Are you Thinking About Selling?

Are you thinking about selling your home? If and when you are, there are several things that will not help you sell your hme.

Don't over improve.
While you're sprucing up your home for sale you will make a greater return on your investment if you do make some changes like updating appliances or replacing broken cabinets in a bathroom. Remember to not over-improve however. Finishing a space to your taste with color or function will probably not bring bring the return that you're looking for.

Don't over decorate,
Choose neutral colors and schemes, to appeal to the greatest number of potential buyers. Pink and lace may not make the impression that you would like.

Don't hang around.
You will want the buyers to imagine themselves living in the space so don't hang around when your home is getting shown to potential buyers. Leave and take the dog and the kids with you! You'll make buyers uncomfortable if they think you're watching and making judgements while they're in your home.

Don't take things personally. 
Remember that selling a home is personal for you but real estate is a business. Don't be offended when you get a low offer or the buyer asks for money to replace carpets.
