Selling your home? It can be a challenge to promote the sale and choose the right time to sell. Knowing what to fix up around the house can also help the process. Here are five tips that will help your home sale go smoothly.
1) Social media is a perfect place to promote things that people like to talk about and share with others. Post your home sale on Facebook and watch as people pass the news around. For a few dollars more, you can increase the exposure your home sale gets by paying Facebook to boost your post. You'll be able to choose the demographics of who sees the ad, as well as how many people see it and where they need to be in order to see it. In no time, word of your home's sale will be everywhere, resulting in more prospective buyers.
YouTube is another free promotional tool you can use to increase your home sale's exposure. Create a video where you showcase the home's notable features and post it to YouTube. It's free, and if you couple it with social media promotion, it can have a big impact.
2) Sell when the time is right. Spring and Summer are best. According to Trulia, home buying is highly seasonal, with most of the action happening from April through September. List your home during these months and you'll increase your chances of a quick sale.
3) Flooring and walls. Putting a fresh coat of paint can be a great way to freshen up any room in your house. Remember, it's about creating a neutral space that the buyer can imagine themselves living in.
Replacing flooring is another surefire way to make a big impression. Hardwood flooring options abound, and local flooring experts can help with selection and flooring installation.
4) Emulate a hotel. Think of how a hotel is decorated. It's done in a way that is neutral, allowing anyone to comfortably relax. There are no personal touches, just elegant utilitarian elements and colors. Ideally, this is how you want your home to look while it's for sale. Remove any signs of you, so it's easy for the buyer to imagine themselves living in the home.
5) Sweat the small stuff. Fixing that leaky faucet or creaky door will go a long way towards showing prospective buyers that your home is quality. Paying attention to details can really pay off because that's exactly what leaves a lasting impression - either good or bad. Go throughout the home, from room to room, and make a list of everything that needs to be repaired. Many items on your list will be things you can likely handle yourself. For larger jobs, you may need to bring in an expert, but when potential buyers are walking through the home the repairs will pay off.
