Have your home professionally cleaned before viewings begin.

One thing that appeals hugely to potential home buyers is a beautifully clean space. Viewing a home is all about seeing the prospects in the place - can they envision themselves living there? Is the place immediately appealing the moment you walk in the front door? 

A spotlessly clean home can really stand out for viewers, because it will make the home seem newer, more beautiful and more spacious too. 

This tip is especially helpful if you are holding open-house events - in these events, many people arrive at the home and view it on the same day. Investing in professional cleaning is advised in these instances - it will instantly raise the profile of your home.

Make small improvements to the home before it is listed.

Anticipating the needs of your buyer is crucial if you want to close a sale quickly. Making small improvements to the interior and exterior appearance of your home can be a game-changer; these don’t need to be extremely costly, either!

Some useful improvements to make include:

  • Painting over chipped, stained or worn paintwork in the interior of the home.
  • Pressure-washing the outside of the home to remove mold, dirt and pollution staining.
  • Removing excess clutter from the home itself, to provide a more attractive interior setup.
  • Clearing and neatening backyards and front porches/yards to ensure a good first impression.

These simple improvements can transform the experience of a potential buyer when they first view your home, enabling you to secure a deal rapidly.

Present the home in a neutral fashion

Lastly, presenting your home in a neutral fashion is bound to get good results. If you have quite an “out-there” personal taste, it can be easy to scare off buyers if your home is presented in a very niche style that doesn’t suit everyone.

By presenting your home neutrally, as a place where anyone could live, not just you, you are putting your best foot forward when it comes to attracting buyers.
