Aside from repainting the wall, fixing and updating the cabinets and closets and doing some minor repairs, there are other factors which you need to mull over when staging your home for sale for potential buyers. One imperative thing to consider is your pet, as they sometimes leave illustrious markings and odours which can potentially snag the sale.
It is true that almost every person loves pets, well not including maybe for the home buyer who is buying your house. Don't ask me why, but that's often how it works out. Home sellers who adore their pets - and I count myself as a huge pet lover - have a hard time imagining the off-putting attitudes others harbour against pets. So, while this might be a vinegary pill to gulp down, if you want to get top dollar for your house, pay attention to how much you might lose with a dog or cat in your dwelling.
Home buyers often look for houses that are not only serene but free of furs or pet puss. Some people find it hard to bracket together with animal so they prefer houses that were not inhabited by animals. They have altered reasons for doing so. On the other hand, you still have options. You can earn loads and loads of money even if you have a dog named Spartacus or a Cat named Crookshanks. Here's how.
First, never divulge to your client that your house for sale was once a locale of an animal. It will drive them crazy as usual. While there are some people who just obviously don't have a thing for domesticated animals, you might lose these clienteles if you do.
Second, this may be hard to do but, displace your pets while your home is on the market. When your client visits the property and his/her toes are licked and her garb is bitten, it leaves a very appalling impression. Ninety-five percent of the clients will without delay reject your property. You don't want that to happen, do you?
Next, keep all their stuff away. I mean things that will make your secret pretty much palpable. For example, cat litter boxes & dog potty pads. Also, hire professionals to get rid of the stains. Buyers will spot them and form hostile opinions about the rest of the house. If the stains can't be removed, then remove the floor jacket and replace it.
You may be required by state law to disclose that pets have lived in your home, but you don't need to publicize that pets live at your house. Removing signs that you have a pet is merely smart practice. Why turn off a buyer at the get-go? It's those first impressions that are so all-fired important.
These simple reminders result to very big amounts. As much as we don't want to lose every possible buyers who comes in our homes because they don't have the same stance towards those fur friends like we do, it is better to try these instructions so that our houses be sold in no time.
