Expose your home to the widest buying audience possible by showing it after it has been listed for some time. Deferred showing gives buyers plenty of time to know your home is up for sale and attracts multiple offers. Multiple offers could lead to a bidding war, and you end up selling your home at a price considerably higher than the asking price.
You will have to set up your home in a way to get buyers excited. And to achieve this, nothing should be spared in prepping your home for the showings:
1. Make sure your exterior is presentable.
Put in extra effort to prepare your home’s exterior with these tips:
2. Offer a warm welcome.
Make them feel at home with these tips:
3. Don’t skimp on heating or cooling.
Depending on the weather, ensure that the home is cooled or heated appropriately to get the most comfortable temperature. A pleasantly comfortable home lets buyers stick around much longer increasing their chances of buying.
4. Cultivate an inviting atmosphere.
An effective home staging strategy is to enhance the mood of your home by creating an inviting atmosphere:
5. Pay attention to scents.
Do not use strong scents because of individual preferences. Opening up the windows for fresh air if the weather outside allows for it could be better than using artificial fragrances
6. Brighten things up.
Turn on every light in the house to enable buyers to see every area of the home. Whenever possible, open the blinds and let natural light in. Buyers could get suspicious if there are areas of the house they can’t see well.
7. Offer snacks and refreshments.
Providing snacks and refreshments makes the buyers see the home as a place where they can live in. And no one would be in a hurry to go because they are hungry or thirsty.
8. Make sure your real estate agent has a feedback system.
Improving the showing experiences relies on getting feedback from prospects. Insist that your agents have a feedback system in place to let you know how buyers see your home.
