Every home seller has one thing in common; each wants to sell their home quickly and for the most profit. When you choose the “right Realtor”, they will assist with cutting edge marketing, professional photography & video and aggressive negotiation. In addition to that, there are things you can do when preparing to sell your home that will make it stand out among the competition.
Buyers will choose the best house in their price range. You will want to make sure your home stands out. Because most buyers do not wish to invest additional money or time to fix up a home, they will want a home to be in move-in condition so they can start enjoying it right away. When the condition and presentation are superior, it will translate into thousands of dollars and save critical selling time.
The following tips can be used to make your house stand out:
Out With the Clutter
Some of the most important of all the basic preparations is removing clutter. Rooms, closets, and cabinets need to be organized to make your home look inviting and as large as possible. The solution to the clutter is to simply get rid of it. Getting rid of excess items can transform a room. Find storage solutions such as packing non-essential items and storing them in the garage, off-site or donating them.
Make It Inviting
You want potential buyers to envision your house as theirs. Consider the view from each doorway, including your front door. How can you encourage visitors to want to come inside your home and into each room? Pay attention to your curb appeal. Once inside, make sure your furniture arrangement is open and not blocking visitors either physically or visually from entering the room.
If your furniture is in good condition, use what you have. If your furniture is outdated or worn, bring in several nicer used or rented pieces. Repositioning furniture and accent pieces, or even using them in different ways, can give you and updated look.

Focus on Condition and Function
If you are not confident with the condition of the electric, plumbing, or roofing of your home, hire a home inspector. Consider updating your appliances if they are not functioning properly or appear dated. It is better to do repairs and improvements prior to listing your house than to risk losing a Buyer during escrow.
Price Your Home Competitively
Avoid inflating the price of your home thinking it will give you room to negotiate. This will cause your home to sit on the market longer than necessary. You will lose the “just listed” excitement and Buyers will think there is something wrong with your home.
Another mistake a Seller can make is to be more concerned with how much money they have invested in the home or how much money they think they must have in order to buy their next home. Your “ideal” price has little to do with the true market value of your home. It is wise to listen carefully to your Realtor and consider the recent homes sold when pricing your property to sell. This will be the information that an appraiser will use to determine what amount a Buyer can obtain a loan for.
