Home Sales Tips How to Make Your Central Valley Home Stand Out When You List It


Searching for home sales tips? If so, you've come to the right place!

There's no doubt that the real estate market has changed over the last three months and it's more difficult than ever before for homeowners to get their properties sold but, despite the difficulty, homes are still selling, and you can make your home stand out among others that are for sale on the real estate market when you follow these tips.

Tip #1 – Invest in Curb Appeal

Curb appeal has always been one of the most important parts of selling a home because, it's the first thing that a buyer sees when they drive up to a property, and the quality of the curb appeal either leaves a positive or negative impression of the buyer.

If it's been some time since you've invested in improving the curb appeal of your home, you should take the time to do a complete property cleanup which should include removing dead plants, cutting/shaping plants or trees, planting new drought tolerant plants and power washing the driveway to your home.

Tip #2 – Stage Your Home to Sell

Besides curb appeal improvements, staging a home has always been one of the most effective ways to sell a house fast.

Home staging is important because it helps the buyer to envision themselves living in the home instead of them having to wonder or conceptualize how they'll use the space that the house offers them.

The good news is that home staging is simple and easy for you to do yourself but, you should first start with decluttering your house. This means that you should go room to room in your home, removing the items that do not currently use or haven't used in some time.

The goal of decluttering is to make each room in your house look bigger than it currently is then once the clutter is clear, you should stage the remaining pieces of furniture so that when the potential buyer tours your house, they know exactly how each space in your home can be used.

Tip #3 – Make Simple, But Effective Improvements

Last of all, but most important, another of our home sales tips that you should use is to focus on making simple but effective improvements to your house. This means that you should do things like investing in new knobs and pulls for cabinets and drawers, adding a backsplash behind the stove in your kitchen, cleaning the carpets, replacing tired or worn-out flooring, and painting her home if it's needed.

Yes, it is possible to improve the quality and the look of your home, even if you're on a budget so if your house is in dire need of upgrades, take the time to invest in making simple but effective upgrades to your house because it will only make it more desirable for buyers the next time that they tore it.
