If you’re like most people selling a home in Jasper, your Realtor® has talked to you about home staging and how it can help you sell your home.
(What’s that? You haven’t hired a Realtor yet? Let’s talk!)
But staging is only part of the puzzle. There are other things you can do to help your agent sell your home quickly and at the right price.
5 Tips to Help You Sell Your Home in Jasper
- Take out ALL the clutter
- Clean, clean, clean
- Depersonalize your space
- Make small repairs
- Aim for neutral decor
#1. Take Out ALL the Clutter
Your house will look a lot bigger when it’s decluttered. And while you definitely have to remove clutter from countertops, out of drawers and out of closets (buyers will look!), you also have to remove furniture and decor that makes your house look cluttered. Bring in a friend you trust to help you decide whether something looks cluttered – you’re used to seeing your home as-is, so you may need an objective eye.
#2. Clean, Clean, Clean
When prospective buyers come to your home, you want them to see that it’s easy to keep clean – and the best way to do that is by keeping it spotless yourself. Buyers will open drawers, look in closets and look behind doors, so clean as if Mary Poppins were going to inspect the house. (And if all else fails, hire a pro!)
#3. Depersonalize Your Space
Take out decor that showcases your personal style. That goes for family portraits, eclectic artwork and certainly anything that could be considered risqué. Remove political ads, religious items and anything else that could alienate any segment of your buyers, too.
#4. Make Small Repairs
If there are little repairs you can make around your house – tightening a faucet here, replacing a screen there – you should dive into them before you even list your home.
#5. Aim for Neutral Decor
You don’t want to distract prospective buyers with your sense of style. Instead, you want them to notice all the great features your home has. You can make sure they do by aiming for neutral decor throughout the house. Even if you don’t redecorate, talk to your Realtor about whether you should repaint bold accent walls, take down wallpaper or make other adjustments.
