Are you planning on listing your home on the Austin TX Real Estate market? If so, now is a great time for you to sell your home because demand for properties in Austin is still high and that means you could have multiple offers on your house.
What Should You Do Before Listing Your House?
Before listing your house, there are a variety of things you should do which include the following:
- Clean Everything – Yes, it’s true, you should clean the inside and outside of your home because a buyer that’s presented with a dirty home on the Austin TX Real Estate market may wonder what else is wrong with that home.
- Don’t Forget Curb Appeal – After your home is clean and in presentable condition you should take the time to clean up the outside of your house and improve curb appeal by mowing / rimming your lawn, planting new flowers and do everything you can to improve the outside appearance of your property.
- Stage Your Home – This involves removing pieces of furniture from your Austin TX home which you may not be using and leaving minimal pieces of furniture in each room of your home.
“While your home may be beautifully decorated, it still looks like your home, not the buyer's,” says Teresa Stephenson, vice president of residential brokerage at Platinum Properties in New York.
In particular, clutter can make a home feel cramped and leave a bad first impression.
“If you are going to be moving anyway, it makes perfect sense to start packing and put a lot of your current belongings in storage," says Stephenson. "You don't have to pay to have your home staged, but if you don't buy into the concept that ‘less is more,’ you'll pay when it comes time to sell."
