Everyone wants change when they move into another house. Not meaning that it shouldn’t be homely but it shouldn’t be an exact replica of what they just came from either. Therefore, when a person is set on selling their house they should draw up marketability plans.
Spruce it up. If you don’t give, there’s no way you’re getting back benefits. Your buyer must achieve a sense of satisfaction and consider what they’re getting a worthy investment. For that you have to give your house a new feel, a place which seems good enough a new life in.
Emotions make houses homes. It is common to see ones that have been named according to surroundings or have numbers and street addresses combined for the famous feel. A house becomes a home and part of a family when it carries names like Little Oak Place, Eagle’s Nest etc.
If you’re overly attached to the house you are going to sell it is best to curb your feelings. Strangers examining it may not say the best things and you do not want any negative feelings towards your potential buyers.
It is a smart idea to make your house seem warm and welcoming but at the same time you must never over-do it. Make sure that too many pictures do not keep new people from relating to your house.
Kleptomaniacs are very common visitors when it comes to houses for sale. Make sure you put away and/or pack items of value. This also avoids potential breakage and lack of your family will help strangers in imagining your house with theirs.
If you want a higher price make sure your house is clean. The family buying may be used to stains and smells but they’re best avoided. Some shine and polish wouldn’t be bad either.
It might happen that in the end your house actually looks so good, that you don’t want to let it go at all. If not, then you’ll still get a much higher price than you initially would.
