Is it your first time selling a home in Kingstowne VA? If yes, then be prepared. Buyers are not only pickier these days, they also have more tools in their belts to make sure that they only end up with the property that is best for them.

 

With hundreds of properties vying for homebuyers’ attention, how do you make sure that your Kingstowne VA property stands out among the rest?

 

When it comes to selling a home, first impressions are everything. A prospective buyer forms this impression in as fast as a tenth of a second, and this impression is what makes him decide whether he likes your home or not. Considering that, ensuring that your home is able to make the best impression possible is a must.

 

Here are the details you shouldn’t overlook when preparing your home for sale:

 

1. Curb Appeal

 

While some home sellers tend to attach less importance to this part of the home, you shouldn’t. When selling a home, it is imperative that you clean up your yard because that is what prospective buyers see first before they enter your home. Make sure that your curb is not only clean but is visually appealing as well.

 

2. Paint

 

Paint is another very important detail you shouldn’t overlook when selling your home. Since first impressions are key to attracting buyers, you need to make sure that you give both the exterior and interior of your home a fresh coat of paint. If you fail in this part, chances are you won’t be able to get prospective buyers to buy your home.

 

3. Homey Feel

 

When checking out a home for sale, most homebuyers try to picture themselves in that home. If your home is full of clutter and too many personal details, a prospective buyer might not be able to see your home as his future home.

 

4. Closets

 

Homebuyers want closets that are spacious and functional. As you prepare your home for sale, make sure that you have organized your closets, especially in the master bedroom.

 

5. Front Door

 

Since most homeowners are accustomed to paying more attention to the interior of their homes, they tend to forget that their front doors accumulate dirt as well. Buyers usually stare at the front door as they wait for it to be opened during a visit, so make sure that it is always clean.

 

6. Neutral Art Pieces

 

Pack all those personal, brightly colored art pieces in your home and replace them with neutral ones. With less personal details, it will be easier for prospective buyers to imagine themselves living in your home.

7. Fresh Smell

 

One of the things that initially turn prospective buyers off is a foul smell inside a home. Buyers love scents, so you might want to put some air fresheners in your home to make it smell more inviting. Nothing too strong, just a welcoming aroma.

 

8. Clean Surroundings

 

Remember that even before prospective buyers get into your home, their first impressions begin as they drive towards your property. Make sure that you keep your yard trimmed all the time and that your surroundings are not littered with trash.

 

9. Garage

 

Your garage tells a lot about how you maintain your property. If your garage is full of junk and is a complete mess, prospective buyers might think that the seemingly well-maintained interior of your home is just a façade.

 

10. Professional Photos and Listing

 

You can never underestimate the value of appealing photos when selling a home, especially nowadays. With the advent of technology, homebuyers research homes for sale in Kingstowne VA online first before checking out locations in person. Hire a professional photographer to take photos of your well-staged home and ask your agent to create an appealing listing online before actually showing your place to prospective buyers.

 

These tips may sound simple to you, but missing out on any of them can make or break the sale of your home. If you want to sell your home fast, pay attention to these details and make sure that you don’t overlook any of them.
