When you are selling your home, it takes more than a coat of fresh paint and a newly mowed lawn to attract New Albany home buyers. With a majority of home buyers finding homes for sale online, every detail matters, from the way your home looks on the outside to the way your room looks in a listing photo.
Here are our essential home selling tips, which will help you sell quickly and for more money this spring.
1. Create the Best First Impression
How your home looks from the outside can make or break a sale, since buyers tend to think that how your home looks on the outside reflects what it looks like on the inside. The more curb appeal your home has, the more likely it is to sell quickly and garner a higher selling price.
To increase your home’s curb appeal, try:
- mowing the lawn and edging the yard
- cleaning the gutters
- painting the front door
- setting flowers on either side of the door or walkway
2. Set the Stage for Showings
The first impression from curb appeal needs to continue when buyers enter your home. Make sure that your home is clean and clutter-free, smells fresh, and looks like new.
Don’t forget to neutralize the interior — home staging is all about eliminating distractions to allow buyers to picture themselves living in your home. You can find more about home staging on our article about preparing your New Albany home to sell.
3. Attract Buyers with Quality Listing Photos
Once your home has excellent curb appeal and has been staged well, it’s time to take pictures. With over 75% of home buyers looking at listings online first, it’s not enough to take a picture with your phone. You need to show them every perfect detail with a high-quality photograph.
4. Effectively Market Your Home Online
It’s no longer enough to put a “For Sale” sign in your yard. New Albany home buyers are searching online for homes, and home marketing has shifted to include social media marketing.
