Home Selling Tips
HouseMaster is the most experienced name in home inspections. More sellers and real estate professionals turn to HouseMaster for tips on how to sell homes quickly and for the most profit than any other home inspection franchise organization. To help you prepare your home for sale, below are some of our best Home Selling Tips:
- Home Selling Tip #1. Get your home inspected before the buyer comes along. By having your home inspected up front, you will minimize last minute surprises that could either jeopardize a deal or result in costly renegotiations.
- Home Selling Tip #2. Spruce up and de-clutter. Buyers cannot always see past your personal belongings, especially if your home is cluttered with them. Start boxing up your personal belongings and tossing unwanted items before you show the home. Paint where needed and make minor repairs. Eliminating as many buyer turn offs will increase the likelihood of a good offer.
- Home Selling Tip #3. Do not take it personally. One of the best home selling tips is to think like the professionals. Every day, relocation professionals purchase homes from transferring employees, have them inspected, and then make the needed repairs and put the home back on the market. Studies show that these homes sell faster and at a higher percentage of their original listing price. Remember, when it's time to move on; move on!
- Home Selling Tip #4. Home selling tip number 4 goes hand in hand with home selling tip number 3. Do not get insulted. When you receive a low offer or a demand for repairs, simply counter offer or say no. More deals are lost over minor squabbles and misinterpretations than need to be.
These are just a few of HouseMaster's most important home selling tips. To find more tips and helpful information, browse our entire website, especially our Home Sellers section.
