If you are selling your Incline Village, NV real estate, you may be looking at your home and seeing all the flaws that would prohibit a fast sale for the most money from happening. You may feel, compared to other homes for sale in Incline Village, NV, the home is dark, the rooms are small, and the spaces need to be updated. Instead of focusing on the negative, work with your Incline Village, NV Realtor on how to enhance the positive. Your perceived flaws may not be a deal breaker for a buyer. They may see a new challenge or a fresh space that is perfect for them. Here are some tips to stay focused and positive during the selling process.
Focusing on the positive may seem hard during the busy, and sometimes stressful, selling process. However, if your house has some features that you know buyers are looking for in homes for sale in Incline Village, NV, make sure that is front and center. Is your home small but has a huge front and back yard perfect for entertaining? Work on the curb appeal and make sure it stands out. Renovated kitchen? Be sure to keep people focused on that space with cookies and beverages during a showing. Whatever it is that your home has, work with your Incline Village, NV Realtor to highlight it during showings and in the marketing.
Speaking of curb appeal, even if you don’t have a spacious outdoor area, you still want to make sure you are impressing buyers when they show up. If they like what they see when they pull up, they are usually pretty excited to see what it inside. You can spruce up the curb appeal pretty easily, and affordably, too. Clear the lawn of clutter, add a fresh coat of paint where needed, make sure windows are clean and shutters aren’t looking shabby.
Have a focal point in each room and create a calm atmosphere. So the living room is really teeny but you have a gorgeous fireplace? Make that the focal point. If you have high ceilings, place vertical art that shows off just how much height the rooms have to offer. Your Incline Village, NV Realtor can come up with some tips and tricks of the trade to help you figure out what each room’s focal point should be. Do you have some nearby noise like highway traffic, loud neighbors or planes cruising overhead? Talk with your Realtor about different sounds or solutions that could cover that up or distract from them.
Still feeling like these solutions aren’t enough for your personal situation? Get some estimates from trusted vendors on what the cost would be to fix and share it with the buyers if it is something that is super affordable. Or chat with your Realtor about adding a “gift with purchase”. While not all Real Estate Pro’s recommend this, if you have a nearby local business you love, you could have a gift card or offer to pay for a month of snow removal, use of the local golf course, etc.
