Getting Your Home Ready for Buyer Inspection

On Behalf of | Jul 29, 2015 | Firm News |

Don’t let the sale process of your home intimidate you into taking a back seat in the sale process.  Remember, this is your investment – so get involved. All potential buyers will be aware of the importance of a home inspection prior to purchase, so why not take some small steps to speed up the sale of your home.  In this post, Thompson Law Group, PC & Home Key Title Closing, Inc. will share some ideas on on how you can make your home more appealing to buyers.

How to Make Your Home More Appealing to Buyers

Make Your Home Stand Out

When looking to sell your home, take a look around your neighborhood and compare how your home compares to similar houses in your area. The purpose of this isn’t to decide the value of your home, but rather to see what these houses have in common with yours. If you find that your house looks very similar to surrounding houses in your neighborhood, consider small aesthetic changes that you can make to really make your house stand out. When choosing changes be sure they complement the existing look and feel of your home and attachments.

Cleaning Your Home for Potential Buyers

While this may seem simple enough, many sellers forget how important a clean home is to potential buyers. Whilst you may be under the impression that your home needs to look immaculate, this is not always necessary. Remember, when potential buyers are inspecting your home they are attempting to envisage their long term lives in your property. Take steps to remove clutter and any personal items that could distract the buyer from their own perception and thought flow.  In addition, be careful of any repair work that you may have completed yourself in your home. Prior to buyers inspecting your property, see if these repairs can’t be professionally completed or can be cleaned up to be more presentable.

Remember that any buyers are likely to perform a title search for the purpose of obtaining title insurance in Westborough, MA.  Should this occur, be transparent with the buyer about any previous owner history.  This will help to speed up the sale process.
