2019 has been a fantastic year in terms of home prices, particularly in North Carolina. It’s a great time to sell your house while interest rates by the Federal Reserve are still relatively lower. If you just bought a house but don’t feel quite at home in it, go ahead and put it on the market.
But if you’re still unsure about whether or not you’re ready to part ways, experts advise striking while the iron is hot. If you’re looking to take advantage of the selling market and want to get the best deal for your home, there are some things you should keep in mind.
Follow these tips to sell your home relatively faster.
When potential buyers visit your home, you should aim to show it to them as a house and not as your own home. To help them visualize it as a place they can eventually live in, you need to take certain measures to stage your home.
Take the following steps:
- Remove any décor that has political and religious affiliations
- Take off personal awards, children’s drawings and even sports memorabilia
- Also take down any family photos and replace them with mainstream art
Increase curb appeal
Invest in some necessary renovations for your home that will make it stand out in your neighborhood.
Get minor landscaping renovations and even something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can add to the curb appeal of your home.
You want to make a good first impression for your buyers when they see your home. It can help turn the decision in your favor.
Make your home accessible
When you put your home on the market, you should expect people to want to visit your home. This needs to be more possible at their convenience and not yours.
Make sure your home is available at all times so that you don’t deter buyers who can’t provide a full day’s notice.
You can even install a lockbox so it’s easy for visitors when you’re not home.
Seek professional services
The best person to be able to guide you with the home selling process is a professional who has seen it all.
A realtor will be able to help you out with the right techniques to help your home sell faster. They are also more knowledgeable about the market conditions and the right price for your home compared to others in the neighborhood.
