BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Every homeowner wants to sell their home for the most money and in the shortest time possible.
Mary Stackhouse takes a look at the deal-makers — and deal-breakers — when it comes to selling your home.
Katherine Smith from RealtySouth says that when you’re selling your home, it needs to appeal to the most potential buyers.
Smith says, “You’re selling a product, so you really want people to be able to see the house.”
That means keeping your space clean — including closets and storage areas. Also, try to keep your walls neutral-colored and your decor minimal.
Smith says, “People are not likely to buy something if they don’t remember key features of the house.”
When trying to sell your home, you should also pay attention to smells.
Smith says, “If you do cook something strong the night before, make sure to take out the trash, maybe light a candle.”
