Making Sure You Get The Most Value From Your Property

Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Associates of Fairbanks

There is a decent means to get a house shown & a wrong way to show. Lots of sellers leave behind money, or turn off prospective buyers since they simply don't see how a house should be shown. The folowing is a database of rules to monitor that'll assist you to sell your house for top figure profit:

  • Keep those receipts. If you concluded some substantial work on your house, keep your receipts but only bare them if anyone questions the value of work performed (in the negotiation process). Several times additional work will improve value to your property at little price. So just use the receipts if you need to validate the work.
  • Keep those utility bills. Buyers frequently have questions about utility costs of owning a home. If you still have utility bills, you'll truly increase your credibility & help deliver specified answers to fundamental questions. Be sure to keep electric, gas, water, oil, sewage & waste bills.
  • Getaway during organised tours. Three is a crowd when your home is shown. The lone exception to this policy is if you've got special knowledge of your property that your Realtor can not satisfy. But in most cases, don't delay. Buyers don't feel comfortable to thoroughly take in everything, if they think that the seller is "watching their every action. "
  • Turn all lights on in the course of showings. Lighting is a good sign. Even in the middle of a sunny afternoon.
  • Open all drapes & bring in as much natural light as imaginable. Buyers dislike dark homes. All you can do to brighten up your home helps.
  • Turn off the radio & television. Turn off the football game. Inform the children that loud music will need a postponement while the home is displayed. Sometimes very delicate, background music can better a showing. But normally, no music whatsoever is your top option.
  • Prepare a pleasant scent. Cinnamon sticks or vanilla boiled in a pot of water on the range produce lovely aromas & make a home smell attractive. Apple & cherry wood smouldering a fireplace do the same. & who can in actuality resist the scent of apple pie or fresh bread baking in the kitchen. Often, these pleasant smells can overrule old odours your home can have. Keeping animals out of the home is a precondition. It's best to keep them away from home for an entire calendar day before an open house. On the way "pet smell" has time to weaken.
  • Finally, ensure you don't multi-color material with a lot of varied colours. A buyer should walk in & set eyes on at first sight only three & not more than four colours before they feel "full" anything over that and they wont don't feel comfortable.

If you do all of these tips then the value of your Fairbanks real estate will be enhanced greatly.  Always remember with real estate that the devil is in the details.
