When selling your home, first impressions matter. A potential buyer’s first impression of your property plays a big role in determining whether or not they inquire further.
Whether or not they are aware, buyers are greatly influenced by their first impression of a respective home. In fact, the average house hunter will often decide within a few seconds if they are interested in a property.
If you want to sell your Kirtland OH home fast, make sure it’s appealing.
Here are some simple and inexpensive things you can do to ensure that your house makes a great first impression that beckons potential buyers.
A home with an impressive curb appeal will command a higher price and will take less time to sell. Remember that buyers want to see a welcoming and polished exterior. The walk-up to your house should be inviting.
Make sure to stay on top of your lawn and driveway maintenance. Keep areas like driveways and other exterior elements clean and neat-looking. While you’re at it, consider giving your front door, garage door, and gutters a fresh coat of paint.
Continue to make a great first impression as buyers make their way inside your home. There are many interior enhancements that can make your home aesthetically pleasing.
Creating a great first impression also involves tackling unfinished repairs and projects. Over the years, it’s easy to miss a lot of the wear and tear that happens to your home.
Take time to address issues like leaky taps, blown bulbs, and chipped paint. Repair anything that is broken.
The kitchen and the bathroom will likely get the most attention from homebuyers. Make sure that you fix minor issues such as broken drawers or cabinet doors, repairing any damaged countertop laminate, and replacing any broken hinges.
Even if you’re in a market where properties are selling quickly and for full asking prices, it is still imperative to prepare your home and prove to buyers that it is worth every penny you are asking for.
