Tricks Realtors Use To Sell A Home Quickly
If you have tried selling a home you would know that it is not an easy task but realtors keep selling homes by the dozen and keep doing so day in and day out, month after month and year after year. So how do they accomplish this and if they do so can we also do it? The answer is yes, we can do it too but we need to use the same tricks that realtors use to sell homes quickly. The tricks that realtors use normally are:
- These are not actually tricks but mostly common sense. Realtors ask the home owners to make their homes presentable. It is the most natural thing to do but most of us do not even think about it because in our minds we think that our homes are the best and we feel that the prospective buyer should be proud that he is buying such a home. This perspective of a seller changes when the realtors make them understand the value of making their homes presentable.
- To make the home presentable the realtor almost always asks the seller to make the exteriors attractive. This can be easily achieved. All that needs to be done is to clean the exteriors or paint if necessary. Also the lawn should be mowed and made to look attractive. The garage doors should be painted. The mailbox cleaned etc.
- The living room is the room that contains the furniture, the memorabilia, the photographs, the paintings etc. All these make the living room great, but it is great for you. The memorabilia, the photographs, the paintings, the furniture does not mean anything to the prospective buyer. For the buyer it mostly seems like clutter. They cannot understand the meaning of the furniture and why it holds value. They cannot understand that it was the first couch you bought or the memories associated with it. So rent storage units London and place your things there. A bare living room may not look great but it will look spacious and buyers like to buy homes that have a lot of space. Also keep the windows open to let in air and natural light which is important.
- The seller usually feels that the kitchen is fine and no improvement is required. Realtors do not ask you to make any improvements, they only ask you to ensure that the kitchen appliances are serviced and in working condition. Additionally they say that faucets should not be dripping, tiles should not be broken etc.
