7 Pro Tips and Tricks to Sell Your Home Faster

DIY Selling: How To Improve Your Home’s Value In A Single Weekend

selling your houseWhen you choose to sell your own home, you may feel at a disadvantage. Without a realtor, you have to promote the home yourself, stage the home yourself, and finally convince potential buyers of its resale value.

The good news is you don’t have to break the bank in order to give your home just enough of an overhaul to attract the attention of potential buyers. By making small changes to your home’s interior and exterior, you can improve your home’s value in the matter of a single weekend.

  1. Brighten your rooms
    One of the easiest ways to change the appearance of your home is to change the wattage of your light bulbs. Brighter rooms look more appealing to potential buyers. It makes the rooms look happier and more attractive.

    Another way to brighten the rooms is to give your walls a fresh coat of paint. However, be careful with the color you choose. When it comes to staging, you want to go as neutral as possible in order to appeal to a wider audience. Use colors like white or a soft light gray.
  2. Make minimal upgrades
    You may feel the need to make pricey improvements when selling a house. However, you could put $30,000 into a kitchen’s counters only to have the home buyer change them later once they’ve moved in. Make smaller and less pricey upgrades instead of doing an entire remodel. A difference in hand towels and a shower curtain can brighten up a dreary bathroom. If you hate the tile, choose a color scheme to make it look elegant instead of horrendous. Potential buyers will be less likely to balk.
  3. Improve your curb appeal
    Up to 90% of real estate agents recommend improving the landscaping around the exterior before selling your house. It’s the exterior of the home that the buyer sees first and a great impression on the outside will hold their attention for the remainder of the house tour. Trim the hedges, add flowers by the steps or door, and potentially invest in a fresh coat of paint.

The path to selling your house may seem long and stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. By making small improvements around your home prior to listing it as a house for sale by owner, you can guarantee that to open the pool to more potential buyers. With these tips, you’ll be selling your house faster than you expected.
