Preparing Home for Sale



Staying in the same home for a lifetime is not everyone's choice. Many people sell their old home and buy a new one due to several reasons like the need for more space or switching to a new job in a different location.

If you have decided to sell your home, the most important aspect you may consider would be - how to sell the house for a good price?

Here are 7 tips you can follow to prepare your home for sale at a better price:

  • Appealing exteriors
  • Clean the house
  • Keep the rooms organized
  • Complete pending repairs
  • Eliminate odors
  • Paint the house
  • Keep all your documents ready

Appealing Exteriors

The first impression that you can give to the buyer is always important. So you should make sure that the exterior look of your house is attractive and pleasing to give the buyer a good impression at the first visit itself.

  • Keep the housing plot neat
  • Paint the compound walls & main gate
  • Add good outdoor lighting
  • Maintain a garden & add more greens
  • Use new and attractive doormats

All these can be done to attract prospective buyers who are looking for a ready-to-move-in property which is visually appealing.

Clean the house

Ensure that you take time and thoroughly clean the place or at least spend some money on availing the services of a cleaning crew to ensure that the place looks as good as new. Take special attention to clean the windows, doors, appliances, cupboards, cabinets, etc.

Keep every room organized

It is important to keep the rooms in your house organized. Bedroom closets and storage cabinets can be organized in such a way that it gives the feeling of more space. If you keep the entire house well-organized it will give the buyer a good impression that you are taking good care of the house. Besides that, it will appear more clean and attractive to the buyer.

Complete pending repairs

A prospective buyer will be thoroughly inspecting your house to figure out if it is suitable for his or her family. They would be looking to steal a deal and move in as quickly as possible. This can only be possible if all the essentials like plumbing, electrical and other necessary aspects are working in top-notch condition. Make a dedicated effort to fix all the existing issues in this regard before posting the ad.

Eliminate bad odours

Bad odour is not a good impression since the buyer will be looking for a well-maintained and pleasing home to live in. Try and get a bit of nature into your house by introducing plants or freshly cut flowers and keep all the windows in the room open for that burst of fresh air. You can also use room freshers to eliminate unpleasant odours.

Paint the house

If there is enough budget, you can consider repainting the entire house. Repainting the house will give it a more fresh and clean appearance which will attract the buyer even more. You can consult a good interior designer to check the latest colour trends and ideas before painting the interiors.

Keep all your documents ready

Keep all the property-related documents ready to be legally transferred to the new owner. Complete all the legal formalities in advance so that both the seller and buyer can save so much time and effort while transferring the ownership of the property.

If you are in the market to sell your property, make sure that you follow the above-mentioned factors before even considering to post a home for sale ad. Ensure that you do your best to answer all the queries a prospect might have about your property. Have regular follow-ups with all the prospects who have shown interest in buying your property and keep a level of engagement active.
