7 things to think about marketing your home

1. Designing Your Home To Sell

When designing your home, think about how buyers want to live in their homes. If they’re looking for a quiet place to relax after work, then make sure your home doesn’t have any noise-producing appliances like dishwashers or washing machines. If they’d rather entertain guests, make sure your kitchen is well-equipped with plenty of seating space. And if they’re interested in having a family, consider adding a playroom or even a backyard oasis.

2. Make Sure You Have Enough Storage Space

If you’re selling a house with lots of storage space, buyers might assume that you’ve had time to organize everything. But if you don’t have enough room to store things away, buyers may wonder what else you haven’t gotten around to doing. So, make sure you have enough closets and cabinets to keep everything neat and tidy.

3. Consider Adding A Garage

A garage adds value to a home and makes it easier for potential buyers to imagine themselves living there. However, garages aren’t just useful for cars—they can also be great places to store extra furniture and other items.

4. Add A Deck Or Patio

Deck or patio spaces add curb appeal and give buyers a chance to get a feel for the size of the yard before they step foot inside the home. If you’re selling in a hot real estate market, consider putting in a deck or patio to help sell faster.

5. Create An Open Floor Plan

Open floor plans are popular among homeowners today, especially those who enjoy entertaining. But if you’re planning on selling your home, you should avoid open floor plans. Buyers often prefer closed rooms where they can focus on one task at a time.

6. Keep Up With Maintenance

You wouldn’t buy a car without checking its maintenance records first, so why would you buy a home without inspecting its history? Before you list your home for sale, check out the property report to find out whether anything major has been reported to local authorities. Also, take care of any minor repairs yourself before listing your home.

7. Get Rid Of Clutter

Clutter can distract buyers from the beauty of your home, so try to remove it whenever possible. If you’ll be moving soon, go ahead and clean out your closet, basement, attic, and garage. If you’ve got a lot of stuff stored in your garage, consider renting a U-Haul truck to move it.
