Attract the Millennials.
Millennials are now making up a large percentage of the buying population. So, rather than ignore the new generation start highlighting the things and updates in your home that would attract the millennial buyer. Does your home have new technology, energy-efficient appliances, or eco-friendly features? All of these things are updates that Millennial buyers are looking for. Also, working with your agent to use online resources such as social media is a great way to get this generation’s attention.
Finish those last few updates.
Most people love a move-in ready home. A home they can just move their belongings in to and just relax. If you have last minute projects to finish up before listing, don’t be afraid to get those done. Millennials among other generations of buyers love going into a home for the first time knowing they can just move in without all the extra work. Your home won’t sit for long if it’s already ready for the new owner’s housewarming party.
Make sure you are ready for your first open house.
Once you list your home, it’s important that you are prepared for your first open house and any appointment with a potential buyer that could happen with your real estate agent. Always make sure that your trash is taken out to avoid any unpleasant smells in your home, all medications need to be put away to prevent theft, hide personal family items, and leave refreshments or warm cookies in the kitchen. Remember, first impressions are everything even in real estate.
