Palm Beach housing market is dynamic with property prices touching a sky. Inventory of homes is low and homes sell quickly as soon as they are listed on the market. However, if you are desirous of getting the desired asking price, you need to prepare it for showing. A property that is sparkling clean from inside and outside creates a good impression on the prospective buyer than one that has not been cleaned for showing.
Empty and clean house is loved by buyers
If you have not vacated the property and still living in it, it is important to have it super cleaned before an interested buyer comes over to see it. A sparkling clean home tells the buyer that you have taken good care of the property. A study done in this regard says that if you spend $300 to get your house cleaned professionally, you can get nearly $2000 extra from the buyer by adding this amount to your asking price. This means you should not consider this as an expense but rather as an investment on your home.
Your old furniture actually distracts the buyer
There is no need to hide the good features of your home behind old furniture that you have been using until now. It is a good idea to pack and send the clutter and furniture rarely used to another location to increase the chances of your house liked by the visitor. You may love your antiques and art pieces but your buyer may not have the same taste as you. You could be causing a distraction for the visitors through your furniture and art pieces.
As you have made up your mind to move, why delay packing your items, leaving it till the deal has been finalized? You are used to seeing what you keep inside your kitchen cabinets but you never know what kind of a response objects kept inside these cabinets may elicit from the visitor. It is better to remove the mismatched and differently colored plastic containers and utensils from your kitchen to not only prevent the visitor from seeing a mess but also to give him a chance to imagine how he will organize things in his kitchen.
You must wear the shoes of the buyer and take a look at your home to understand what should be done to make your house look clean and pretty. A clean house means not just clean floors and walls but also the upholstery, the furniture, and the windows and mirrors.
