These five tips may help you get a quicker sale and a higher price
In case you haven’t noticed, the real estate market in Fort Lauderdale is as hot as the weather. People from out of town are moving in, young families are looking for bigger places, older folks are downsizing, and almost every other aspect of housing is trending.
This is why if you’re planning to sell, you’re going to have a lot of competition. Chances are there are houses in your neighborhood – and perhaps even on your street – that are already attracting potential buyers.
So, how can you help your residence stand out? There’s one easy solution: Make it shine with the right staging. And sure, you can hire a company to do that for you, but you don’t have to. These very simple ideas are quick and affordable and will do wonders for the appearance of your home.
Get rid of the junk
If you’re like most people, you have a lot of pointless stuff in your house. Throw away or donate what you don’t need and store the rest where people won’t see it. Eliminating clutter will make every room infinitely more spacious. You should also remove any personal items, like family photos. You may have beautiful kids, but people want to envision where they’ll put pictures of their own beautiful kids.
Even if you keep your home clean, give it a good scrubbing from top to bottom before folks come over to see it. Wash all the windows and don’t forget all those nooks and crannies where dust and spider webs like to hide. And if your furniture is looking a little dirty or dingy, clean it up – or throw a cover on that couch – as well.
Don’t just focus on the inside
The interior of your home could look immaculate, but if your curb appeal is lacking, you may have lost a sale even before someone steps inside. Little things like a fresh coat of paint on the front door or a new welcome mat or mailbox can make a world of difference.
Add some mirrors
Mirrors are a decorator’s best friend. Not only do they make small rooms look bigger, they bring in more light when they’re next to or across from a window. Mirrors with ornate frames can also add unique elements to the décor.
Set the scene
Because buyers will be picturing themselves living in your home, you can add a few nice touches to help them with the image. For example, set the dining room table with plates and wineglasses to make it look as though folks will be over any minute for a dinner party. Or, set the kitchen table to look like it’s ready for a family meal.
By applying the above, simple tips, you’ll be amazed at how much different – and better – your home looks, as well as how eager some folks may be to make you an offer. Need more tips or advice on selling your place? Get in touch with No Limit Real Estate at 954.300.2525 today!
