Three Tips for Selling Your Home This Summer

Here at Main Line Homes, we provide exceptional services to clients that are looking to buy or sell real estate across the Philadelphia Main Line area. Our expert guidance helps clients to identify and achieve their real estate goals. We utilize knowledge of local market trends to provide customers with the best possible experience and results throughout their real estate transactions.

 

With summertime upon us, we've decided to share our expert tips on selling homes across the warmer months.

Maintain Outdoor Areas and Landscapes

When a prospective buyer views your property, they will be paying attention to the condition of the outdoor space. Front yards are particularly important. As customers approach your home, they will notice how well this area is maintained, and if the flower beds or gardens are looking healthy. You don't need to be a professional landscaper, but it helps if you manage the lawn, keep the weeds down, and plant a few flowers that have some color. There is nothing worse than approaching a home with overgrown grass and untidy garden areas.

Declutter

While clutter is inevitable inside all homes, when showing a property, you need to demonstrate all available space. Every single square foot counts for potential home buyers. You don't need to throw the clutter away; you can rent a storage space. By getting rid of this clutter, you will be able to request the best possible price for your property.

Clean the Property

The type of buyer that looks for a dirty, cluttered home is often a low bidder looking to find a cheap property. These bargain hunters will never give you the payment you want or expect for selling your property. The reason people bid low on homes that are in bad shape is so that they can fix them and sell them for a profit. This profit will be more valuable in your pocket. One of the cheapest ways to increase the value of your property is to clean it  — inside and out.

 

Potential buyers are looking for a home that they can move into and instantly feel comfortable; they want a place where they envision their family being relaxed and happy. Clean homes are a priority for these buyers.
