How to sell your Fredericksburg house!
Here is some helpful information about how to sell your Fredericksburg house. Start be disassociating yourself from your home. Try to act like your home is not your home. Act as if you are a visitor to the house and you are seeing it for the first time, like you were walking into a friend’s house for the first time. Put yourself in the mindset of a potential visitor or buyer and try to figure out how they would feel about the appearance of the house and what they would like and dislike.
De-clutter and de-personalize your home. If you don’t need it, donate it, give it away or through it away. It will make the house look better and also help you since you will have less to pack and move to your next home!
Put away the personal photographs and family knickknacks. Buyers can’t see past personal things. You want buyers to imagine how they will decorate the home and now wonder about what kind of family they are buying from. You may even want to rent a storage unit and keep the house as sparsely decorated as possible
Make all necessary repairs before putting your home on the market. Replace cracked floor or counter tiles, repair drywall, touch-up paint, fix leaky faucets, etc. Repair anything around the house that you can so that anyone coming into the house can see that the house is well maintained. That will give a very good impression to all potential buyers.
Clean the house! Keep the house clean at all times. Yes, this may be hard, but it is definitely worth the effort. You must clean the cobwebs, keep the floors vacuumed and mopped, lean out the cabinets, clean all bathroom and light fixtures, countertops, etc. You get the idea, keep it clean, because you never know when a potential buyer is going to be popping by.
Improve your home’s curb appeal. If a buyer won’t get out of her car because she doesn’t like the exterior of your home, you’ll never get her inside, and you’ll never sell it. Mow the lawn, put fresh mulch in the planting areas, keep the sidewalks cleared., trim the bushes, plant new shrubs and flowers, etc. Make the front of your house as inviting as possible and they will come!
