If your house isn’t selling, don’t despair; there are steps you can take to improve your home’s value, visibility, and appeal. Follow these tips!
- Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal
If your house is on the market and you want to make sure potential buyers have the best possible reaction, keep the first impression at the top of the list. To accomplish this, take time to pick out the front and backyard items to help make your home appear as if it were ready to move into that very same day.
Try a quick project to spruce up the yard. If there’s a garden area, use flower boxes to display herbs or pea gravel to highlight a flower bed. If there’s a deck or patio area, add some attractive seating or a nice fountain. For the front door, consider changing the knobs or the hardware on your door or take a painting class and do a limited amount of touch-ups.
There are many inexpensive projects you can do in your yard to make it pop. Just as you can paint a house that needs repair, you can repaint the sides of your house that needs a little TLC. Repainting the outside of your house can increase its curb appeal; take care to match the exterior color scheme with the interior design. The outside of your home can make or break a sale.
- Redesign the Interior Space
Make your home shine with an interior redesign. Filling up your home with new furniture, art, and decor is a good way to raise the home’s overall appeal. Clean and organize the interior, remove any unsightly items or junk, and pack away items that do not belong there. Updating and replacing the lighting is also a great way to make a big impact. Consider incorporating a simple and contemporary design as this style is generally the easiest to achieve on a budget.
When you are ready to stage your home for potential buyers, it may be a good idea to take a “vacation” to keep everything in pristine condition. If you choose to do this, ensure that your open house only lasts for a limited time, and do your best to fill your viewing schedule. It may seem odd to limit the number of visitors. In general, however, only interested buyers will want to see the interior. If your house isn’t selling with such appointments, you may have a pricing issue (getting an appraisal is key to avoiding this).
Lower Your Asking Price
If your house isn’t selling, you may want to lower your asking price to raise your chances of selling. Lowering your asking price may feel like giving up, but it will almost always get your home sold faster. Keep in mind that selling your home is a numbers game and a price drop won’t help your cause unless it’s accompanied by lots of other marketing. A buyer is going to evaluate your home based on its value, location, cleanliness, and square footage — not your lowered asking price.
