Show your home to home buyers That’s it. Freeze on your cake. The moment you’ve been waiting for since you decided to sell your home. The prices are right, the marketing is going well, and you’re excited to see the feedback begin to arrive: homebuyers are coming! Now is the time to take your marketing to the next level: home visits. How do you prepare for it? You have inspected, inspected and cleaned your home thoroughly. You’ve made sure that everything is in the right place, or otherwise, in the most ideal place for display. After all, shows are an opportunity to impress buyers by showing off everything your home has to offer.
Now relax. Introducing your home to buyers is especially easy when you’re looking to sell your home yourself. This is a great opportunity to get personal – homebuyers will want to see more of the home they saw in the listing photo. As you move around the house, pay special attention to objects that have created some memories during your stay. Things like “My dad made this beautiful sculpture when he was 18” will add a personal touch to your home. And while you’re using your family, get your family members involved. Assign them in advance for emergencies or short-term visits.
You want the full attention of buyers to your home. But at the same time, you want certain elements of your home to be insignificant to provide a comfortable environment. Make sure the house is well ventilated and lit by opening the windows (in inclement weather that can happen) and arranging all the siding for maximum sunlight. A dark house, especially when it is a large house, will create the effect of gloom and depression; not exactly the type of home you are going to buy.
During the time you have to close all windows, make sure the indoor air is fresh and clean. Some owners will bake cookies to keep the “fresh” air in, but if you don’t want to go that far, just make sure to remove pet/bathroom odors or fumes. In the inner projections, the air has to do what it’s supposed to do – allow the man to breathe – and do nothing more.
It is highly not recommended to have a pet nearby. Regardless of how well-behaved they are or how much a buyer may like them, you should not take your pet outside. Heaven knows what kind of behavior they might suddenly adopt in front of your guests!
Finally, if an agent is showing a buyer your home, do your best not to stay in your home. Homebuyers tend to feel like an intruder when examining the details of a home in front of its owner.
