More than likely if you have your house on the market you have done your best to get it as clean as you possibly can.  What you may not know is that there are many other tips and tricks that go above and beyond cleaning your home to help you sell your home.  A few of those tips and tricks are listed below.

  • One of the main things you need to do if you want to sell your home is to leave when someone is taking a tour of your home.  This may sound like a no brainer but you would be surprised at the number of folks who try to stick around during a home tour.  The prospective owners want to see the house and envision themselves in it, this cannot happen if you are lurking in the background during the tour.
  • Another tip for selling your home is not to leave your pets behind during a home tour.  Although people love pets, they don’t really want to meet your pet in person while touring your house.  Be sure to clean up after them as well and not leave the pets belongings strewn throughout the house.
  • Be sure to move your car where the Realtor and the prospective buyer will have a place to park when touring your home. If you need to park all of your extra cars at a friend’s or neighbor’s house during the tour, do so.
  • Be careful not to leave your bills and other mail laying around on the kitchen countertops when you have someone coming to take a tour of your home. Not only is clutter a turn off to prospective buyers but it is also not a good idea to leave important documents lying around that can be seen by eyes that don’t need to see them.
  • Do not call your Realtor five minutes after the home tour has taken place. Be careful to give him or her time to do their job and get things in order before they come to you with feedback from the tour.

These tips for selling your home  are very helpful if you are sure to take them to heart.  Most importantly remember to do your part in the preparing for the sale of your home and always be willing to negotiate.
