3R’s of Home-Selling Tips


This may be common knowledge for those dealing with the real estate sector. However, it is good for any home owner to have home-selling tips. You know, for that time you will wish to put your home up for sale.


Fix things like leaky faucets and sticky cabinets, and replace old screens. Furthermore, repairs which otherwise seem unimportant make an impact on the buyers. This is because buyers tend to overestimate how much repairs cost.

The repairs, on their own, thus act as a push. It is also important to make your house standard. A fresh coat of neutral paint will make your home appear larger, brighter and more appealing to potential buyers.

Furniture placement should allow for easy traffic flow. It should have a functionality purpose for the different rooms. H, one should avoid having either too much or too little furniture. In the case of the former, rent a storage for the meantime. There are also options for borrowing or renting furniture of the latter.

Pack up personal photos and portraits. Less is always more. No one is coming to your house to see the family tree or share memory. Besides, a plus in packing early helps relieve the stress of doing it later.


Clean every inch of your house, and don’t forget to make your windows and floors sparkle. Any item appearing worn or stained should be replaced.  It goes without saying that clean homes sell!

You will also have to endure the inconvenience. Still following the mantra less is more, make sure that the rooms are clear. This will help the buyers picture themselves in the different rooms. If a certain chair placed at the window is keeping them from picturing a window seat with throw pillows they will not buy.
