Selling Secret #10: Pricing it right
Find out what your home is worth, then shave 15 to 20 percent off the price. You’ll be stampeded by buyers with multiple bids — even in the worst markets — and they’ll bid up the price over what it’s worth. It takes real courage and most sellers just don’t want to risk it, but it’s the single best strategy to sell a home in today’s market.
Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets
Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.
Selling Secret #8: Light it up
Maximize the light in your home. After location, good light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable.
Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field
A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong broker. Make sure you have a broker who is totally informed. They must constantly monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what properties are going on the market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find a broker who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold.
Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters
You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning an open house, send the critters to a pet hotel for the day.
Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade
Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your money back if you do a huge improvement project before you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.
Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house
One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Consider hiring a home stager to maximize the full potential of your home. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.
Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first
You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people see one high-end appliance they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen.
Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show
Your house needs to be "show-ready" at all times – you never know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You have to be available whenever they want to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.
Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the only impression
No matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. It’s important to make people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. You can typically get a 100-percent return on the money you put into your home’s curb appeal. Entryways are also important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by putting in a small bench, a vase of fresh-cut flowers or even some cookies.

Painting can dramatically change the look of a space, enhancing its aesthetics and possibly even making it look more spacious. Painting is one of the most popular do-it-yourself jobs of home owners, and while it’s one of the easiest too, there is an art to painting.
The Paint Quality Institute offers up some of the following tips in prepping the walls to make sure a home owner’s paint job doesn’t end up looking like an unprofessional DIY job:
–Repair surface imperfections. Use a spackling compound to fill any cracks or holes so that the surface is smooth before you start painting. You can use a stain-blocking primer to repair any areas that have water stains or discoloration, according to the Paint Quality Institute.
–Clean the walls. Before you start painting, wash the walls and woodwork with a detergent-water solution. Rinse the surfaces and let them dry completely.
–Choose your paint carefully. “Top quality 100 percent acrylic latex paints resist spattering, tend to conceal brush marks, and do a better job of hiding the color underneath,” according to the Paint Quality Institute. “They also are tougher and more durable, with better long-term resistance to fading, yellowing, and staining.”
Also, home owners will want to carefully choose the sheen and gloss level of their paint. In general, the higher the gloss on a paint, the easier the paint will be to clean. High-gloss finishes, therefore, tend to be a popular choice in bathrooms and high-traffic areas. The highest gloss paints may be best reserved for entry doors and a home’s trim.
The downside to high gloss paint is that it can highlight imperfections in a wall. It’s highly reflective so it can makes any flaws much more noticeable.
On the opposite side of the spectrum from gloss are flat paints. These are non-reflective so it can make minor imperfections in walls less noticeable and make walls appear more smooth. They are often popular choices for ceilings or surfaces that a home owner may want to downplay. The big negative to flat paints: They’re not easy to clean and any dirt can easily become trapped in it.
These are the most popular sheen level choices on paint — from highest sheen to lowest: Gloss, semigloss, satin, eggshell, and then flat or matte.
–Use high-quality brushes and rollers. Not all paint brushes are the same. The best brushes tend to have tightly packed bristles, which will help them hold more paint on it. The Paint Quality Institute recommends using brushes and rollers with synthetic bristles and covers when applying latex, water-based paints. These types of brushes and rollers are more likely to maintain their shape, regardless of how much water they get on them.
–Get straight edges. Using “painters tape” may be a good idea in order to make sure you stay inside the lines. You can use tape to mask off areas to also ensure you get a straight line when painting. Take your time taping, however. Also, be sure to press the tape down firmly so no paint can creep in underneath the tape. Once the paint is dried, peel the tape away immediately.
