5 Steps to Make Your Home More Appealing to Buyers

The key to getting ahead is making use of what you have in your home. You don't need to have the prettiest home in the block to sell, just the right marketing tools!


1. Price your home right

One of the most important decisions you have to make in selling your home is its price.

No matter how stunning your home is, if it’s overpriced, it will stay on the market longer.

Get your price right, and you’ll have more potential buyers flocking to your door.


2. Get help from a pro

One essential thing in home selling is working with the right real estate agent who will represent you, provide suggestions on staging, find the best photographer to take amazing photos of your home and who’ll manage the marketing for your home so the best information can reach the most homebuyers.

A competent real estate agent like me, Allison Jensen, can do the work for you more efficiently in less time.


3. Boost your home’s curb appeal

3. Boost your home’s curb appeal

Curb appeal holds the buyer's interest which will lead him through the front door, so make your home’s curb appeal as enticing as possible.

Don’t just clean the front lawn and garden. Mow the lawn.

Add mulch and reseed for a greener grass.

Add a pop of color by planting flowers.

Trim the dead branches off the trees, if you have trees in your front lawn.

Power wash the siding and walkways.

Wash the windows.

In short, go over every detail of your curb appeal and work on it.

Here’s a great tip: Take a good look at your home from the street, and try to look at it from a buyer’s perspective. Do this and you will notice things about your home’s curb appeal that you have never noticed before.


4. Declutter and depersonalize your home

For many first time home sellers, it can be hard to let go of things because they have an emotional attachment to it.

I get it. If this is you, start organizing now, before you actually list your home.

Put things into storage, and throw or give away things that have little or no meaning to you.

Removing half of your things before the actual selling process will make it easier for you to clear out and make the home look more organized.

Decluttering will also make the rooms more spacious and bright, lending a welcoming appeal.


5. Use accessories and decor sparingly

nterior staging is important. Minimalism is best when it comes to interior staging.

As much as you love your wall hangings and decor, you want very little on the wall, because you want the potential buyer to visualize the room as his or her own.
