Viewing your Home From a Buyer’s Perspective
There’s an adage in marketing and sales: You need to put yourself in the customer’s shoes before attempting to sell something. You will need to do the same thing when it’s time to sell your house. Imagine that you are the prospective buyer, and then see your home from that perspective.
Start with what a buyer sees first, from the curb outside your house. Does your home look attractive and inviting? Are there ways from this vantage point that you can enhance the look of your home?
It could be as easy as the hedges being trimmed.
Then, through the main door, step into your house. What’s the first feeling you got? Does your home look tidy from the foyer, uncluttered, and appealing? To enhance the look, is there something you can do?
Even a minor change, such as moving a coat rack that clutters the room, will improve considerably.
Tour the rest of your home at last. Many home buyers visit the kitchen, dining room, and other rooms on the first floor and then check out the bedrooms upstairs. What feeling do you get when you pretend to be a potential buyer and look around? What characteristics are you particularly fond of? What do you dislike? Are there problems that bother you?
Don’t forget to look at your backyard and garage as well.
You’ll see what improvements and upgrades can make your home display better by completing this easy exercise.
