Make it look pretty attractive:
Curtains and plants are among the most common accessories to put in the interior of the house to make it look pretty. You don’t have to buy branded and expensive ones. There are cheap ones that can blend well into the interior design of your homes.
You can also dress up the house with fresh flowers and plants, or put a bowl of fresh fruits over the table. Frames and colorful decorations may do, but you may opt to take them away to allow the buyer to conceptualize their own design.
Fix the broken ones:
Check the old faucet or the broken door lock or the dripping sink if repair is enough or they need replacement already. Minor repairs should be addressed properly before selling the house. Everything that needs to be fixed has to be checked and completed before the buyers come and view the house. It there are major repairs to be done, disclose it to the buyer and let them decide if they want to remodel or renovate it depending on their style.
Clean the entire house:
Aside from making it sparkling clean, make sure that your personal belongings should be out of the way. De-clutter the house of your things but leave some that will accessorize the house for a pleasant interior. Let the potential buyer think and feel that he is viewing a model house. Even the gardens and yards should be tidied up and cleaned to make it more attractive.
Make the house smell fresh and clean:
A clean house is perfect, but if the smell of the chlorine lingers, it may disturb the potential buyers when they come and view the house. Let the house smell fresh for a while before you open it for buyers. There may be other sources of bad smell in the house. Fix it properly instead of covering the house with air freshener or perfume. Simple cleaning of drains, washing of sheets, and getting rid of stinky furniture may help as well.
Liven up the house with a lick of new paint:
A fresh lick of paint will lighten up the house. It will also make the house look bigger and brighter. Your house will sell faster if it looks fresh and bright inside and out. You may not have to paint the whole house to cut the expense, but make sure that the important areas are properly or evenly painted to make it look attractive to the buyers when they visit the house.
