If you’re looking for a successful home sale in Sioux Falls, it’s important to understand which factors can help increase a home’s value—and which can actually hurt the value. Before taking photos, listing your home, or starting to show your home, make sure your home is in tip-top shape to ensure that you make the most money on your home.
Learn just how you can work with the Fisher Sisters to increase your home value and sell for a greater profit.
1. Work the Curb Appeal
The outside of your home is the first thing buyers see—and they might choose not to see any more if they don’t like what they see! Make sure your home shines, inside AND out. We will show you how you can optimize your curb appeal with tips and pointers specific to your house, yard, and accessories.
Your family photos, keepsakes, and personal decor might give your home a unique charm, but they can actually be a turnoff to a potential buyer. The goal is to enable your buyer to visualize their belongings in your home, not to make them feel like a guest. We will help you depersonalize your home to set the stage for buyers’ imaginations to soar.
3. Make All Repairs
If something is broken, fix it now. Don’t wait for a potential buyer to discover it, and don’t leave major repairs for after the home inspection. If you need recommendations for repairmen or private contractors, we can point you in the right direction of top local services.
4. Check Your Color Scheme
Whether you have too much color or not enough, your color scheme just might not be working with your lighting, furniture, or decor. We’ll let you know what works—and what might need to be changed.
5. Clean & Declutter
Whether you need tips or a cleaning service, we can point you in the right direction to ensure that your home shines when it comes time to sell. We will do a room-by-room walkthrough to create a plan for cleaning, removing clutter, and strategically placing your furniture.
6. Scents & A Human Touch
We have lots of recommendations for making sure your home smells clean, fresh, and welcoming, and we can help you add personal touches, such as plants, fresh fruit, or flowers.
