Did you hear that? Prices of houses in Phoenix have been jumping 5% each month for 2005 according to market experts! Some predict that the price of housing could jump to an additional 10% for the upcoming year. The shortage of houses for sales and the still relatively low interest rates are causing the price of homes in Phoenix but nationwide to escalate. What does this mean? If you are thinking about selling your home, there is no better time than the present. Jump on the bandwagon!
Okay, great, you say. I'll buy a for-sale-by-owner sign, set it out in the front yard, host it at open-house this weekend. I should have my house sold by the end of next week! Well, two months later, that for-sale-by-owner sign is silent in the front and you donâ € ™ t have a buyer. Do not think that just because there is a shortage of houses for sale, selling a house is a piece of cake. It may not be as easy as you think. Instead of using a realtor, you are determined to sell the house yourself. That's fine and it's possible. People do it all the time; however, what are some tips to help you prepare your house to sell. I have done the research and found four minimal-cost tips in preparing your sell:
1. Clean-up. The first impression is always the lasting one. You want to be able to buy your house from the street. Everything from the yard, to the windows, to every room inside should be squeaky clean. Stuff, it & # 39; s distracting to the buyer and really takes away the beauty of your home. If you can not part with those items, pack them away in boxes. A potential buyer will not be released by a few packed boxes in the house. They are likely to be looking forward to moving anyway.
2. Deodorize. This goes hand in hand with cleaning your house and removing the clutter. If your house smells, it won't sell. If the house has been vacant for a while, there is nothing more offensive to a potential buyer than the smell of mildew. Please take care of the mildew before showing the house. And you petowners, understand that your precious pets are not odor-less. You just got accustomed to the smell. A potential buyer wants to pick up the pet order immediately. The same is true for cigarettes.
3. Re-paint the house. Okay, you may have enjoyed a blue kitchen, orange living room, and a red bathroom. But your potential buyer may not be as cutting-edge. Experts agree that neutral colors are best in showcasing your house. So take a second look at the decorations on the wall. Remove anything that could be offensive to your potential buyer.
4. Embrace the sun. I do not care for the Phoenix heat, but I love the sun. It symbolizes laughter, happiness, brightness, things that are upbeat and positive. Open the blinds and curtain in your house and let the sunshine in!
Remember, you want to impress the potential buyer. By following these four simple tips, you can reduce the time it takes to sell your house.
