How to Get Buyers Interested in Your Home

Selling your home isn’t always a simple task. You need to get as many buyers through the door as possible, which means doing everything you can to get their attention. Follow these tips when preparing to sell, and you can attract more buyers to your home and complete a sale more quickly.

1. Set the right price

Listing your home at the right price point is crucial for attracting potential buyers, as it’s often the first factor buyers take into consideration when deciding which houses to view. To find the pricing sweet spot, look into how much similar houses in your neighborhood have sold for recently, study current market trends and evaluate the cost of the fixes and updates the houses needs. A real estate agent, an appraiser and even online housing calculators can help you determine the perfect listing price.

2. Master online marketing

Most buyers search for homes online first, so your home should be present on multiple listing sites, such as Trulia, Zillow,Redfin, and your agent’s website. Simply listing basic information isn’t enough, though. To make your home stand out in the sea of listings, use professional-quality photos and video tours that show off the house’s best traits. Shots of the neighborhood, including nearby restaurants, parks, and schools, are a great addition as well. House hunters want as much information as possible in online listings and the more visual elements you can give them, the better.

3. Improve curb appeal

You only get one chance to make a first impression, which is why the outside of your home should be in top condition during the selling process. Paint color, landscaping, roofing, window design and even the mailbox can influence buyers’ decisions. Take the time to apply a fresh coat of paint, mow the lawn and give your home a fresh look it needs to be memorable at first glance.

4. Clean and depersonalize

Once you’ve wowed buyers with the exterior, continue the excellent impression inside. Before taking photos for the online listing and showing the house, perform a thorough cleaning — dust, vacuum, take out the trash, etc. You should also try to remove as many personal items as possible while cleaning. Too many personal objects could make it difficult for potential buyers to imagine themselves living in the space.

With the right price, complete online listings and a clean house ready to impress, your home will stand out among its competition and grab the attention of more buyers.
