Make Your Property Appealing to More Buyers

You decided to put your property on the market. Whether the market is hot or slow, you want to showcase your home to get multiple offers or to get an offer for the best price. Ultimately, buyers dictate the market value of your home because they are the ones purchasing it.

Buyers will put an offer on the home that they can picture themselves in. You want to have it in showroom condition and depersonalized. How can someone picture themselves in a home when there are photos of the current owners and their family? Many buyers have purchased a home without seeing one due to a presentation centre. Those presale developments have well staged showroom homes and buyers are willing to purchase a home they’ve never seen that won’t complete in years just based on location, floorplans, and a show suite.

Here are some tips to help make your property appealing to a larger audience of potential buyers:

  • Take away personalized items. Pictures are a good way to start
  • DECLUTTER, DECLUTTER, DECLUTTER. When a home is cluttered, the buyer may feel like there isn’t enough space and it may feel like an overwhelming environment.
  • Clean out closets and do not overstuff them. Yes, buyers open up closet doors (and refrigerators)
  • Keep it smelling fresh.
  • A coat of paint can freshen up the room. Lighter colours open up the space and use neutral colours to attract more buyers
  • Clean. I’m not talking about just a vacuum and wipe down. A clean tub with cleaned grout, re-caulked joints, no dust on shelves and baseboards, and cleared cobwebs above will go a long way.

The bottom line is you want your home to feel Move-In-Ready. You might as well clean it up and pack things away because you are planning on moving anyway, so get started now.
