Tip #2: Minor Repairs and Updates
There is no need to go a full makeover unless of course you want to, but instead do updates that will pay off and help you to sell quicker. Things like a fresh coat of paint, clean blinds or replace them, replace door handles throughout the home, replace hardware on cabinets, and repair or replace any leaking faucets.
Tip #3: Declutter & Clean Up Before Showings and Open Houses
Potential buyers want to envision themselves living in the property so it is important for them to see the space and paint the picture of how they will decorate and use the house as their own. Having a clean and decluttered space will allow for buyers to get that.
Tip # 4: Have The Home Smell Good and Clean
When potential buyers visit the home either during a showing or open house, being invited with a nice pleasant scent helps the buyers relax and feel at home. Some people like to bake cookies or cupcakes before anyone arrives. Air fresheners like Febreze small spaces, plugins, and sprays are another popular option. Candles are also popular and smell great too. Essential oils are usually great and calming as well to have around the home. No matter what you use, try and keep it a neutral, calm, and a clean or enticing smell that gives potential buyers a clean or enticing vibe.
