Six Tips for Selling Your Home

First National Real Estate can help you sell your home quickly for the best possible price. Here are some tips that have proven to be invaluable to the successful home seller.

First Impressions Are Lasting

From the moment prospects arrive at your home, it should be evident that the gardens and lawns are well presented. Garden rubbish should be disposed of and paths and porches kept clear of debris. Toys, sporting equipment, and garden tools should be stored away to enhance the appearance of your backyard and garden.

It’s also a nice idea to have your home professionally staged if vacant. Professional staging helps fill empty rooms and enables potential buyers to have a connection to your home and have an idea of how the spaces inside the home could work.

A Tidy Home Ensures An Open For Inspection Is ‘Welcoming’

Your home should be kept neat and tidy during the period of inspections. The home should create an inviting atmosphere by ensuring the arrangement of furniture is in a comfortable position. Utilise fresh flowers, indoor plants, candles or paintings as they always brighten up a home.

Repairs Can Make A Big Difference

Make sure that all minor repairs are completed. Sticking doors and windows, loose doorknobs, faulty plumbing, peeling paint or a faulty fly screen may affect your sale.

Let The Sun Shine In

It is imperative to let plenty of light into your home. Nothing improves atmosphere more than brightness. It is advisable to switch lights on prior to the arrival of prospective purchasers and open blinds and curtains.

Make Them Comfortable

A warm, comfortably heated home on cold days adds a feeling of coziness. On a hot day don’t forget to turn on the air conditioning or fan (or simply let the breeze flow through).

Music In The Air And Pets Underfoot

As a general rule, it is advisable to keep pets out of the house. We also like to play soft music during inspections to create a calm and inviting atmosphere.
