Mistakes To Avoid When You Wish To Sell Your House

You may want to sell your house for a number of reasons, it could be due to a cash crunch, it could be due to moving to a bigger and better house, it could be due to your moving out of the city and so on. The reason does not matter, what matters is selling your home quickly. When you are in the market the rates automatically come down. The prospective buyers will always try to bargain and reduce the price as much as possible. They will find faults with the home; they will inflate the prices of future repairs and ask you to reduce your asking price.
The biggest mistake that you can do is to give the buyer a chance to bargain by not setting right small issues. Take for example the kitchen faucet, it should not drip, you can change it yourself and it will not cost much but if it drips while the buyer is around the buyer will tell you that the faucet needs to be changed, he or she has to get a plumber to rectify it etc. They will then go on to speak about the cost involved, usually inflated and then they will ask you to reduce the price that you want for the home. Never give them this opportunity. Go around the house like a buyer and find faults, small and big. Make a list of all of them. Then rectify each fault. It won’t cost much but you will be able to drive up your asking price.

Next is to keep your home clutter free. You may like an extra bean bag in the living room but what you need to remember is that it takes up space and when a buyer is around they need to see space. They need to see a lot of space; they should be able to move around freely. If they see a lot of things lying around, closing the sale can be tough. What I did when I was on the lookout for buyers to buy my house was to rent storage units near me and place a lot of things there. This also made the house look larger and I was able to sell my house.

Paint, paint and paint some more. A fresh coat of paint makes the house look good. Do not opt for dark colours; opt for colours that are vibrant, colours that enhance the mood. Do not forget to paint the doors, the garage door included.

Hire a cleaning expert and get the house deep cleaned. You will be amazed to see the differrence when the cleaning company finishes the work, the house will look very clean.
