There are a few reasons why a Brampton home won't sell as fast as anticipated, and if you know about them before putting your house up for sale, you'll be much better off. You'll be able to put things in place properly to get a faster sale by avoiding the following.
1. House is dirty or cluttered
You may have a very hectic lifestyle and may not be able to keep up with the housework as much as you'd like. It is critical to have your house spic and span as well as tidy when it is being sold. If you are planning on putting your house up on the Brampton market in the near future, you should hire a housecleaning service and a company that can help you organize your clutter. This is a small price to pay to make your house better prepared for a sale.
While you may be thinking that buyers should be able to see through the clutter and dirt and view the house on its own merits, it really doesn't work that way. First impressions are lasting and even if they love your Brampton home, they may withdraw simply because of the home's messy appearance.
2. Maintenance not kept up
There are little things that will get the attention of buyers when they are walking through your home that will irritate them enough to back off from putting in an offer. Simple things like a crack in the wall, broken flooring, doors that open properly and cupboards that are hard to maneuver should be fixed before any viewings. There are handymen in Brampton that are available to help you with these little things at very affordable prices. You can find their names in classified ads in your local newspaper or on the Internet. If you have a list of things that need to get done and hire a handyman for a full day, it really won't cost much at all.
3. Bad atmosphere
Every Brampton home emits its own atmosphere and there can either be a positive or negative flow in the house. Things that will contribute to negativity include bad odors, an empty appearance with little furniture and nothing on the walls, low lighting and curtains drawn, loud pounding music etc. Anything you can do to make your home appear happy and peaceful instead of drawn and droopy will help sell your home in the fastest way possible.
If you have received a call from your agent and need to get ready for a viewing, do a quick tidy up and make the home as positive as you can by setting the mood yourself. If you have had a bad day at the office, set it aside and have a positive approach when the doorbell rings. The better the mood in your Brampton home, the more likely the house will sell fast.
