Selling your home in today’s market can definitely be a challenge to say the least. While sellers want their houses to move off the market quickly, that isn’t always how it works out. But, if you want to sell your house and move out in a timely manner, there are some mistakes you should simply avoid. We’ve laid them out for you.
1. Moving with All the Furniture
While you don’t have to sell your furniture with the house, nothing sells slower than an empty house. So, if you get a great job opportunity and need to relocate on the fly, don’t move with all your furniture. Leave some in the house you want to sell so that there is an element of staging.
2. Avoiding Home Staging
Home staging is not just for the rich; it is a crucial element that will help you sell your house faster. Proper home staging can mean the difference between a house that sits on the market and another that moves quickly. Home staging allows potential buyers to envision their lives in the house.
3. Your Pets Don’t Smell
Sure, you may love your pets but trust us they stink. Not everyone will appreciate the way your animals smell, so you definitely need to make sure the house is properly cleaned and your pets are kept away during any showings.
4. Everyone Understands a Little Clutter
When someone is thinking of buying and moving into your home, they don’t want to see any clutter. Sure, life is messy, but strangers don’t need to see it. Any clutter at all will make your house less attractive to potential buyers.
