There are plenty of tips and tricks out there for selling your home, but not many of them focus on what’s in the home—specifically, the items taking up the most space inside of it. What do you do about all your stuff while you try to sell your Irving home?
From using a storage container to store items while you showcase your home to hiring an amazing home stager or realtor, here are some secrets to selling your home in Irving, Texas.
1. Hire a Home Stager
The impression your Irving home makes on visitors often translates directly to how much they’ll value it. Do you know the ideal color for your walls? What about the ideal environment for your home’s price range? A home stager knows both of these and can help you maximize your home’s presentation. They’ll also provide an objective view about items that may have sentimental value for you and replace them with something better for the staging.
2. Use a Portable Storage Container
What if you have too many items for a proper home staging? You can store them temporarily in a portable storage container. You can even keep it on site if you prefer, or at a secure storage facility. Decluttering a home has several advantages for staging, from letting more light in the space to creating a better flow from room to room.
3. Don’t Choose the Cheapest Realtor
Many Irving home sellers choose the first realtor they meet with, or a family member/friend. While these options may charge a lower commission, it doesn’t mean they’re the best option for you. Instead, choose a realtor who can help you get the most value out of your home and create the biggest realistic asking price. Good realtors often have connections to good home stagers and know other tricks for increasing your home’s presentation value.
4. Invest in High-Quality Video and Photography
Whether you choose a realtor or do it yourself, high-quality video and photography is a must. After all, “90% of home buyers searched online during their home buying process,” according to The Digital House Hunt: Consumer and Market Trends in Real Estate, a joint study from The National Association of Realtors® and Google. These videos and photos are important for any digital listings, as well as social media.
5. Talk to Several Experts
Whether it’s home stagers, realtors, videographers, photographers or real estate agents, make sure you talk to several experts in the industry. Advice is often free and these people have the experience you need to sell your home Irving easily. Most of the time, it will start with clearing out extra belongings and presenting the best-looking home possible.
