How to Improve Your Sale Price Through Home ShowingsThere's a reason for all home sellers to go the extra mile for their home showing. This doesn't necessarily mean renting out expensive furniture or installing several water fountains, however. The following information provides three ways to scale a showing for any property.

Start with Cosmetics

Cosmetic touches can go a long way. Sellers can:

Try Mini Updates

After the most obvious things have been fixed, homeowners can move on to completing small DIY projects to all the major corners of the home. This could mean repairing a few tiles, replacing outdated bathroom fixtures, or giving the walls a fresh coat of paint.

Adding a cashmere throw to a sofa or a fancy candle to the bathroom can also work wonders. These small touches instantly breathe new life into each room and help potential buyers remember it long after they head back to their own homes.

Ask the Agent

In some cities and towns, a fireplace is a deal-breaker for buyers. In others, it's energy-efficient appliances that make or break the sale. Talking to an agent can help sellers understand buyer priorities, so they can play up certain features and bring them into focus.

No matter where a person is selling, the standard advice is always to keep the decor as neutral and clean as possible. Sellers should be helping buyers imagine their own things in the home, not overwhelming them with loud colors or crowded areas.

There are so many reasons to show a home off, not least of which to improve the resale value of the home. Putting care and attention into the home can inspire others to take an interest.
