Ok, so you have thought about listing your Columbus home, but all you have heard are the negatives. Everyone is saying "it won't sell, there are too many homes on the market, you can't compete with all of the homes out there right now" Don't believe all of the hype. Yes, homes must be priced correctly to sell in todays market especially in places like Columbus Ohio. However what you may not know is that if you, the home seller price your home correctly and follow these simple rules of selling your home, you will not only get it sold, but very quickly even in today's rough economy.
1. Front yard and porch. Mow the grass and keep it green. Keep the porch immaculate--no dirt or bugs.
2. Mulch all the beds. Flowers and shrubs help, but if the owner can't afford anything else, mulch will do the trick.
3. Paint will pay off. Covering everything with a fresh coat of paint--preferably a neutral color--will help the house sell.
4. Front entrance. Freshening up the front door is particularly important.
