Preparing an apartment for sale is a serious moment, but many do not pay due attention to this. Real estate experts suggest a number of tips on how to quickly and profitably sell an apartment.
- Determining the price
You can refer to the property evaluation companies. They will professionally calculate the cost of housing with formulas and examples. You will get a large report on many pages, where the rationale price for the apartment will be presented.
- Making correct photos
They are best to be done in daylight on a quality camera. The photos should be presentable and give a complete picture of the apartment. Dark, vague pictures of the housing such a presentation will not give. As an option, you can invite the professional photographer.
- Looking for a zest
Each apartment has some features that can attract buyers. Find these zests. It can be a beautiful view from the window, a large balcony, a kindergarten or a school nearby, and a cozy green courtyard. List these advantages in the ad. They will be an argument in favor of your price and simply attract the attention of buyers.
- More light!
Making an apartment more pleasant for the eyes is a must. You can just play with the light. Dark housing mostly causes depressive thoughts that certainly will not lead to the desire to buy it. Clean windows and a lot of light are your loyal friends in selling the apartment!
- Cleaning the rooms
It would seem that the advice is in the style of “captain obvious”. But some sellers neglect this factor. Dusty curtains, grandmother’s furniture, and dirty floors can scare away even the most undemanding buyer. Realtors say that for buyers is especially important … the front door. If it is in poor condition and there is no money to change it, then at least wash it off.
- No personal stuff
Before viewing, try to free the apartment from personal belongings. Your favorite vases are expensive only for you. The buyers may have their own preferences. And of course, you need to hide personal items away from prying eyes. Let the buyer, in his imagination, already draw himself as the owner Realtors advise removing from the apartment extra people, as well as animals. It is better that one of the owners was present at the showing.
If you look gloomy, inhospitable, and mumble something unintelligible about the reasons for selling – it will alienate many people. A positive and open person, ready to show everything, tell about himself (in moderation), causes more trust and desire to make a deal with him.
