Getting Inside the Head of the Buyer

If you’re trying to sell your home fast, it helps to get into the head of your potential buyer. You can make meaningful improvements when you begin to see your home as they see it. With these tips, you’ll have your home looking very appealing to potential buyers who choose to take a look inside.

What Buyers Want to See

Typically, buyers like things to look move in ready. In order for you to get a serious offer, expect to repaint your home and make some small improvements to modernize the space. New fixtures, for instance, would require about a week of work and cost you less than redoing your entire kitchen. As your fixing your property, try to be aware of affordable improvements you can make that buyers might notice. Faucets and sinks are a big one, but a DIY backsplash is equally appealing if done in the right colors.

How to Show a Home

When it comes time to show the home, be sure that you’ve staged the space and made it look wide open. Buyers want to feel like they can store anything in the space, so your furniture may get rearranged while you show the home. Hire a cleaning service if you have to, in order to get rid of clutter and revitalize the space. Windows, mirrors and any other slick surfaces should be polished and shiny. Don’t forget to dust either.


Selling a home quickly is almost as important as getting the price you’re asking for. It costs you money and time to stay at the old property, and that’s one hurdle you don’t need when you’re ready to move on.
