Evans, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/24/2014 -- Most homeowners cannot afford to have their homes linger on the market for months at a time. Yet many may find themselves in that predicament after realizing that making a home stand out among thousands is not easy. Fortunately, Prudential Beazley Real Estate elected to help home sellers with the process by publishing a how-to guide for selling a home fast. With a little elbow grease and ingenuity, home sellers can sell their home faster that they can say “sale pending”.
The most important factor when preparing a home for staging is that its appearance appeals to potential buyers. Homebuyers want a clean, well-maintained home from the inside out, so Prudential Beazley Real Estate suggests starting with the exterior. If there is a garden, homeowners should pull the weeds, add fresh mulch, and trim the hedges. They should also give the doors and window frames a fresh coat of paint if necessary, and hang baskets of flowers or window boxes.
In the interior of the home, homeowners should try to create a blank canvas. An interior that is cluttered with a seller’s personality will likely discourage buyers. Prudential Beazley Real Estate suggests painting over bright colored walls with creams and whites and removing any personal collections or photos. In addition, they should take the time to replace ripped window screens, clean the carpets and drapes, mend any broken drawers, and clean out the cabinets. Small improvements here and there will go a long way.
The next step is to price the home right. While sellers may value their home above market value, it is important for them not to ask for too much, especially if they want to sell quick. To get a good idea of what a home should sell for, Prudential Beazley Real Estate suggests taking a look at other similar homes in the area, or getting the opinion of a reputable real estate professional, such as the ones at Prudential Beazley Real Estate.
The third step is to go the extra mile. Putting just a little bit more effort into selling a home than the competition could be what makes the difference. One suggestion for going the extra mile is to stage the home like a professional. Home sellers should put on neutral music like classical or jazz, burn scented candles, and offer freshly baked cookies. They could also decide to get a presale inspection. Although rare, these inspections are an excellent way to show hesitant buyers that a home is in top condition.
Acquiring a top-rated real estate agent is the final step to selling a home fast. Home sellers should seek out an agent who is honest, reputable, and personable.
