4 Basic Preparations for a Home Showing
All homeowners need to prep up their home to be ready for viewing before it hits the market. While some owners go the extra mile and invest on remodels and home staging services, others can just stick to the basics and be as successful with selling their home. If you want to take the practical route, you have to make sure to cover these four key areas and prep them up right for a home showing:
Substantial lighting-- ALL rooms in a house need to have natural and artificial lighting. And for artificial lighting, you need "three opints of light". One arrangement is the provision of a table lamp, floor lamp, and a task light, or an overhead light fixture with two table lamps. Bright rooms entice home buyers, so prioritize setting this up before the next three key points.
Polished floors-- selling a home doesn't mean you have to spend on having the floorboards replaced or retiled. Unless the floors are severely damaged, a professional floor buffing service might be all you need to get that attractive shine back on to your floors.
Clean bathrooms-- a sparkly and odor-free bathroom is an acceptable bathroom. Also, if you can afford small improvements such as modernized faucets, mirrors and bathroom accessories, those can help you win your home buyer's heart. The key is to present a clean bathroom that your visitors wouldn't hesitate on using-- during the home showing AND when they do decide to buy the home and live in it.
Deep cleaning-- the cleaning you need for the photo shoot is different from the cleaning you have to work on for a home showing. Make everything sparkle, and vacuum the dust. If the buyers see that the home is properly maintained, they are likely to believe that the condition of the home is well worth the price.
