Are Buyers Reluctant to View Your House?

by Lili Patch 12/11/2019

If you list your home and fail to stir up interest in it, there is no reason to panic. In fact, there are many quick, easy ways to ensure your house consistently garners homebuyers' attention.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you showcase your home to dozens of prospective buyers.

1. Bolster Your House's Curb Appeal

How your home looks to potential buyers can have a significant impact on the house selling journey. If your residence appears drab and cluttered, buyers may be reluctant to set up a home showing. However, if you enhance your residence's curb appeal, you could make your home an attractive choice to buyers.

To upgrade your house's curb appeal, it is essential to mow the lawn, trim the hedges and perform other lawn care tasks. Don't forget to repair or replace any damaged home siding too. Because if you make your home's exterior appealing to buyers, you may find that many buyers want to check out your house as soon as possible.

2. Eliminate Clutter

Clutter is a problem that home sellers must eliminate. Otherwise, excess items scattered throughout a home may make a residence appear small.

For those who want to cut down on clutter, it may be beneficial to rent a storage unit. You can rent a storage unit close to home that enables you to keep various belongings safe until your residence sells.

If you are ready to get rid of assorted items, you can host a yard sale or list these items online. You also may want to donate unwanted items to a local charity or give them to family members or friends.

3. Employ a Real Estate Agent

When it comes to generating interest in a home, it often helps to hire a real estate agent. This housing market professional knows how to promote a residence to buyers, and ultimately, ensure a seller can reap the benefits of a quick, profitable property selling experience.

Initially, a real estate agent will walk through your home and perform an in-depth analysis. He or she next will work with you to craft a house selling strategy and showcase your residence to buyers. Finally, if you receive an offer to purchase your home, a real estate agent will help you assess this proposal and determine how to proceed.

Let's not forget about the assistance a real estate agent provides after you accept an offer to purchase, either. At this point, a real estate agent will guide you through the closing stages of the home selling journey. And if you have any concerns or questions along the way, a real estate agent is happy to address them.

If you find that buyers are hesitant to view your house, you may want to revamp your property selling strategy. Thanks to the aforementioned tips, you can revise your house selling plan and take the necessary steps to get buyers interested in your residence.

Radio Personality turned Realtor; I welcome the opportunity to turn house selling and house hunting into a fun and educated experience. House buying should feel like you're shopping with a friend, and I will keep you in the loop the entire time so you will not be wondering what you just signed or what happens next. It's that seamless, and we may even have lunch or dinner. I do this because when I started my real estate journey on the east coast, buying my first condo at the age of 18, I was clueless. I wished I had someone who had made that a stress free transaction- but it wasn't, and thats how I got the Real Estate bug. Let's take a step back first though to my first "job", I studied communications and entered the broadcasting industry. Through the years I purchased some more properties, and felt there was a gap that needed to be filled in the Real Estate profession. I set the bar very high on skill set & customer service. I have Real Estate Licenses in 4 states, which means I have more education, and training than most agents. My level of knowledge, strategy and experience is what sets me apart. I know how important being an astute negotiator is, being relentless, and answering the phone when it rings. I have earned certifications as a Seller Representative Specialist (SRS), a Certified Home Marketing specialist (CHMS), and a Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA).

Meeting with people and traveling both east coast and west coast has given me a broad appreciation of the different laws, protections, and scenario's you encounter in real estate. Having the benefit of my communication background coupled with the vast knowledge of multi-state experience has been the backbone of my success.
