A Common Northeast OH Short Sale Marketing Mistake: Your Realtor Doesn't Make Sure That Your Home Shows Well

Northeast OH – When another agent brings a buyer to look at your home your realtor should follow up afterwards. 

If you want to sell your home, then it needs to show well. Here are a few tips.

1. Open the blinds and curtains. Bring in as much outside light as possible. Most showings happen during the day, whether during the week or on the weekend.

Turn on as many lights as possible. Buyers want to buy an open and bright home. They don’t want a “cave.”

Sure, they will turn the home into a “cave” after they buy it. They will have the blinds closed most of the time. They will install curtains and never let any natural light into the house.

But, that doesn’t mean they want to buy a “cave.” Yes, I know it’s crazy. I guess it’s just human nature at work.

2. Your home should be clean, tidy, and well groomed. Fix anything that doesn’t look right. If your sidewalk is black from algae, then pressure wash it off. Put new mulch in the front beds.

3. If you have a good sense for decorating, then decorate! Make your decorating neutral enough that most people will like it. If you have an empty room, then rent some furniture and put it in there.

Buyers have a hard time imagining if their furniture will fit in a room. They usually think that they need more room than they actually do.

If they can see furniture already there, then it helps bridge that gap. They can see for themselves that their furniture will fit.

4. Get the carpets cleaned. If your carpet is old, but you can’t afford to replace it, then hire a good steam cleaner. Ask someone who manages an apartment complex for a referral.

Most apartment complexes know a carpet cleaner that can get the so called “impossible stains” out of carpet.
