Here in the Blue Ridge Mountains people are looking for properties where they can enjoy the outdoors. However, there are many things you can do to make your house or cabin most appealing to buyers. It’s important to remember people are not looking at how you live in the property; they are looking at how they will live in the property. To help them, de-clutter.
Our daily living habits are to fill flat surfaces with our “stuff”, an easy and convenient lifestyle. This can be a distraction for someone looking at house. Removing this type of “clutter” may be inconvenient for living but it can make a big difference in how your house appeals to buyers.
- Take out extra furniture to open up the space.
- Less furniture makes rooms seem bigger.
- Open up curtains and blinds.
- Let the light and beauty of the outdoors come in through your window.
- Clean your windows for more light and a better view.
Keep kitchen counters clear. Even a small kitchen looks roomier when counters aren’t cluttered. Again, we don’t live like this, so it can be difficult to keep your house in show condition all the time. Have a plan for showing.
The same is true for the yard area around your house. Buyers want to see how they will live on you property and in your cabin or house. “Curb appeal” is always important because it is the first impression buyers have when coming to see your house. First impressions are lasting impression. Your realtor can help you understand the buyer’s perspective. Just a few simple changes can make a big difference.
Your Blue ridge realtor can also help you understand the current market dynamics to help you sell your property. Some of those market dynamics is how your house compares to others in the same price range. Getting your house ready to sell means letting buyers see the best your property has to offer. Help them by de-cluttering both inside and out so they can see themselves living there. Blue Ridge Realty has the experience and expertise to help you get your house ready to sell.
