To sell quickly

When it comes to selling your property, you only have one chance to make a good impression.

The exterior

How your property looks from the outside is very important. An attractive exterior encourages the buyer to visit the interior. Your landscaping should be neat, and in the winter, keep pictures on hand to help the visitor visualize how the yard looks in the summer. Cleanliness is key: a clear entrance and clean windows will also make a big difference.

The interior

Inside, the key is cleanliness. Give your home a thorough cleaning and get rid of unnecessary items. Remove old furniture that obstructs walkways or clutters rooms. Clear out the space so visitors don’t feel crowded.

Does the paint need to be refreshed? A freshly painted property often sells for more. Also, be aware that darker colors do not help the sale. Instead, opt for light, bright tones. The condition of the carpets can also be a determining factor. If you don’t replace them, clean them to give them a facelift.

The kitchen and bathroom should be immaculate. Take the time to clean appliances and faucets, as well as the tub, toilet and sink. Clear the countertops and don’t leave dishes in the sink or towels on the edge of the tub. Give the buyer a glimpse of all the storage possibilities.

Throughout the house, fix leaky faucets, faulty handles, loose drawers or cabinet doors, etc. Replace burnt-out light bulbs and yellowed electrical plates. Most of these small repairs are relatively inexpensive and will positively influence the buyer.

Create an atmosphere

It is essential that your home is well lit. Open the curtains during the day and turn on the lamps at night. If necessary, add lamps in dark corners. Make sure the house is well ventilated. Don’t repel the buyer with strong smells, such as incense or spicy food.

During the buyer’s visit, be discreet and leave your broker alone with the client. It will be easier for him to show your home and the client will feel more free to give his comments.
