Before Selling My House

What Do I Do Before Selling a House?

1. Selling a House?  Talk to Lezamiz Real Estate Company.  Your real estate agent should be someone you feel comfortable working with, whom you trust to sell your house for top dollar. We are one of the top rated Real Estate Companies in Twin Falls Idaho. Consider your curb appeal. Yes, for better or worse, buyers do tend to judge a book by its cover. You want to make sure potential buyers’ first impression of your home is a good one—and inspires them to stop by the open house or schedule a tour—so they can see more. Declutter living areas. Do a clean sweep of counters, windowsills, tables, and all other visible areas, and then tackle behind closed doors: closets, drawers, and cupboards—since virtually nothing is off-limits for curious buyers. If the house is overflowing with stuff, buyers might worry that the house won’t have ample space for their own belongings. They won’t sign up to pay a mortgage if they think they’ll also have to rent a storage space. Take your excess stuff and donate it, or pack it up to be stored off-site.

Repaint My Home

Do I need to Repaint?

2.Repaint walls to neutral tones may help in selling your home. You might love that orange accent wall, but if it’s your potential buyer’s least favorite color, that could be a turnoff. You’re pretty safe with a neutral color because it’s rare that someone hates it, but the other benefit is that a light color allows [buyers] to envision what the walls would look like with the color of their choice. It’s the seller’s job to help buyers picture themselves in the house. If they don’t feel at home, they’ll probably look at other real estate options. Even if you’re not doing a full-on repainting project, pay special attention to scrubbing and then touching up baseboards, walls, and doors to make the house sparkle and look cared-for. Selling almost any home can be tricky, but selling a home with lots of little problems and small repair needs can be downright difficult. When buyers walk into an open house, or go on a home tour, they want to fall in love with the house, not add a bunch of small repairs to their to-do list.

3. When you’re Selling a House, remember that green is good: Plants create a bright and more welcoming environment. You might also want to consider a bouquet of flowers or bowl of fruit on the kitchen counter or dining table. Some plants and natural elements will impress buyers by bringing some extra color and life to your décor.

House Smells

How Do I Deal With Smells

4. Foul odors, even slight ones, can be a deal breaker, and the problem is that you might not even notice them. We recommend inviting an unbiased third party in to try to detect any pet smells or lingering odors from your kitchen. If the smells are pervasive, prepare to do some deep cleaning as many buyers are on to seller’s “masking techniques” such as candles or plug-in room deodorizers. Plus, covering up odors with a stronger scent might backfire if the buyer doesn’t like the smell of lavender or artificial citrus.

The Best Staging Tips

What About Staging?

5. Does your house scream 1985? Nothing invigorates a house like some new furnishings or a perfectly chosen mirror. The key is getting your home staged by a professional. To sell this house, stagers will evaluate the current condition and belongings in your house and determine what elements might raise the bar. They might recommend you buy or rent some items, or they might just reorganize your knickknacks and bookshelves in a whole new (that is, better) way. Stagers know the real estate market, and what sells, so it’s important to take their advice and not take offense when they make big changes. Their job is to help drum up interest from potential buyers, which is always good news to the seller.

We call you with updates on traffic to your home and buyer prospect feedback.  We can provide recommendataions for staging your home based on that feedback.

Should I Hire a Cleaning Company

Do I Need To Hire A Cleaning Company?

6. Even if you’re not worried about what buyers will think of your home’s scent or look, you want your property to look spotless. Think of it this way: You’ll probably have professional photos taken of your house when it looks its best. To sell this house, naturally, you’ll want your house to always look like it does in those pictures. When selling your home, it’s important to keep everything tidy for buyers, and you never know when a buyer is going to want to schedule a last-minute tour. Remember to take special care with the bathroom, making sure the tile, counters, shower, and floors shine. If you have the extra funds and have no time to clean, hiring a specialty home cleaning company could do the trick. Just make sure when they are done you are able to keep it clean till you sell.

How do I know if I'm ready?

How Do I Know I Am Ready To Sell?

7You’ll save yourself a lot of time later if you don’t start the process of selling your house before you know for sure if you’re ready for it. Here are a few questions to ask yourself: Have I built up enough equity in this house to sell? If you owe more than your house is now worth, it might be better to wait. Can I afford the costs of selling a home? Getting your home ready to sell and hiring the right people to help come with costs. Am I ready to leave this home behind? Homeowners tend to love their homes. Make sure you’re emotionally ready to let go. If space or functionality is the issue with the house, is buying new the smartest financial move? Sometimes taking out loans for renovations can be a better fit for you than a bigger mortgage. If you’re a yes, it could be time to go for it.
