Selling and Presenting a House in 2015

Published on June 22nd, 2015

Times are changing and selling a house in 2015 is much different than it was just a few years ago. Want a tip for selling your house more efficiently?  Acknowledge these differences.

Focus on your online presence

Initially, buyers check the internet for information on houses for sale. Take this opportunity to make sure the information about your house is complete with high quality pictures. Buyers tend to ignore alerts when the information about a listing is incomplete and/or without pictures.

Many people search for homes using mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets. For best results, make sure you optimize your listing information and photos so it is accessible to mobile device users.

Depersonalize your home

Buyers are not interested in looking at your children’s artwork (although we’re sure it’s wonderful) or family photos. During a showing prospective buyers want to picture themselves living in the house. Having potential buyers surrounded with your family photos makes it hard for them to do.

Have an updated kitchen

Most real estate professionals agree that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house when it comes to presenting your home to potential buyers. Make sure the colors are modern, try to have updated appliances, the room is clean, and everything functions as it should.

Present a clean and maintained bathroom

Buyers are immediately turned off by houses that have the appearance of being dirty. A few simple steps can help create the appearance of a clean house. An area you should really focus on is the bathroom. Caulking the tub and re-grouting the tile floor will make a huge difference!

Overall, selling your home in this day in age does not have to be a stressful ordeal. Follow these tips to sell your home to the perfect buyer and stay up to date on the evolving real estate industry.
