If you own dogs, minimize the time that they spend in your house. This ensures that they do not create unwanted odors indoors. Even small dogs will produce odor; even if you don’t notice it, potential buyers unaccustomed to the smell might. It would also be a good idea to use some kind of carpet freshener regularly to remove as many odors as possible. Even better, have your carpets and large rugs professionally shampooed before potential buyers view the home. A potential buyer will be more likely to be impressed by a home that smells clean and fresh.
The more years you spend in a house, the more likely you are to have accumulated a great deal of stuff. Once an owner gets accustomed to the clutter in their home, it can be difficult to emotionally detach from it. When it’s time to put your home on the market, it’s a good idea to get someone else’s opinion to help you decide what needs to go and help you get rid of it.
Before you attempt to sell any type of office building, parking lot, or another type of commercial property, you should first consult with a professional real estate agent, specializing in commercial property. You can be dealing with a retail location, general purpose office space, or a restaurant. Experienced commercial real estate agents will be able to understand your needs and connect with buyers who will be more likely to purchase your property. If any part of your home is unusable as is, you should think about completely remodeling it. Many inexperienced real estate investors spend way too much time and money on senseless remodels. Try to make the best of the interior you have to increase your profit margins. You are better off presenting a clean and tidy yard, than a heavily landscaped one when you are trying to sell your home. The next owners might decide to change the landscape completely and your hard work will become useless. Stick with the mature landscaping plants that have been in your yard for years, and have the lawn freshly mowed.
