5 Ways to Sell Your HOME Faster
Updated: Aug 6, 2019
Putting your home on SALE is an emotional and a daunting life decision, especially when you have to open your home for viewings. Remember, it's the small things that will make the difference to make your house into an ideal home.
However emotional the decision is, the ultimate goal of selling your HDB or Condo is to get the best value in minimum time. There are various ways that can help add value, but be prepared to spend a little more time and sweat to get it started! Here are a few suggestions to sell your home faster and increase the value of your home.
1. Declutter & Depersonalise
Get inspired by Marie Kondo's inspiring KonMari organising method to declutter your home. As a rule of thumb, remove a third of your stuff and put it in storage. Clean up your closets and neatly organise what's left in there.
Another critical thing to do is to de-personalise your home. The more personal stuff there is in your home, the less potential buyers can visualise themselves living there. Remove personal memorabilia, photographs, etc.
2. The Kitchen & Bathrooms always come first.
While selling your house, remember that kitchens and bathrooms are high-use, high-traffic rooms, so they generate a high level of interest. Quick simple tips are - no dishes in the sink, sparkling bathrooms, scrubbed, shiny surfaces & floors.
Depending upon your budget, upgrade or paint or get new cabinet hardware. Make sure no dust bunnies are lurking in the corners. It's a little troublesome, but it will get your house sold quickly.
3. Light up the House
Make your HDB/Condo look fresh. After location, good lighting is the one thing that every Singapore buyer mentions that they aspire in a home. Cleaning the windows, maximizing the light in your home, increase the wattage of your lights are some cost-effective, quick tricks.
If you have some budget then painting the walls in a neutral colour, buying light coloured curtains, changing lampshades, will go a long way to make your house bright and cheery – and more sell-able.
4. Consider Home Styling
As a Singaporean seller, think from a prospective buyer’s point of view, how you can make your home more visually appealing for them.
The key is to get your home staged by an expert to maximize the full potential of your home. Home styling is beneficial as it helps buyers mentally move in. More than 80 Percent of realtors said staged houses help buyers visualize them as Homes.
When our clients come to us for listing our professional team of Home Central evaluates the current condition and belongings in your house. After an assessment, we determine how much home staging is required. We may recommend renting or buying a few things or suggest some re-organisation in a whole new way.
For some units, we removed all belongings and presented the home to emphasise a property’s strengths and minimises its weak points. The aim is to maximise the value and sell your home at a higher price.
5. Use Creative ways of Marketing
To have a quick conversion, you need to reach out to a large number of buyers and find creative ways to reach them. Video tells the story of a home in a more lively manner. A captivating video not only immerses potential buyers into the experience of your home and the adjacent neighbourhood but also creates an emotional connection by showcasing what makes it unique.
