Putting your home on the market is very exciting. Seeing that "For Sale" sign in your yard can stir a lot of emotions, but if you are still seeing that sign in your yard after months and months, it can be less exciting and more anxiety-riddled feelings. Showing after showing without anyone putting in a bid on your home can make you feel defeated, but there may be things you can do to help prevent this from happening to you.
Talk To Your Realtor
Ask your realtor for suggestions about what you can do to make your home sell quicker. There may be a few things you can do in order to spruce your home a bit more to make it more appealing to a potential buyer. It may simply be adding a few flowers by your front door, or you may need to do something more such as painting the interior. Ask your realtor about what some of the potential buyers coming to look at your home are saying and use this feedback to help make changes and to sell your home.
Look At Other Homes
Look around at other homes in your neighborhood that have been selling to see how their homes may differ from yours. Also go to other open houses to see what the inside of other homes for sale look like. This can help you get an idea of what other homes look like and what else you may be able to do to your own home to make your home more appealing to others.
Remove Some Personal Belongings
Take out some of the personal belongings in your home to help a potential buyer see your home, as opposed to focusing on your collection of rare dolls. This may be all a buyer remembers about your home, so take out these types of belongings and make your home a little more minimalist in your decor. Remove photos of your family, remove collectibles and other things hanging on the wall or lining your shelves. Remove excess decor on your furniture, and remove some of the furniture as well to make rooms appear larger.
If you are going to be selling your home, you want to be excited about that "For Sale" sign in your yard, not have it be a reminder that your home has been on the market for far too long. Talk to your home selling realtor about what else can be done to help get your home sold.
