Selling a house is sometimes overwhelming and quite tiring. Many people say that selling houses is more like matchmaking. Yes, because there may be people who want to buy it, but the price is less suitable. Or vice versa, when the buyer matches the price of the house but does not match the style of the house. Therefore, it needs a certain way in selling the house.
Here are some tips you can do when you want to sell a house:
Make sure that you maximise the selling price!
When choosing the right price to sell a house, you have to be sure that the price is balanced. Do not let the price be offered too high (this will prevent potential buyers to even look at your house), but not necessarily too low. What you should do is to maximise the selling price following the conditions of your home.
Prospective buyers are usually looking for a house that is in the good proportion to the selling price. Therefore, before giving the right price, you need to do some research about the neighbourhood (look for houses sold around the site, check the quality, location and price).
You can also get the information from neighbours, newspapers, or property sites that usually advertise the home selling. The, look at the lowest and most expensive house prices of the latest sales list in your neighbourhood. You can also see what the current buyer needs, then just set the requested price.
After labelling the house with the right price, make sure the house is neat and tidy.
Before allowing potential buyers to see your home, you should make it as neat as possible. Check this list to guide your effort to clean the house:
- Put fresh flowers in a vase and place them around the house.
- Cut the grass, clean the terrace, and add some potted plants.
- Clean the window.
- If anyone wants to see the house at night, you should turn on the garden lights.
- If the prospective buyer wants to see the house during the day, open the window curtain to allow natural light into your home.
- Do not let your pet wandering around as long as the potential buyers check the condition of the house to be sold.
- Clean all floors, do not let any single garbage scattered on the floor and everywhere.
- Clean the kitchen and toilet.
- Suggested drinks and snacks when there are potential buyers who come, this can add a special attraction for the buyer.
