When the time comes to sell your house, it’s tough to know what you can do to make the space more enticing to buyers, especially when you’ve grown so close to it. We can help! Here’s a list of ways to make your house more appealing to buyers.
If you’re like us, when something breaks, it’s easy to find a workaround and ignore it. Potential home buyers will instantly spot these minor issues and write off your home without a second thought. Before showing your house, ensure all the little things are squared away so that nothing detracts from the benefits your home offers.
Repaint With Neutral Colors
While your home’s individuality is something you love about it, buyers want to see spaces that they can tailor to their desires. Repainting any uniquely colored rooms with neutral colors will help your home appeal to a wider variety of buyers and avoids the potential for turning some people away. Go for calming earth tones to give your house a soothing feel throughout.
Update Lighting and Fixtures
It’s easy to date a home when the lighting and fixtures scream 70s. Updating your fixtures and lighting doesn’t break the bank and it instantly changes the feeling of your house. Modern homes are brightly lit, so adjust your lighting to fall in line with this trend. Also, show your house during the daytime with your blinds open— natural light makes spaces feel more spacious than they really are.
Pitfalls To Avoid
If you’ve already implemented all these tips but still find that your house leaves buyers wanting, you may have fallen into some of the common challenges that come up when selling a home. A realtor can help you avoid them, but sometimes, these pitfalls are difficult to bypass.
The most common problems are selling during the off-season and setting unrealistic prices. For the first, talk to a realtor about the best time to sell a house. The second requires you to listen to your realtor when they help you set your price range. It’s understandable that you want more for the home you love, but trust them—they want the best price, too!
Now that you know how to make your house more appealing to buyers, touch up your home and get it on the market!
