Central Indiana – Take the Curtains Off Your Windows!

NoCurtainsBlog-ImageDimly lit rooms are big turnoffs. It is remarkable what a little light can do to a room. Buyers want their future house to be open, airy, and inviting so open up the space by adding natural light. That is just one possible reason your house in Central Indiana isn’t selling. Here are a few other top reasons homes don’t sell:

  • Clutter – Buyers get very distracted by clutter, and therefore they can’t focus on the house. Highlight the great features of your home by removing as much stuff from countertops, closets, basements, etc. as possible.
  • Personal Photos – Remove your life from the space and allow the buyer to imagine their life moving in. Eliminate anything that appears unusual to the rest of the general population.
  • Outdated – The biggest sellers are kitchens and bathrooms. You don’t have to get crazy with granite counters or hardwood floors. Instead, paint or refinish cabinets, replace a vanity with a pedestal sink, or get a couple new stainless steel appliances. These small investments instantly double the appeal of a room.
  • Deferred Maintenance – Today’s buyers are busy and properties that are in need of TLC are at a disadvantage since  families would prefer to spend their weekend relaxing rather than fixing stuff.
  • Bad Curb Appeal – Landscaping and exterior is the first thing buyers see when they pull up to your house….make it attractive so they immediately feel good about the house and go in excited.
  • Ineffective Marketing – Stage your house by Kokomo Home Stager, Jill Aaron, before you list it so that you have attractive photos in the MLS that stand out. Today, all buyers search the Internet and check out photos of homes before they even call their agent. Give yourself a marketable advantage by staging your home.
