Increasing the Chances of Selling Your Home

by RainF 21. June 2013 05:33

So you’ve spend the last few months remodeling your home. It’s modern and everything looks great! However, you still are trying to find ways to help increase the likelihood that it will sell quickly when you place it on the market. While certain renovations are going to require more work and financial commitment than others, there are a few you can make to speed up the time it takes for that sign out front to go from “For Sale” to “Sold.”

Make Your Home Show Room Ready

Picture yourself looking at two of the same product; the first one is pristine and looks amazing, the second one functions perfectly normal, but it doesn’t look as nice as the first one. If you were a buyer, which one would you buy? The same principle applies when trying to showcase your home. Do some work and have the exterior and interior of the home looking like a million bucks!

When it comes to exterior cleaning, make sure to wash the windows, power wash the exterior, apply a fresh coat of paint (if needed) and clear out those gutters. You can probably accomplish this all in one weekend, but the more help you have, the better.

For the interior of the home, remove any clutter or mess. Aside from not looking as tidy, it can make your rooms look smaller. Also steam clean your carpets or polish any wood flooring so it doesn’t look too worn. Make sure to dust, deep clean your grout, and apply a fresh coat of paint to any dingy walls that need some TLC. Also make the inside of your home smell fresh with some air freshener or candles.

Improve That WOW factor

Curb appeal is huge when it comes to selling your home. One way to increase the outdoor wow factor is to make sure your yard is well manicured. If you have the budget to do so, you should also add a feature that enhances the overall function and feel of the home. Two great additions to the home would be a backyard deck or sitting area or a garage if your current home doesn’t have one.

A backyard deck not only gives you a quiet space to enjoy your yard, but it is also amazing for hosting parties or gatherings. Having the ability to host people outside and inside will make it feel that your home is bigger than it really is.

For garages, we offer a multitude of building choices to help fit your needs. Generally, we’ve seen adding garages to homes that don’t have one is beneficial not only because it gives homeowners some additional storage space outside the home, but it also allows homeowners to store their vehicles away from the elements. Plus, there’s an added safety that comes with storing a car inside a garage as opposed to leaving it uncovered in a driveway.

Being Green Helps Increase Value

By having energy saving appliances and functionality in your home, you can let prospective homebuyers know that these options can allow them to save money for months to come. A few suggestions for some energy saving features to include in your home include dimmer switches that allow you control the level of light used in a room and replacing all your appliances with energy saving appliances. Upgrading appliance will not only help prospective homeowners save on their energy bills each month, but it will also look nicer than having potentially outdated appliances throughout your home.

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Have reference letters ready. A lot of people simply say that they have references available, but a smarter idea is to have reference letters right there with you. That way, the interviewer doesn't have to play phone tag with your references, and can read immediately how great of a candidate you are.

Aim to impress.  While you do not want to push it too far, you do want to stand out from the crowd.  Work to do everything the best that you can and go out of your way to think ahead.  The attention to detail will get you noticed as an asset very quickly.

Take good care of yourself so that you remain as healthy as possible.  People that use all of their sick days are frowned upon and are usually passed up when it comes to promotions.  Take control of the situation by eating a well-balanced diet and using proper hygiene.  Your career depends on it.

Have some ideas ready during the interview. You should be able to immediately tell your interviewer what you can bring to the company and what you would do immediately upon your hire. Help the interviewer to see you in the position by painting a nice picture of what that would be like.
