So you’re thinking about putting your home Houston, Cypress or Katy Texas 🏠on the market and you wanna make sure you’re going to get the best return on your investment, right? Well, I have some tips for you that should help. I know selling homes is second nature to me as I’ve been doing it 10 plus years, but I get nervous 😬 about selling my personal property all the time. And of course you’re nervous because it is a big deal. Well, let’s talk about curb appeal. This is as important as the first impression your buyer will have when they arrive at your home. The best thing that you can do is either power wash your home or have someone come and do it. Either way, you want to wash away all those years of dirt, off your driveway, off your sidewalk and definitely off your home.
You also wanna pay attention to the front door 🚪, as an agent, it takes a few seconds for me to open a lockbox 🔒. And this gives the buyers a chance to really look at your entryway, while they’re waiting for me to open the door. Take a moment to make sure there isn’t any peeling paint on your door or cobwebs all around the lights. Next, work with your agent on staging your home. 77% of buyers agents say that staging a home makes it easier for buyers to visualize themselves living in your beautiful property. And staging will help your home stand out against the competition, by showcasing the best features of your home to any prospective buyers. Also research shows that professionally stage homes can sell for as much as 10% more than homes that are not staged.
Now, that you’ve gotten your home ready. You want to get professional photos 📷 your home done. According to the National Association of Realtors, 67% of buyers will walk through a home that they saw online. So professional pictures is a must in preparation. Lastly, now that your home is already for those buyers, you must have a showing plan. Buyers and their agents may request a showing of your home at any time, and you must be prepared. Until your home is under c contract, it’s important to be able to leave your home at a moment’s notice. A few things you can do is plan simpler meals for easier cleanup and make plans for maybe some outdoor activities 🏌️♀️🚣🏻♀️⛹🏼♂️🚵🏻♀️🧗 for your family. Also find a place to bring your pets 🐕 🐈 doing showing, maybe a family member will take them in or a good friend will take care of them.
