One of the best things about working with us is that we can help you market your property in a way that shows off its unique appeal. If you do want to sell, and if you want to fix up your home before you put it on the market, here are some things to consider.
There are any number of articles that talk about curb appeal, but remember that Smyrna real estate has to keep its appeal long after the potential buyer has gone from the curb to the porch. You’ll want to consider how people move through your house when planning improvements.
For instance, maybe your porch looks great from a distance, but did you consider that it’s one of the places where people touring your home are likely to linger? Whether the Realtor is opening a lockbox or you’re letting them in personally, buyers are going to be on the porch long enough to take a close look before they actually enter the house. This is why it’s important to make sure the porch is maintained, painted and clean. The view from the curb might be the first impression buyers get, but the porch is where they’ll make their first real assessment of the house. Make sure your porch and entryway are spotless and inviting.
Room to Breathe
Even if you have a top-of-the-line HVAC system, never smoke in the house and don’t own any pets, your house will get a bit musty and stuffy over the winter. Be sure to start airing it out regularly as soon as the weather allows. When potential buyers enter your home for the first time, remember that a musty smell is going to make a bad impression, so be sure to keep the space fresh. If that means doing some painting or other maintenance, it may well be worth it.
Have Your Realtor Take a Walkthrough
Because we deal with so many buyers, they know what puts them off. Have us do a thorough tour of your home, because they know how to look for what buyers are most likely to see, both in terms of selling points and deal-quashing flaws. We can give you tips on how to make your Smyrna real estate stand out from other options on the market, and that can help you sell it quickly and for a good price.
