Selling your Stephenville, Texas home can be quite the task. From making any necessary repairs and renovations to putting the home on the market and showing it, selling a home is no easy feat. However, there are some steps you can take to make sure that your home is in the best condition for selling that it possibly can be so that you can avoid further stress and headaches.
If you have crafted your Stephenville home into a bohemian paradise with bright, bold colored walls, you may want to consider painting them in calmer, more neutral tones before putting it on the market, according to MSN Real Estate. Bold colors can overwhelm potential buyers. Also, neutral colors can create a more blank canvas for buyers so that they can envision themselves decorating the home.
De-cluttering is one of the most important steps in selling your home. If there is furniture and children’s toys everywhere, the place is going to seem very lived-in and not move-in ready. Getting all of the extra and unnecessary pieces out of your house creates a space where more imagination can come into play for the buyer. Part of de-cluttering is removing your prized trophies from the shelves and family photos from the walls. Home buyers don’t want to walk in the door and see someone else’s family, as lovely as they may be.
An often-overlooked aspect of the home is the walls. After taking out all of the necessary furniture and removing all of the pictures from the walls, you’re probably going to find a few more knicks and scratches than you anticipated. Make sure to patch these up and put a fresh coat of paint over them before showing your house. Having a potential home buyer point out a hole in the wall you didn’t notice can be an extremely embarrassing situation for anyone.
