There are subtle differences in houses that sell easily and those that remain on the market for what seems like an eternity. Here are a few tips to help give you an advantage.

First, make sure the house is not only cleared of excess clutter, but that it is clean. Remember the first time your in-laws came to visit? Get it that clean as though you aim to impress. Try to keep the house picked up daily so that when someone calls to come for a quick look without much notice you won’t have much to do before its ready to show. This is hard, especially with a family, but will be worth the trouble. When someone calls with interest in seeing your house, don’t put them off until tomorrow or even for several hours while you clean up the mess. There are too many other houses on the market these days for them to look at instead and you need to catch them when they are interested.

As far as details like fragrance, lighting, and curtains opened or closed, be cognizant of the neutral atmosphere you’re trying to show off. Many people are allergic to fragrance for one thing. Another is that what you might find pleasant could be offensive to others. You prefer rose scented oils, but your home viewer can’t stand that scent and likes musky, earthy scents instead. Best to leave fragrance alone. If you’d like, turn on the stove burner and place a drop of vanilla on it for a subtle fragrance that reminds one of baking.

  • Lighting is crucial to how your house is seen.

Lighting is crucial to how your house is seen. Advertisers, television studios, film makers, entertainers, and trade show experts spend fortunes on their lighting as it is how the audience mood is set. At night, turn all of the lights on to give the house a warm, lived in glow for those driving past. If you show the house in the daytime, turn lights on in all dim areas of the house. Open all of the curtains and blinds to let in as much natural light as possible. Bright and cheery is your goal. That’s what gets buyers thinking that yours might be a great house to live in. Light your house to accentuate the better points where possible and consider your buyers to be your audience.
