First impression is the key to everything, including selling your home. If you are planning to sell your house or have been going at it for a while now, we recommend that you take a look at these quick tips to improve the first impression of your house and get the “selling energy” going to speed up your sale.
Tip 1: Improve the exterior of your house
Call a friend who has not seen your house for a while and, together, go outside to take a good, hard look at your house, home, condo or duplex from a distance. Write down the first impressions he or she has about your house gained from the first few minutes. Be receptive to their thoughts and opinions and use them to motivate you to improve the presentation of your house. Be mindful of the overall quality of flow and energy of your house, especially the main entrance: Make sure it looks and feels fresh and inviting.
Tip 2: “Green” up your home
Invest in improving the landscaping to increase the value of your property as well as to attract better-quality energy to your home. If you live in condos or a duplex, you can invest in lush, green plants or fresh-cut flowers to freshen up your main entrance. Make sure you have good lighting and tasteful art, as well as strategically-placed mirrors and fresh wall paint to create a sense of spaciousness and elegance that will entice the prospective buyers to fall for your home upon first sight.
Tip 3: Make “less is more” your new motto
Walk around your home and see if you can get rid of any items that may make your home look too personalized. If you have too many items around your house that give off sentimental feelings, this will make it difficult for potential buyers to feel like they belong to your home. You can best showcase your home by using furniture and decorations, but try to avoid leaving the impression of too much “personal touches”.
First impression is the key to a quick and easy sale, but the hard work that goes on in the background is also important. We wish to be part of your success when it comes to selling your real estate and would be glad to take on the grunt work for you.
