Every person that is truly dedicated to selling their Canadian home should be looking into the nitty gritty details to ensure that their home has its best chance of finding a new and loving owner. Below you will find a just a few ideas for what it means to get down and into the nitty gritty of home selling.
Replace The Worn Out Carpets
If you have lived in the home for quite a while than your carpets are never going to look like they were just rolled out from the carpet store. This is just a fact that you cannot avoid. If you purchased the home recently and didn’t get information on how old the carpet is, you may just wish to replace it for the sake of making the home more marketable and inviting. This is especially true if the carpet just doesn’t look nice, it doesn’t complement the home, or if you do not know what could be have been spilled and supporting bacterial growth underneath the surface. Everyone likes to read “brand new carpet freshly installed” when looking for a home to purchase.
Stain Or Paint The Doors
The doors are one feature of a home that make a big impact on new potential buyers. Still, sellers have seen the doors so many times that they are often one of the first features that gets forgotten. Make sure to slap a fresh face of paint on outside doors and garage doors to make them dazzle with a fresh and clean appearance. If the doors are inside, make sure to polish, stain, or paint these doors as well just to give them a new look on life. You know what the doors need.
Make Minor Updates
Have you ever walked into a home that looks perfectly liveable, but that you have stepped decades into the past when you really wished to stay in present day? Yes, clean and liveable are the number one priorities, but you will find that your home will sell far more quickly if you have made minor updates. This could be anything from ensuring that the appliances are stainless steel to more extensive remodeling projects.
Keep The Outside Looking Brilliant
Clip the flowers and shrubs, cut the grass on a regular basis, and pretend that you are a professional landscaper if you are not. Your yard is going to sell your home just as much as the inside of it will. If you cannot afford to decorate the yard in expensive lawn ornaments and transplanted flowers, than simply make sure that it is cleaner than it has ever been before.
Decorate Like You Never Have Before
You may not be the type of person that decorates for holidays or seasonal changes, but you should make these types of accommodations when selling your home. A wreath on the door, a vase of fake fall flowers, and even solid color bedding that coordinates to the season can go a long way in making your home look like the type of home your next potential buyer could see themselves living.
Make The Home Smell Like Home
There are certain smells that make every person feel like they have walked into their own homes. Do you have fond memories of coming home to mom’s famous chocolate chip cookies or dad’s faint cologne? Never flood the home with smells because you never know may be triggered by allergies or asthma, but give the home a faint smell of “home”. If you can make your potential buyers believe that they are home, than you have done your job.
