Welcome to the final part of our two-part series on how to sell your home for top dollar in FSBO. In the last video, we reviewed five steps in order to make the most of the deal in order to make more money in your pocket. Here are five more tips to do the same thing that people don’t often think about when selling their home on their own that will benefit you in the home selling process. Hi, I’m Rich Barnes, owner-broker of Realty Experts in West Allis, Wisconsin, 53214. Tip number six, remove or replace favorite items. If you plan on taking certain window coverings or fixtures with you, remove them prior to showing the house. Tip number seven, make minor repairs. In some seller’s market, you can sell a home in a lived-in condition without much complaint. But in normal markets or a buyer’s market, repairs that can make or break a sale can be done very affordably and will end up making you more money if they’re done. You want to replace cracked floors or countertops and patch any holes in the walls, fix leaky faucets and doors that don’t close properly, and as well as kitchen drawers that jam. Consider painting walls neutral colors, especially if they’re currently hot pink or purple if you want the buyer’s experience to be a positive as possible. Tip number eight, make the house sparkle. Preparing your home to be viewed by potential buyers may require hiring a professional cleaning company. Cleaning may include washing the windows inside and out; renting a pressure washer and spraying down the sidewalks and the exterior; re caulking tubs, showers, and sinks; and polishing chrome faucets and mirrors. Try to maintain the cleanliness by vacuuming daily, waxing floors, dusting furniture, and keeping the bathrooms and kitchen spotless. Hang up fresh guest towels. Kitchens are a big selling point for many buyers, so make sure yours is spotless and uncluttered as possible. All of the above, if you have pets, monitor their litter boxes and any other areas affected by pets. Tip number nine, curb appeal. A potential sale is lost quickly if the buyer won’t even get out of the agent’s car for the exterior of your home turns them off. Make the exterior more appealing and welcoming by painting the front door and perhaps adding a wreath of dried wildflowers or placing one or two flower pots on your front porch. Tip number 10, the final step, examine how their furniture is arranged and rearrange pieces until each room achieves a visual appeal. This is only the beginning of the FSBO process making an entire process of it itself.
