If you are trying to sell your home in Bothell you may be concentrating on the larger picture and not seeing the smaller picture as it really is. While it is important to get the overall look of your home in shape to sell it, there are some little things that will really stand out and need to be handled to help your home sell faster.
Sometimes it is just one little thing that will attract or discourage a potential buyer. Sometimes it is just a minor repair that needs to be done, a quick tidy up or a special cleaning of an area that will make a difference for a sale.
Here are some things you should keep in mind when you are preparing your home in Bothell for a property sale.
Make sure that all the doors and cupboards work properly in your home.
There is nothing more frustrating than trying to cook in a kitchen where the drawers don’t open properly or the cupboards bang when they are shut. You’d be surprised at how many people will test out your drawers and cupboards when they are looking at your home, especially if they see it as a potential home that they could call their own.
Look for small repairs
You may have some small repairs that you have been putting off and may be thinking that you don’t need to get them done since you are trying to sell your home in Bothell. If the small repair is something very visible or may be noticed by buyers, it would probably be in your best interest to get it fixed. If it has been bugging you, chances are it will irritate a potential buyer as well.
Sweep up your front stairs
Since your potential buyers are going to have to walk up your front stairs, make sure that you keep them clean. While you’re at it, you should also sweep up the sidewalk in front of your home along with the walkway to it. Give your visitors a good opinion of your home right from the start.
Look for small messes
There may be a few small messes that should be tidied up around your home. Perhaps you keep a pile of mail on the counter in your kitchen. While you are selling your home, simply place this mail in a box and stick it in a cupboard. You never know what effect these small messes may be having on the people that are viewing your home.
Do everything you can to show every prospective buyer that enters your home that you care about the house and have put special attention into it. This is what most buyers are looking for and what should be displayed when you are trying to sell your home in Bothell.
