Get Ready To Move Out

If you are looking to move in to your dream home, you need to sell the one you are currently living in. Most people usually think their house is the most beautiful house ever, but there might be a few things in your home that hold potential buyers back from actually buying your home. In our caring nature, we are going to share a few tips on How Not To Sell Your House.

sell your house - dirty walls

1. Dirt

Presentation is 90% of the battle when you are selling your home. The people coming to hopefully buy the home are trying to envision what the house would look like if they were to buy it, and having dirty nooks and crannies will not help their vision. Your home should be spotless when showing it to potential buyers.

sell your house - space

2. Space

Whether you like space or not you should give the potential home buyers an opportunity to see what the home will look like without clutter. If your home has plenty of cluttered areas it is best to un-clutter them and allow the home buyer to envision what they would place in that space instead of them seeing three tables full of your grandmother’s figurines.

sell your house - bad paint job

3. Bad paint job

A bad or interesting paint job can give off an uninviting or weird feel to the home. You are free to paint your home whatever color you’d like, but when it comes time to sell it, it is recommeneded that you paint your home a neutral color. A simple color that most people are used to can make the differnence when buying a home, simply because the buyer know they won’t have to paint the whole house in order to be comfortable once they buy it.

sell your house - high price

4. High Price

Price is the motive behind plenty of decisions that humans make, and a home is no different. Pricing your home too high is an easy route to how not to sell your house. A high priced home will have buyers turning the other way if they can’t match the price to the value of the home.

sell your house - lack of repairs

5. Lack of Repairs

Be sure to have all needed repairs done before potential home buyers come to your house. If you want to sell your house, having undone cupboards will not help you at all.

In order to sell your house, potential home buyers need to have a great visual experience when they enter your home, they need to be able to imagine their family being in the home and loving every moment of it. If you are able to avoid the aforementioned, you should have minimal problems trying to sell your house.
