Take these tips into consideration when preparing to sell your home in this market.

Set Your Home Apart

Enhance your home’s aesthetics by adding custom designs and additions including energy-efficient windows, landscaping or a new roof. This will not only add additional value to your home, but also make your home appeal to a wider home-buying audience. Not only should the improvements be practical, but they should also flow with the current theme set in your home.

Clear the Mess

Potential home buyers need to be able to visualize themselves in a home before purchasing it which is why it is important to remove any excess clutter from the property you are preparing to sell. Many home sellers have taken to hiring stagers in order to help them do this. Stagers typically run from a few hundred dollars for a consultation to several thousand dollars. Additionally, you can clear your home yourself by removing family photographs and other personal items, as well as removing furniture in order to make the space look larger.

Entice Buyers With a Better Deal

Besides lowering a home’s asking price, another way to attract buyers to your home is to offer special terms and rates. Offering deals such as paying the full closing costs will entice a buyer to your home. Additionally, most buyers want to close in the shortest amount of time possible, so it is important for you to be able to close on a home within 30 to 60 days in order to lure more buyers toward your home.
