6 Home Selling tips

 Home selling advice

Here are 6 home selling videos. Sometimes home sellers do not see what I see with buyers. I know what turns off buyers. I have seen home owners prepare their home to sell and get top dollar and I have other sellers that did not want to do anything. They got less than they could of but it was their choice. Sometimes it does not pay to do much because there is way too much to do. Hopefully this article and these videos should give you an idea of what to do or what not to do when selling your home. My goal is to help you get the most money for your home.  Sometimes it is the little things that do not cost a lot of money to help make your sell for more.  I can tell you what you should do or what you should not do. Sometimes you will never get the return on your money on improvements. Sometimes my clients do not have the time or the money. It boils down to what you want to do and whether you have the time to implement the suggestions.

If you going to sell your home let me explain a few things that may not occur to you.

Selling a home is like all sales.  The goal is to get the product, your home in front of as many buyers as possible.  Just because you have a better mouse trap or a better salsa does not mean that you are going to make millions.  It’s about getting the mouse trap or salsa and the information about the products out to the potential buyers.  Nobody is going to beat down your door to buy your mouse trap or salsa if you do not promote it.  Even then your mouse trap or salsa may not appeal to all the buyers.  Some buyers may turn up their noses at your product.

Like all sales the more buyers you put your product in front of….. the bigger the likelihood that it will sell. It does not matter whether it is salsa, a mousetrap, or your home.  How that applies to selling your home is that you want your home to appeal to the biggest pool of buyers as possible.  You want your home in the best shape and best showing condition to get more buyers interested.  The more buyers the better the likelihood of selling your home for more money and faster.

Here are six videos on home selling tips.  These tips work whether you are selling a lakefront home or a home off the lake.

Lighting when showing your home

Add more lamps and fixtures as needed.

If your existing lights still aren’t getting the job done, you may need to call for some reinforcements.

  • Bedside lamps, desk lamps and under-cabinet lighting can all add to your overall light profile while also highlighting attractive details, like your backsplash or countertops.
  • Vanity lighting in the bathrooms should be bright and consistent, with no drastic shadows and glare. Adding sconces beside the mirrors may help you achieve this.
  • Attractive table lamps may offer visual interest, as well as much-needed light in a living room, den or game room. No surfaces for lamps? Consider floor lamps.

Before showing it to potential buyers, make sure you’ve optimized your home’s lighting. While often overlooked, a home’s lighting can make a big impact on a buyer’s first impression of a home. And, as anyone who’s sold a home can tell you, first impressions are everything when it comes to getting the right buyer in the door. A home that is well-lit appears warm, inviting and spacious.

Home selling painting tips

Painting your home is probably one of the quickest and easiest ways to add value to your home and get buyers interested. The right color can completely transform the look of a room—it can make the space feel brighter and even make it seem much larger than it really is.

When painting your home before listing it, color is a very important consideration. It’s best to stick with neutrals or softer colors that function as neutrals. If you go with something too bright or bold, it can put people off. It can be hard for people to visualize something different, so they may decide not to put in an offer based on the feeling they get from the colors on the walls. It can also make potential buyers feel like they need to put a lot more work into the home before they can move in, even if it really doesn’t much work at all. So keep it simple when it comes to selecting a paint color.
