10 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster in Richmond VA

Services for Real Estate Pros with Meredith Communications

When preparing to sell your home in Richmond, VA, try a few staging tips to help your Richmond home sell faster and spend less time on the market. Realtors, like the ones at Main Street Homes and Coldwell Banker Virginia Colony, can recommend a stager or you can try a few tips to help you sell your home sooner.  

  1. Make any repairs that your house might need. Fix the leaky sink in the bathroom or any other minor repairs that you just never got around too. Buyers want to see that your home is in a good working order and in a livable state when they stop by an open house.
  2. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders. Choose a warm, neutral color scheme for your new walls. Inviting colors can go a long way to making a potential buyer feel at home and comfortable in your house. 
  3. The easiest way to revamp outdated bathrooms and kitchens is to update fixtures. This can help update and revamp the whole look of a room.
  4. Fresh flowers can add a warm, inviting touch to any room. However, avoid fake flowers and placing too many flowers in each room. One to three vases in a room can make contrasting colors pop and create an sense of elegance, but too much can leave a room feeling a bit gaudy.
  5. Clean your entire home in Richmond, VA. No one wants to walk into a dirty home and especially not potential homeowners. Really clean your whole house until everything sparkles and shines like new.
  6. De-clutter. This is the most important part of staging your home. Clear out things that you do not need. Remove knick knacks and furniture that hinder buyers from walking around or distract from your homes natural focal points and features. Less is more this days. Rooms with too much stuff in them feel smaller, but rooms with less furniture feel open and roomy, an illusion that you want to create for potential home buyers.
  7. Curb appeal is really important to selling your home. Do yard work. Mow the lawn. Rake leaves. Plant new flowers. Buy a bench and new welcome mat for the front porch and wash the outside of your house. If a house looks inviting from the outside, then more buyers will want to see the inside of your home.
  8. Remove all family photos from your house. The buyer wants to picture themselves in a new home in Richmond, VA, not somebody else's family
  9. Slip covers are a great way to revamp old furniture if you do not want to rent furniture for a staging. Slip covers can also hide clashing colors and overwhelming furniture patterns.
  10. Create light. Open windows and turn on some lights. Potential buyers want to see everything and feel welcome in your staged home. Having a home full of light and space can help create a lasting feeling that will wow your potential buyers.
