Find the right team to help you
The right team of real estate agents is a great resource for finding potential buyers, pricing your property competitively, knowing the trends of the local market, or even securing you an off-market deal. They’re also well connected and will have resources for all parts of the selling process, from staging tips to photographers to repairmen.
Focus on curb appeal
Another way to amp up the curb appeal of Denver luxury real estate is to tidy up the front entrance. Potential buyers will be walking through the front door, so it’s important the area is looking clean and fresh. If there are steps up to the front door, make sure they’re repaired and washed. Polish the door’s hinges and knob, as well as the door itself, and wipe away any dust or cobwebs. To finish the look, replace your old doormat with a new one or hang a wreath to create an inviting atmosphere.
Clean and declutter your home
You should also declutter your home, as clutter makes the inside of a house appear smaller than it actually is. Declutter by donating items like books, clothing, toys, or unused appliances. Also throw away old papers and magazines, or items you can’t donate. To avoid filling up storage spaces like closets and cabinets, or if you need to store larger items like furniture, invest in a storage unit. Not only will this keep your house looking clean, but everything will already be packed for a move into your new home.
Stage certain areas
The rooms to stage in your home are the kitchen, the master bedroom and bath, and the living room. Make sure kitchen countertops are clean and uncluttered, that the living room isn’t over or under furnished and that its natural pathways are clear, and that the master bedroom and bath look inviting and comfortable. If your home has a tricky room, consider staging that as well. Showing how areas like an odd side room can be utilized will help buyers view it as a perk of the house.
Inspect your home for needed repairs
Some maintenance to keep up to date with are cleaning the roof and gutters, touching up on paint, fixing dripping faucets, and repairing decks and railings. A home inspection can reveal larger and more costly problems that can dissuade buyers, such as roofing problems, electrical problems, structural and foundational problems, and safety and fire hazards.
Know your target buyer and advertise
More than 90% of buyers begin searching for a new home online, so having good quality, professional photography is integral to effective marketing. Make sure the photos are engaging and interest the buyer, while still providing a realistic view of the house’s structure and layout. Even before curb appeal, online photos are a buyer’s first impression of the home, and can heavily impact your success.
