8 Fast Steps for Listing Your Home
- by boxwell/September 17, 2020
If you are like most people listing their home on the market, you want the process to be finished as quickly as possible. Unfortunately – especially during this day and age – you may be fighting an uphill battle. If you start this process with a clear plan and strategy in mind, however, you may find that your house sells in the blink of an eye. Read on to discover the top steps for getting your home listed and sold quickly from the experts at Boxwell.
Complete Small Upgrades and Repairs
Since you want to get your home listed as quickly as possible, you don’t have time for major renovation projects. However, you can still complete some easy fixes that would otherwise turn off potential buyers. For example, peeling paint, leaky faucets, and loose tiles may seem minor, but they can easily stand out to buyers that are looking through many listings.
Make a Great First Impression with Curb Appeal
When it comes to homes, many buyers naturally judge the book by its cover. Make your home and yard look its best before taking photos and putting your property on the market. Plant flowers, trim bushes and shrubs, pressure wash the driveway, and take any other measures necessary to make your home warm and inviting.
Give Your Home the Spring Cleaning Treatment
While many dread giving their house a deep clean, it really is one of the easiest and cheapest steps you can take to give your home’s appeal a massive boost. Clean your windows inside and out, polish your countertops, and make your bathroom shine! At the same time, you should take this opportunity to declutter. Donate, sell, or throw away anything you don’t need or want.
Stage Your Home Thoughtfully
The staging process can also be somewhat daunting, as not everyone is an interior decorator. It may be as simple as removing a few pieces of furniture from your house and rearranging the rest to leave space to navigate the rooms easily. Some may balk at spending a lot of money on home décor for home-staging. Once you declutter, though, it’s a simple matter of finding some charming yet neutral themes and decor that can lend your house some personality while emphasizing its potential.
Have a Portable Storage Solution Handy
As you clean, declutter, and stage your home, you might realize that you need space for all your extra stuff! Whether you rent a storage unit in a warehouse or keep it on site, you’ll have easy access to your furniture and other belongings. Then, when you move, you can easily have your things transported to your new residence.
Take Appealing Photos
Last but not least, you need to show off all your hard work. If you can, hire a professional photographer to take perfect shots of your home. If that’s not on the table, you can take great photos yourself – just ensure that they are high-resolution and utilize as much natural light as you can.
