Congratulations! You’ve decided to sell your house in Jacksonville and are ready to buy a new one. There’s only one problem. You have to sell your current home to buy another. And you need to sell fast! There are ways to make small but powerful changes in your home to get it to sell quicker. And the best part is all it takes is your time, no money involved. So here are 4 free tricks to sell your home faster in Jacksonville!
When a buyer walks into your home, they are imagining how they space will work for them. They are looking at how their furniture and belongings will work in your home. Start by looking at places where it’s easy to throw stuff down and forgetting about it. Kitchen and bathroom counters, fireplace mantles, dining room tables, foyers etc. Remove anything that doesn’t have to be in there. It may be worth while to get a storage unit if you have too much stuff.
Not sure if homey is a real word but think inviting smells for your home. Smells like vanilla, cookies, warm apple pie are some good ones to use. You want buyers to walk in and feel at home. Using air fresheners and candles can help create an inviting smell. Also fresh flowers can add to the ambiance. Not only are they beautiful to look at but they smell so good!
Clean freaks unite
Here is where some extra time and elbow grease can go a long way. Buyer notice things like dirty baseboards and windows. And once they start to see dirt, they start to think this isn’t the house for them. So the best way to avoid these thoughts are to deep clean your house. I mean top to bottom, windows, baseboards, appliances, blinds, you name it! You want buyers to feel comfortable when they walk in and not be thinking how gross your home is.
Stage a little
No you don’t have to go out and spend a ton of money on a professional stager and furniture (if you can afford it, always go that route). Small things like setting the table with some nice plates and wine glasses can do the trick. Staging helps a buyer see how the space will work for them and if your family eats dinner at that table, so can theirs. Even moving some furniture around in the living room to provide a more open concept will help. Also, allow all natural light to flow in. Buyers love open, bright spaces.
