Selling your home can be stressful but, whatever you do, don’t let your home reflect this! Here at Vargas real estate, we have some great advice for you to help you sell your home as fast was possible. 

The first step is to depersonalize your home and to declutter. A problem that many homes in Canada have but, if you are really serious about selling, it needs to be done. Anything that can be packed away in boxes (and out of sight) must be removed before potential buyers arrived. Additionally, always ensure that your beds are always made and that you never have dirty dishes or laundry hanging out to dry.

Home buyers usually want a home that they can move into and enjoy. If not, they will try and negotiate and offer you a lower price. You therefore need to ensure that your entire home is in tip-top condition and that even the tiniest tweaks are fixed. You’d be surprised at the difference it makes!

We all value our privacy but if this is at the cost of a great view of amazing lighting, consider compromising when selling your home. For example, net curtains or blinds that hide a beautiful view or block natural light from coming into a room may just mean the difference between a “yes” or a “no”.

When selling your home, now is the time to turn that upstairs junk room into a room with a purpose. A potential buyer will have a hard time envisioning the room as a study or office if it is filled with junk so create the vision for them! Declutter and place a table and chair to place the picture in your buyer’s head!

Revamping your home before selling does not need to cost an arm and a leg. It usually just requires a bit of spring cleaning and fixing up and before you know it, your house is sold!
