Don’t let the dream of selling your home quickly and efficiently be deflated with a pile of worries. Remember a few tips that will may make the process easier.
Professionally photographed homes may garner more attention from buyers as they decide which properties to visit in person. Hire a photographer to make your home look clean and bright. If hiring someone isn’t in your budget, use a high-quality DSLR camera, and take pictures when it’s sunny and mid-day, maximizing the light exposure.
Fix up, look sharp:
One should never judge a book by its cover—except in the case of buying a house. Take advantage of this time selling your home by sprucing it up.
- Move furniture closer to the walls (about an inch). This displays the maximum amount of space your rooms have to offer.
- Power-wash the exterior of your home—including the backyard space—to give the outer layers new life.
- Declutter closets, laundry rooms, and other storage spaces. Again, it’s important to show off the amount of storage you have.

Hosting a website with builders like Squarespace and Wix.com is relatively cheap, plus the process of building it is rather straightforward. Since you’re in full control of what you what to exhibit, you can highlight the aspects of your home that would draw in your dream buyer. Stone-paved driveway? A spacious oak terrace in the backyard? Marble counters in the kitchen and bathroom? Show it off!
Believe in signs:
In addition to using digital tools, a traditional sign on the front lawn may catch the attention of buyers who are already browsing the neighborhood.
