Many people are trying to boost home’s value before a sale, adding improvements that they think will earn them a few extra grand. As an experienced real estate executive, the advice that Adam Hochfelder offers here arises from practice, and even though there are some properties which because of certain disadvantage are harder to sell, these simple tips can help you make an easier sell.
According to Hochfelder (see his Angel.co profile), 32% of recent home sales were on the market for less than a month. So if other homeowners can do it, then so can you. With these simple tips, you will sell your home in record time. First and most important, make sure the house is a great condition. Move all of the unnecessary furniture, boxes and other items, that occupy space. Once you’ve done that, next you should revive the walls, adding some color and freshness. If there are some repairmen that need to be fixed such as a leaking faucet or a towel rail, do not forget to fix them. If a lock or a catch is not working properly, either secure it or replace it with a new one. Paint the floor with some fresh color, if the doorbell is not working buy a new one, change those few tiles that have started to peel off, or any other small but important details that won’t cost much, but can make a potential buyer get a wrong image. Such tiny tricks can create a welcoming environment that will easily make buyers see the house as their own.
When you are all set and ready to let customers in the apartment, make sure that you’ve taken care of even the smallest details in the house. Clean the house thoroughly in order to look representative and exude purity and freshness. Some of those who have already sold an apartment on LinkedIn or Instagram reveal to Hochfelder that they have used the trick of freshly made coffee or a beautiful flower arrangement. Such small details give potential buyers a positive feeling and inspire them to feel welcomed.
If you have passed all these stages pointed by Adam Hochfelder, then your apartment is ready for sale. This means that you will be able to get the maximum price, although you shouldn’t simply rely on these tricks, because there are many factors that affect the price. In addition to the property’s appearance, it is important where it is located, the arrangement and the appearance of the entire building, and even the neighborhood.
