Planning to Sell Your House? Get It Ready by Taking These 3 Steps

July 08, 2014

Selling your property and finding an interested buyer aren't exactly easy nowadays. For one thing, you have to compete with other homeowners who are also putting their house on the market. You also need to face picky buyers who are holding on to their hard-earned money and looking for the best possible deal.

Fortunately, there are several things you can do to overcome these challenges, and these include improving your home and making it more attractive and appealing. By taking these steps, you can easily make your property stand out from the crowd and grab the attention of house hunters.

Don't know where to begin? You can start by using these strategies:

Finding ways to create more space

It's hard to fall in love with a home that's too crowded with furnishings and doesn't even have room for foot traffic. So, if you notice your house has become too cramped for comfort, take some steps to get rid of the clutter and make it appear large and airy.

A good time to get rid of the clutter in your home is just before you have it professionally cleaned by a reputable service provider. Showpiece Services - commercial cleaners Sydney are an excellent choice as they have an outstanding reputation across the city.

One thing you can do is to reduce the number of furniture in your bedroom, living room and dining area. By doing this, you can make your home seem sleeker and more expansive and ensure it's appealing to house hunters. You can also create plenty of space for potential buyers to move around when they'd view your property.

But does this mean you should just throw away your extra furnishings? Not really. After all, you can always rent a self storage unit in Perth (or wherever you're located) and place your unused chairs, tables and bookshelves in it. This way, you can keep your furniture out of the way while you're taking viewings but still ensure they're safe from burglars and harsh weather.

Depersonalising your house

You don't want prospective buyers to ask, “What type of people live in this property?”; instead, you want them to ponder, “What kind of life will I live if I buy this place and make it my home?” Your potential clients should be able to imagine themselves living in your house and enjoying a happy life.

To achieve this goal, make sure to remove any trace of you from your property. This might seem drastic and can be a bit depressing (especially if you're still in love with your house), but it's an important step to take if you want to sell your place quickly.

You can start by removing your personal photographs and/or your children's drawings from the walls and replacing them with neutral artwork (or even leaving the space blank). Take out the bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash from your bathroom as well as the mountains of makeup on your dressing table. Don't worry since you can keep all of these in your self storage unit in Perth.

And don't forget to have your home professionally cleaned either, as this makes a huge difference to the impression that prospective buyers will take from their first visit. Carpet Cleaning in Melbourne by Crown Cleaning is an excellent choice, as spotless carpets can aid you in making a great impression.

Enhancing your property's kerb appeal

First impressions always last. No matter how pretty your bedroom or living room is, potential buyers won't be convinced to purchase your property if your garden is crawling with overgrown weeds and looks like a small rainforest.

So, as soon as possible, find ways to improve your home's kerb appeal. If your fence looks the worse for wear, for instance, give us a call here at D&G Fencing. We specialise in repairing and renovating fence panels and posts and can give your structure a new lease of life. We can also assist you in improving your sheds, gates, trellis and decking and ensure your entire garden will look fabulous.

Keep these tips in mind to prep your home for sale and catch the eyes of potential buyers. If the sale goes through, be sure to contact CSS Homeward Bound for professional home moving services.
