Letting go of your home – and selling it for a price that matches your investment – takes more than simply putting up a “for sale” sign in your front yard. If you want to make sure you’ll get a satisfactory sale, you need to implement the right strategies to make your property fetch the most ideal buyer and the best price, and ensure it won’t be sitting too long in the market. It helps to put yourself in the shoes of a potential buyer to determine the changes you need. At the same time, you need to think of yourself as a business owner coming up with ideas how best to present merchandise in the most practical and cost-efficient manner.The good news is that preparing a home for sale doesn’t always need to be costly and time-consuming. With a few strategic tweaks, there will be no need to tear down walls, embark on costly renovations or go through exhaustive re-layouts that can eat up your budget and your energy. With smart, well-planned, finely executed presale makeovers, you can dramatically change the look and feel of a home and improve its market value in a way that you would never have imagined.

Getting a presale home makeover is fast becoming a top must-do in every home seller’s checklist. The following are more reasons why you should make it your important, urgent priority:

You save time. When you’re selling a home, losing time means losing opportunities. Figuring out the changes that need to be done and then finding contractors for each and every task can be a huge time suck – which you cannot afford, especially at this time when you have a lot of other things to attend to regarding the sale. What you need is an expert who can sort out all the small and big details and come up with one holistic, efficient approach.

You save money. Home styling experts can do wonders even on your seemingly most problematic areas without busting the budget. They have the tools and the know-how to significantly transform a space through cosmetic means – a splash of colour, a new arrangement for old furniture, or the addition of some choice pieces can lift up a place and make it marketable without the need for major renovations.

You make decision-making easier for buyers. Real estate experts often say that buyers make a decision the moment they have imagined themselves to be living in the property they are viewing. Give your potential buyer’s imagination a hand by getting rid of personal items and too-specific touches that remind them that someone used to live in the place you’re selling. Offer them a neutral, attractive slate that can easily accommodate their vision of a new life in a new home.
