Are you planning on selling anytime soon? If so, stick around to learn this overlooked secret to making your home stand out to buyers. So, what one thing can you do to make your home stand out above all the other houses you’re competing against?
It’s important to remember that most buyers don’t just see one house in a day – they’ll see as many as 10 homes in a single tour. This makes it crucial that you do what it takes to make your home make a lasting impression on the mind of a potential buyer. What exactly should you do to make this happen?
It sounds obvious, but you would be surprised how many buyers don’t do it. The most important thing you can do to make your home stand out is clean your house! We’re not talking about wiping down the counters and picking up a few things. Rather, we’re talking about a DEEP clean, where you either get your knees dirty and put in a whole lot of work or hire a professional cleaning company.
There is nothing more inviting to potential buyers than an impeccably clean home. You would be shocked by the number of homes I visit that are not only not clean, but downright dirty. If you want to really make your home stand out from the crowd, you need to take your cleaning above and beyond. To do this, you need to eliminate pet odors, cigarette smoke, and ethnic cooking smells that may hit the buyer’s senses in the wrong way. This may sound crazy, but it’s true: Smells keep homes from selling!
