But how do you handle that? How do you ensure that your home is found? And then again in the taste afterwards? In this article we give 8 tips for selling your home.
You deepen in the housing market
Do you know how many house seekers are in your municipality? And how many homes have been sold in the last 12 months? What is the average sales price? And to which homes the most demand is?
There are many interesting figures that can help you with the image of the current housing market in your municipality. Look for these figures online. If you immerse yourself in the housing market, you also know what you can expect during the sales process.
Make sure your home is seen
Before you can think about the viewings of your home, it is important to bring your home to the attention of potential buyers. The broker places your property on sales sites, advertises in local newspapers and presents your home on social media. You can also play an important role in advertising yourself. It is important that your message reaches as many people as possible. Ask friends and family to share your message on Social Media.
Extra tip: the asking price of your home is also an important factor. Do you want your home to be seen? Make sure it falls into the right price range.
Do not forget the first impression
The first impression of your home starts on arrival. Potential buyers are waiting for the house for a while. Is your garden badly maintained? Then you are soon with one point behind. Green fingers are not necessary for your garden to look neat. Make sure your garden is tidy. Is there outdoor furniture? Make sure it looks clean and fresh. Buy a plant for on the table or fill the flower boxes. Is there a little weed in the garden? Or moss between the tiles? Then remove it. It is a small effort, but can make a big difference.
Create a calm atmosphere
Upon receipt by the broker, potential buyers will enter your home. Again, it is important that everything looks neat and clean. Do you have a coat rack? Make sure that it is not completely full of jackets. Try to get personal belongings out of sight as much as possible. Put a bunch of flowers on the table and fill the fruit bowl with fresh fruit.
Extra tip: Also look at leaflets or websites with residential ideas. The rooms have a quiet and warm atmosphere. Houses where you could actually draw in.
Prepare yourself. What will be taken into account?
Will someone visit your home? Then there is a good chance that he or she has prepared well for it. Potential buyers often get the advice to also pay attention to the small things. Are the faucets running well? Can the windows be opened? By preparing yourself for these kinds of questions, you can remove these negative impressions in advance. A new hinge or a drop of oil can make the viewing run smoother. Search online for tips for viewing a home. If you know what the viewer will pay attention to, you also know how to make a good impression.
Someone is interested in your home. The appointment has been made. You have cleaned up your garden and house and there are fresh flowers on the table. Can you actually do more? Yes, that’s possible. Give potential buyers space. Are you being accompanied by a real estate agent during the sales process? Make sure that you are not present yourself. A viewer will feel less at ease if you watch and listen as an owner.
Ask for feedback
The chance that the first viewer wants to buy the house from you is not too big of course. There will be viewers who decide not to buy your house. In that case you can achieve a lot by asking about the reason for this decision. What is the reason they do not want to buy your home? Perhaps this decision is caused by points that you can fix relatively easily. Do you solve these ‘problems’? Then that increases your chances with the following viewers.
