Preparing your home for a ‘view’ or a showing is important so make your house look as impressive as it can. If the appearance of your property is not good, no one will even take a look at your home. Starting from your front yard up to kitchen, your property should be well maintained as possible. Do take time to paint window and replace windows screens, it counts. Spending money on paint will not be as much when the house is bought, so take a second thought on doing this to your house. It might help as it will improve the color and the ambiance.

Remember that first impression is very important; it leaves a trace on a person’s mind. The nightmare that we avoid is that a potential buyer seeing a dirty kitchen, so make sure you leave it clean and tidy. Leave the cupboards and cabinets blank as possible. People will need to see what the property would look like if they live there. Update your kitchen, if necessary, mothers love kitchen, so it should be presentable on the least. Neutralize rooms with a cream or white paint. Buyers will want to see on how will they make improvements or personalize the house if they choose to buy it. Get rid of all personal items like frames and family photos. Make it look like you have already packed your things and you are ready to leave or you can leave it empty instead.

Don’t forget the garden, if you have one. It can be often the factor the house will be sold, we’ll you don’t need to get the best landscape person for that. Hire a gardener if a must or start doing all the garden chores yourself, if money is the issue. It’s wise and thrifty and might help you a bit to be in shape.

Pricing is important, it should be realistic of course, ask for a Realtor’s advice. Look at other properties in your area. Lower your expectations if you want a quick sale of your property set an appointment or make a phone call with a Real Estate agent. Compare your property with other properties same as yours, most people do that.

We are on the age of computers and advance technology now. Most people today have access to the internet. Take that as an advantage to promote your house, use Facebook or Twitter. Take best quality pictures of your property. Consider proper lighting in taking pictures, as we do on our selfies, this adds some quality and elegance. Make them look wide, bright and inviting. If you prefer to hire a real estate agent, remember to trust and know how the agent works. May it be a referral from, friends or family member.  Make research, visit websites and interview people you know who has experience on selling or buying houses, I’m sure you’ll get a lot of them.
