New Home Builders? Meet New Buyers

When you’re going to sell your home, you don’t want it to be a long, drawn-out process. The faster your home sells, the faster you’ll be able to move out and into a new home. When I sold my first home, I learned a lot from the realtor I was using that was affiliated with a home builder locally (www.TollbergHomes.com). The first thing she told me to do was make sure that my home had curb appeal. I went through and cleaned up all of the brush, pressure washed the house, added some lights, and removed trash that I had sitting around. I also made sure the lawn was freshly cut when someone would come to the house. Next, I worked on the inside of the home. Since the home was older, I went through and changed faucets, hardware, and lighting to newer, modern options that would be more appealing. These small details can really draw a buyer in. I got rid of some excess furniture and made sure that my house was as clean as possible. You don’t want someone to come into your home and see dust or trash laying around. The main tip for selling a home quickly is to do as much as you can before you show your home. Try to make everything look as perfect as possible.

Avoid These Mistakes When Selling Your Home

I have plenty of friends who have sold homes in the past, so I like to think of myself as a bit of an expert on the topic. One thing that I notice is that many of them make the same mistakes and they end up having property on the market longer than they would have liked.

One of the main things that I know buyers are not fond of is the presence of pets. There is nothing like looking around a great place and running into a huge dog or a cat lying on the floor next to a litter box.

Another thing that people have a problem with is terrible curb appeal. Why in the world would anyone care about how great the inside is if they have a hard time admiring how it looks as they approach.

The last thing I would say is a huge deal breaker is filled closets. Storage space is a huge priority when looking for a new place. If all of your things are shoved in all of the closets in the home, how in the world are people supposed to see how much space is available.

Highly Effective Tips For Selling Your Home

Let’s face it – selling a home is not easy. There are countless details that need to be taken care of and decisions that need to be made in order to ensure a fast sale and a fair selling price. Check out some of the following tips for selling your home to improve your chances of success:

1. Consider staging your home. Removing all unnecessary clutter from your home and arranging the remaining furniture and accessories in each room to make them look as nice as possible can go a long way toward helping you sell your home.

2. Work with a qualified real estate agent. A good agent can help you determine a fair selling price for your home. They also generally will have industry connections that can help you find a buyer more quickly.

3. Take excellent pictures. These days, most people conduct real estate searches online before viewing houses in person. If you want to catch their attention, you need to take extremely high-quality photos of your property. You may even want to think about hiring a professional photographer to help your house look its best.

These tips should help you sell your home in practically no time at all.

How To Make The Inside Of Your Home Appeal To Buyers

When you’re still living in your home, it may feel like it’s going to be difficult to sell the home. It can be difficult for buyers to see themselves in your home when it’s full of your things. While you can’t get rid of all of your furniture, there are a few things you can do to improve the inside appeal of your home in order to sell quicker.

When showing your home, try to make sure that you’ve gotten all of the clutter out. If you’re selling your home, you’ll be moving eventually. It’s a good time to go through your things and get rid of the stuff you don’t want. This can remove clutter and free up space in the home. You also want to make sure that your home is as clean as possible. Dust, dirt, and grime can make a home look really unappealing. Go through and do a thorough job of cleaning. Make sure you dust, clean vents, remove cobwebs and get all of the places that are often overlooked – behind doors, door handles, floor trim, corners, etc. You can also rearrange your furniture to make your rooms look more appealing. Placing items in certain positions can help to make your rooms look larger than they may actually be.

Hello and Welcome!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by my blog. My name is Jeena, and my dream is to be a real estate agent. I’m not a real estate agent, but I’ve managed to sell my house for an excellent price, so I though I’d like to share my best tips with all of you, here.

I’m taking a class at the local community college about real estate. Our assignment this month was to write a blog, find a domain, and set it up. This way we learn about blogging, which is a useful skill if we want to be actual agents.

We were taught how to find expired domains, which can help in getting more readers. I found this one, Rinehart Homes, in the expired list. I have no affiliation with Rinehart Homes, and don’t know if they’re even in business. If they are, I assume they are using a different domain for their business.

Anyway, I’ve had a great interest in selling and buying homes, and I really got into it when I sold my own home. Before putting the house up for sale, I made small improvements that helped me change the way it looked. You can’t imagine how much a fresh coat of paint on the walls can do for the overall look of a building! I’ve painted both the outside and the interior walls, I’ve planted a few flowers and I’ve cleaned the windows thoroughly. When a house is neat, it looks beautiful.

As I didn’t afford to replace the floors, I did my best to have them waxed and polished. It wasn’t cheap, but it was way more affordable than a complete replacement. Besides, all potential buyers appreciated the beauty and the durability of the hardwood. Today’s flooring solutions are less durable and not so stylish.

Last but not least, I removed all clutter from sight. This is very important for the first impression, so you should definitely hide everything that belongs to you and isn’t a cool appliance or a beautiful piece of furniture. It took me one month from listing the house to selling it, so I’m very pleased that my efforts paid off.

I have purchased three homes in my lifetime, and there are many that I have viewed and overlooked. If you are trying to sell your property, here are a few ways to scare them.

Keeping an old kitchen is terrifying. No one loves the idea of a nostalgic stive reminiscent of the Brady Bunch and the idea of having old, tacky wallpaper worsens the thought. Spruce it up and bring it into this millennium.

Pull up your old rugs. When I am walking through a place, the last thing I want to see is stains all over the rug. While I am probably going to pull it out anyway, the idea that you would burden me with this much work is upsetting. Take care of this before you list.

Stop hanging around. Sometimes I like a place and I want to ask questions, but I feel like I am offending the owner. You should have a real estate agent take care of everything if you want to sell your place faster.

There are other things that can sink a home sale faster than the Titanic, but I believe that these problems are the most egregious.
