My brokerage average sales time per listing is 70 days from start to finish. This is a hot market for Sellers if certain conditions are met.
First impressions, the curb appeal is really important.
First make the home more inviting to Buyers. A fresh coat of Paint will never hurt. The color is an important issue. Consider these points:
v Use of the Room
v The design of the room
v Texture of the wall
v Consider painting the ceiling
Start with the outside preparation,
v Clean the driveway and sidewalks
v Remove your car from the driveway
v Remove all garbage cans from view of the camera
v Landscaping fresh mulch and flowers
v Remove all tools etc.
v Clean Pool and decking
The inside should be just as neat and clean,
v Put away Clothing items
v De-Clutter all rooms
v Countertops in kitchen and bathrooms should be clean
v Remove all stickers and magnets from refrigerator
v Make sure all light bulbs are working
v Turn on all lamps and lights
Following these simple tips will ensure your property is presented properly to anyone who views the real estate photos.
Another tip, Sellers could help to seller their Metairie home is to open up the house. Lighting a Property to Sell is so important in showing a home. I suggest to all Seller to turn all lights. When the lights are on the home will feel more inviting and larger. A well-lit home make the home more attractive.
Adding or changing hardware on your cabinet doors can change the look of a room dramatically. New fixtures such as lighting and doorknobs for a more updated look. These tips will add value to the home.
Selling your Metairie Home for $200,000 or more may require you to spend a little money, but you’ll likely get the full value of your home and a fast sale.
