Secrets to Selling Your Home in Northern Colorado


Secrets to Selling Your Home in Northern Colorado

You’ve probably already noticed, but in case you haven’t, housing marketingmis HOT right now. In fact, new home sales hit their highest level since April 2008. Home prices also hit a record high, which if you live in Northern Colorado, you’re definitely aware of. With the housing market doing so well, more first-time home buyers are entering the market making it easier for people to sell. If you’re one of those people looking to sell, Colorado Blinds and Designs has a few tips to help you sell even faster!

Lighten Up

After location, buyers say “good light” is something they want in a home. Maximize the light in your house by replacing bulky, out-dated drapery, change the lamp shades, and increase the wattage of your bulbs. Do whatever you need to do to make your space feel more open and cheery.
Half-Empty Closets

Buyers are always looking for storage! Consider taking half of your stuff out of your closets and neatly organize what’s left.
Hide The Pets
Although many people are self-described animal people, they don’t necessarily like the idea of them living in a house they may potentially purchase. Dog bowls, bedding, and kitty litter boxes give buyers the impression your house is not clean, so consider sending Fido to a friend’s house or a pet hotel for the day.

Don’t Over-Upgrade
Quick fixes before selling pay off, but huge make-overs aren’t necessary, especially in today’s market. Focus on the small improvements that will pay off and get you top dollar — fresh paint, new curtains, cabinet hardware, etc.

The more personal stuff you keep in your home, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves there. Before you show your house, store a third of your belongs, especially personal effects — family photos, collections, keepsakes, etc. You may also want to consider hiring one of our interior designers to help stage your home to maximize its full potential. A designer can see your home a new light and help you arrange your furniture and belongings to best showcase the floor plan and the use of space.
