The process of buying and selling a home or preparing it for new tenants can be crazy and exhausting, but it is inevitable. However, there are ways to get your home ready for the market and expedite the selling process. Here are a couple of tips to get your home ready to sell or rent.
Tip #1 – Declutter all
Preparing a house for display means you need to feature its best assets – that means anything that’s not contributing to make your home look better is contributing to make it look worse.
Clutter can really affect how your house is perceived by your prospects, and especially in those areas of the home to which people tend to pay more attention, such as the kitchen and bathrooms. You have to make sure that everything is looking clean and organized. If you think about it – we spend the majority of our time in the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. Subconsciously, a prospective renter or buyer is going to look at these areas first so it is important to cast a strong first impression.
Tip #2 – Organize your closets
Storage space is one of the most important features buyers or renters look for in a property. Declutter your closets and spend some time organizing so that they look more clean and spacious. If buyers see a crammed up closet, they will automatically think there’s not enough space around the house to store their belongings. Again, it’s a subconscious thing.
Tip #3 – Deep clean your house
No matter how organized and how decluttered your home is, if it’s not clean – and by clean we mean sparkling clean – your house will not look very appealing to buyers or prospective tenants.
A great idea to make your house look more appealing is to carry out a top-to-bottom detailed cleaning – to ensure your home is clean from the inside out and that no detail is missed. This way it will be easier to attract more buyers and close a deal faster.
Remember that when it comes to rent or sell a property, professional house cleaning is one of the keys to success.
