Selling a house can be very frustrating, especially when you’re not familiar with what buyers want. Most potential clients window-shop for homes before settling for one. Logically, the buyer will settle for the most impressive property.
Ridge Top Exteriors reveals a few things that will set your house apart in today’s steady competition.
The Curb Appeal
Like most things in life, first impressions matter. At a glance, the compound and your houses outside appearance should make a statement. Let the exterior represent the interior decor and here is where most people go wrong.
There are three stages to selling a house: attracting the buyer, maintaining their attention and standing out in competition. The curb appeal does the first thing; drawing the buyer's attention.
Your home should be warm and inviting. You can achieve this by repainting the house, replacing any broken windows and glasses. Don’t leave anything to chance here.
Consider landscaping the compound; this doesn’t need to cost you bucks, you could actually take some time and do-it-yourself.
Make the Necessary Repairs
After you’ve grabbed the buyer's interest, the next step and the hardest is to maintain their interest.
You can rest assured that a potential buyer will be scrutinizing every detail in each room. They’ll turn on the taps, open and close doors just to see if the hinges are broken, check the bathroom to see if the shower is broken, name it! Nobody wants to settle for a house that is full of things that need repair
One last thing here is the roof. You’d rather have a broken shower rather than a leaking roof. Potential buyers are aware that repairing and replacing a roof is very involving so they’ll ask you questions and even invite a roofing expert before settling for your house.
As a seller, what you may need to know is that most roof replacement companies can evaluate the roof to determine whether it needs replacement or repair. You can always request for a budget so that you plan early enough
When selling a house, it’s the small things people tend to ignore that matter. Ask yourself this question: if I was a buyer, would I settle for this house? This will help you fix the loose knots and seal that deal.
