Not only has the Stock Market been running on a hot streak this year, but look no further than your own neighborhood to see the real hot market is right under your feet.
Home values have been skyrocketing. In fact, according to Zillow Research, “The typical U.S. home value rose 1.2% in March from February, to $276,717, the largest monthly jump ever recorded in the Zillow Home Value Index.”
While inventory remains low and demand remains hot, it may mean you are ready to throw your home in the mix and put it up for sale.
If so, there are a few minor tweaks you can make to ensure your walls are ready when the buyers are. Here are 5 simple ways to make sure your walls are ready to get maximum asking price.
When it comes time for snapping those professional pictures, less is more. Remove any clutter from the walls and stick to neutral tones as much as possible. Your walls should entice the buyer to envision their decor, not yours.
As cute as it is to have your family posted everywhere, it can also detract from a buyer’s emotions. Remove any photos of your family or children, and replace the area with removable vinyl wall decals such as “Bless this home and all who enter it” which evokes a feeling of warmth instead.
While having too many photos or clutter on the walls can detract from a buyer’s interest, having bare walls can have a negative effect, too. Instead, consider having a simple wall decal such as this one, perfect for over the coach.
Take a quick glance around your walls. Are they dirty? Need a touch up or some fresh paint? Don’t assume that just because you don’t notice your dirty walls means your potential buyers won’t either. Grab that Magic Eraser and touch-up paint and do some sprucing up so buyers are drawn to the bones of your home — and not the fingerprints on the walls.
While not technically a wall, your door has endless possibilities when it comes to welcoming potential buyers into your home. Don’t forget to welcome potential buyers inside with a vinyl decal for doors that is sure to wow prospective buyers before they even set foot inside. Options like this one bring the warmth, so the buyers will hopefully bring their pocketbook.
No matter how you choose to ready your home to sell, making sure you spend time refreshing your walls and adding inexpensive — and removable — vinyl wall decals are a surefire way to get top-notch buyers’ attention while grabbing top-dollar offers in this white-hot housing market.
