your Kitchen a Facelift

Dated kitchens date your home which can cost time on the market. Consider painting the cabinets or possibly even just changing out the hardware to a more modern. The expense is minimal in comparison to the impact these improvements will have.
