10 Killer Tips for Selling a Home

Real Estate Agent

Selling a home is usually the most daunting task. The biggest worry for many home owners is usually if their property will sell once its listed in the real estate listing site. Any property can sell quickly as long as the owner takes the appropriate measures. It’s not all about getting an experienced real estate agent. There are a few things that you need to do in order to make your home ready for listing. Afterwards, everything else will fall in place. First and foremost, selling the home starts by landing a good real estate agent to help you along the way, you can check out more on bayut property portal.

Take good care of the landscape

The landscape of your home should be perfect. This is the first thing that potential buyers will notice as they enter your home. Take care of the flowerbeds, lawns and the plants around the home. All you have to do is tidy up by trimming bushes, mowing the lawn and cutting the grass short.


Get rid of all excess stuff present in the house. This makes it easier for buyers to envision themselves living in that house. Piles of clutter in the rooms make them look smaller. Remove extra furniture, personal belongings and even picture hangings. Furthermore, clean each one of the rooms and neatly arrange the remaining furniture.

Repaint the walls

Old and stained paint will make a room look unattractive. That is why it’s important to repaint the walls in the house. Go for contemporary colors. However, if you are not sure then it’s better to get professional help from an interior designer. In the end, it will pay off.

Get a real estate agent

It is always wise to seek the services of an experienced real estate agent. They know the market well and will advise you on what to do. For instance, a real estate agent can suggest a competitive price for your home.

Take good photos of the house

The photos that you post on the listing are what will make the house sell faster or ruin everything. Therefore, you have to make sure the photography is exceptional. Those photos will market your home on the listing. You can even hire a professional to do the work if you are not good at it. It is never something to underestimate.

Market the property online

Simply posting your property on your listing is not enough. If you want the process to be swift and fast then you have to utilize all forms of marketing especially online. In this case you should have great photos of the home. Thereafter, you can advertise the property by posting them on all social media platforms such as Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest.

Light up the home

Good lighting has a way transforming a house and making it more inviting. Allow sunlight to flow into the house by drawing the curtains. This should be done especially when a potential buyer is coming to view the home. You also opt to have brighter lights installed when there no enough natural light.

Do some basic repairs

You don’t have to spend a fortune on renovations. However, if your real estate agent recommends that you do some specific repairs then you ought to listen. Stains in the ceiling, broken door handles or leaking toilet are some of the thing that must be repaired. Such small repairs can easily put off a buyer.

Address bad smells and odors

Believe it or not, odors can indefinitely ruin your property sale. Nobody would want to buy a house that has bad smells coming out from every corner. It’s only wise that you get rid of all odors and fix the root problem. For instance, clear up the drains so that there is no dirty water lurking in them that can cause bad smells. In addition, open all windows to air the entire house. Clean the kitchen and air it to get rid of cooking smells.

Make the kitchen appealing

The focus point of many buyers is usually the kitchen. Do everything you can to make it appealing and updated. If the counter tops are old, the best thing you can do to add value is to install some new ones. `
