Seller Tips for those selling in Cascade County real estate area
1) Clear the Clutter! - Buyers will quickly be turned off to a cluttered and crowded home. Pack your personal mementos, pictures and family heirlooms away. Let the buyer envision their belongings in your house. Pack and store knickknacks, collections, and extra furniture or appliances to make your rooms feel open and spacious. Items sitting on horizontal surfaces should be kept to a minimum.
Real Estate agents nationwide suggest the use of self-storage facilities to accomplish this important "De-Clutter" process. Use a self storage facility's storage unit to hold your items because an empty-looking attic, basement and garage make the entire house seem larger. "Clear the Clutter" and make your home look and feel more spacious.
2) A View from the Curb - Curb appeal does sell homes. Before a buyer has even stepped out of their car, they have formed an impression. A well-kept garden, pathway and fence are immediately appealing to home buyers. Mow the lawn frequently; weed the gardens and repair any fixtures (lamp posts, mailbox or birdbath).
3) The Front Door Makes The First Impression - A clean or freshly painted front door with clean glass will welcome the home buyer. Be sure any squeaky hinges are oiled and insure the doorbell's proper operation.
4) It Sells Itself! - Record an answering machine message with the full details of your home. Let your home keep selling itself even when you're not home. An answering machine with Caller ID is ideal, so you can return the call when you return back home.
5) Do You Do Windows? - Clean every window in your home. Everything looks brighter and the window coverings are more attractive when the windows are clean. During a showing, let the sun shine in by opening the drapes and blinds. Close the blinds and turn on extra lights for night showings. A room looks much cozier with table lamps rather than bright general lighting.
6) The Kitchen and Baths Sell the Home! - A scrupulously clean kitchen and sparkling bathrooms are a must when selling your home. Kitchen counters must be clean and uncluttered; pantry and cabinets organized; all appliances must be spic and span. Some buyers judge the whole house by the condition of the oven/stove top. Food areas must be clean and fresh. Even if you're taking the refrigerator with you, it must be spotless. People will look!
For the bath, a special "home-showing" set of fresh towels can help to freshen up the room before a viewing. Keep personal items (razors, toothbrushes, shampoos) out of site but keep a couple of quality products on display. Replace half-used soap with new bars. Revitalize a tired bathroom with a green leafy plant and new taps, shower curtain and light pull. All these items can be picked up cheaply from DIY warehouses.
7) Fresh Flowers and a Fresh Scent - The smell of freshly baked cookies conjure the feeling of "home" during a showing. But in truth, most buyers simply like the smell of a freshly cleaned and aired room. Open the windows every day to bring fresh air into the house. Choose cleaning products with a 'natural' rather than a harsh chemical smell. Avoid cooking foods such as fish or curry before a viewing as the smell will linger. Hide the kitty litter and ask your neighbor to look after the pets during the showing.
8) Hiding your Stuff - During a showing, narrow down your prospects by asking if they're pre-qualified for a mortgage equal to your asking price. After asking a few questions, let the buyer inspect your home on their own. Also, never apologize for the appearance of your home. No home is perfect and you're not hiding anything by keeping your comments to yourself.
In the event if one is given a choice between bankruptcy and debt consolidation, one should avoid bankruptcy. Declaring bankruptcy may damage ones credit score and credit history.
