How to Get Every Dollar You Deserve
When Selling Your Home


By Noel Peebles

The easy answer to maximizing your return from your home sale is to sell your own home. Cutting the agent out of the equation can save you thousands of dollars in real estate commission. This is particularly true when you are able to sell your home for a good price.

The ability to reap additional profits on the sale of your home can be accomplished easily enough if you make the right improvements. The following are a few tips from my real estate book "Home Selling Secrets".

Real estate book - Tip 1.

To get the best price; start by giving your prospective buyer an enhanced feelings about your home. Feelings of more open space, more light, more rooms, more closet space, greater privacy, warmth and security. These are all things that can trigger an better emotional response in a potential buyer. Best of all, these improvements won't necessarily cost you a fortune.

An example could be something as small as removing some mould on a shower curtain. Cleaning or replacing the offending curtain could remove any doubts about dampness in the home. A crack in a wall can be easily be repaired with a little plaster and touch up paint. This type of low cost repair can immediately eliminate, what could become an unstated concern that your home is poorly maintained.

It is important to remove any potential anxiety if the potential buyer is to feel an overall desire for your home.

Real estate book - Tip 2. Mirrors Give The Feeling Of More Space

Mirrors can provide a greater sense of space and elegance when properly positioned. Be careful not to overdo it, but when placed properly throughout your home, each area will seem larger to the potential home buyer. Either hang mirrors on picture hooks or buy some of those self adhesive mirror squares. Putting mirrors on a closet door in the master bedroom can be an attractive touch.

Adding More Closet Space

Everyone seems to have too many clothes! So, for potential buyers there never seems to be enough closet space. One solution is to buy some of those low cost closet organizers. They can make all the difference and give the impression of extra space.

Another idea is to make a "fake closet" that looks as though it is a part of the room. Simply hang a rod for the clothes across one corner of a bedroom. Then make a simple screen to cover the corner. The screen needn't be expensive to make and could match the material of the bedspread or drapes.

Real estate book - Tip 4.

Rejuvinate Those Tired Old Floors Unsightly floors can be another buyer turnoff. Regardless of whether you have wooden or tiled floors, do whatever you can to make them shine again. Rent a floor sander or waxing machine and rejuvenate those tired old floors. If you have carpeted floors you should have them cleaned. Either hire a professional carpet cleaning company or a carpet cleaning machine and do it yourself. You'll be surprised at how much dirt comes out of the average carpet.

The other option is to purchase new tiles, carpets or floor coverings. This might sound expensive, but new flooring can add thousands of dollars to the value of a home. A cheaper option is to buy some scatter rugs and place them strategically around the house.

Real estate book - Tip 5.

Make a Bare Wall Beautiful Again

Nothing turns off a potential buyer quicker than dull, dingy, disgusting looking walls. Yet, surprisingly, walls are sometimes the easiest part of a room to improve.

One idea is to cover large wooden frames with designer fabric and hang them like photos or pictures.

Wallpapering can also be an inexpensive, quick and easy improvement to a wall. A fresh coat of paint, or the right wallpaper, can bring any room back to life. The main thing is to be careful with your color schemes. Remember, you’re trying to make the house more appealing to potential buyers.

Plants And Flowers Add Life

Adding indoor plants and flowers to the house is easy, relatively inexpensive and can add atmosphere and feeling to a home. Best of all you can take them with you when you move. Attractive ceramic pots can also add a designer flair.

Real estate book - Tip 7.

Store and Hire

Most of us accumulate clutter over the years. Sometimes, when selling a house, it pays to have a good cleanout before showing potential buyers through. Also, some furniture may be dated or worn. Placing furniture and "clutter" in storage is an option worth considering. The decor can then be spruced up by hiring suitable, well presented, furniture for the open house days.

Real estate book - Tip 8.

Sparkling, Clean Bathrooms A Must

First impressions do count! Bathrooms need to be cleaned as if you could eat off any surface. They must be spotless! Clean baths, showers, toilets and sinks. Replace the shower curtain if it has mould on it. Look for water stains or rust in basins or around the fixtures. Check that the chalking around the shower, tub and sink is in immaculate condition. If not – replace it!

Real estate book - Tip 9.

Adding a Room Without Calling in the Contractor

Depending on the layout and style of your house, you could consider installing simple room dividers. Some homes suit an open plan look whilst other benefit from a "separate room" feel. Dividers can give a buyer the feeling there are more actual rooms in your house. A buyer walking through your home, will often subconsciously count the rooms and get a "feel" for the house.

Real estate book - Tip 10.

The Smells You Don't Smell

Every home has a certain smell to it... it is just that we get used to the smells and don't notice them. But, visitors will notice! Some realtor tricks for open houses include: baking some bread or cinnamon rolls, brewing some coffee, cleaning the microwave and refrigerator with vanilla essence, placing fresh flowers or perfume devices throughout the home ...the list goes on.
