With the busy home-selling season upon us, you have to make your house stand out from the competition if you want to sell more quickly. Putting your home in the best possible light and getting the word out will ensure that your house moves quickly and that you get the most money out of it. Here are four killer tips for selling your home faster and for top dollar.

Make it Smell Great

The powerful sense of smell can play a hand in how quickly your home sells. The scent of the home is one of the first things that people notice when they walk through the door. Make this impression count by taking the time to ensure that your home smells good. You want to avoid scents that are too powerful and instead focus on smells that convey cleanliness or a sense of home. Scents to consider include clean linen sprays or fresh-baked cookies.

Freshen Up the Paint Job

A fresh coat of paint on the interior and exterior of the home instantly makes it look newer. It’s generally better to choose subtle, natural colors since trendy colors come and go too fast. You want people to notice the details and features of your home and not to be fixated on the colors. Shades of beige, cream, and gray are all good color choices when looking to be neutral.

Depersonalize Your Home

The ultimate goal when showing your home is to set the stage so that prospective buyers can easily imagine themselves living in the house. To do this, you need to depersonalize the home. This includes removing personal photographs and other mementos from the entirety of your house. You also need to remove personal hygiene items and keep kitchen essentials out of view. For a functional and aesthetically pleasing fix, install storage and sliding barn doors that can work to hide items from view. In addition to helping with staging, more storage space is always a plus for potential buyers. 

Harness the Power of Social Media

In today’s increasingly wired world, it makes sense to leverage the power of social media to get the word out about your house. Do not be shy about posting your home listing and encouraging your connections to share the information. You can reach an exponential number of prospective buyers by tapping into this resource.

Understanding the local market and putting that knowledge to use will help you to price it to sell quickly. With the right staging and proper promotion, you can put your home listing in the best position to succeed.
