If you’ve decided on selling your Fort Wayne home, it’s important to do what you can to make it as appealing as possible for your potential buyers. You want them to see your home as a part of their future, so take your time to show them it’s potential.
Here are mistakes to avoid when selling your Fort Wayne home.
Potential homebuyers are not looking for the “lived-in” look. Clear away your clutter and move all of your family photos to offer them a “clean-slate” sort of look that will show them the true potential of each room.
Store away the kitchen appliances as well to give them a clear view of counter space. If you can, give all the rooms a fresh coat of paint to bring new life to your home.
Keep in mind that if you have pets or smoke inside you will need to take measures to clear these smells from your home; using vinegar can help to clear the walls and most floors.
Have your carpets steam cleaned along with furniture. Remove all window hangings and clean them as well.
The way your Fort Wayne home looks from the driveway is the first thing potential buyers see when they arrive at your home; don’t ignore it.
Make sure that your yard is well kept and the sidewalks are clear. Trim the hedges, the grass, trees, and make sure that the paint on the house looks fresh.
These little steps won’t sell your Fort Wayne home on their own but will give your potential buyers reason to want to step inside.
If you’re present when a buyer comes to look at the home, greet them as they come through the door, but let them walk throughout the home without interruption. Let them see the home for what they want it to be, without bothering them about every detail.
If they have questions answer them, and let them know you are there to answer anything they may need but don’t crowd them as this can cost you the sale.
Committing one of these mistakes alone is enough to prevent your home from selling quickly, but making all of them will almost guarantee that you are not selling your Fort Wayne home.
As home sellers your goals should be in making your home more inviting in order to help sell your home more quickly. Take the time to show the homebuyers the true potential and what it there future can look like.
