So if you've ever taken your clothes to a consignment store to try to sell them back so someone else can buy them, and you've gone in, and they hand select which items they're willing to take back. That's because they know that their buyers are not going to want all of your clothes. And they're certainly not gonna want the ones that don't resell well.
Well, it works the same exact way with real estate. Yes, it is your home. We know it's a special place for you, but buyers are not looking for your home. They're looking for a home for themselves that's going to be a special place for them. And when you, as a seller, don't make your home look brand new, then it's not going to sell for as much money as if you did make it look brand new. Buyers want to walk in, and feel like it's their home, like it's a new home that they're buying.
I see this all the time with sellers. They ignore little details because they think that it's something that other buyers will want, because it's something that they wanted in their home. That's not the way it works. Buyers want something brand new. They want something for themselves. And not every home we sell is new, obviously. We are reselling a lot of homes, but you need to strive to make it look as new as possible by not ignoring the details. You need to fix the carpet. You need to paint it again, because you've already lived in it with that paint. And it's highly likely that the paint has chipped, or it's faded, or it's not as good as it was when you first moved in. You have to think back, as a seller, you have to think back to when you first bought it, and remember walking in, and how great it felt because it was this new home, and you could envision yourself there.
That's the same exact thing we want to do for other buyers who are walking into your home. So don't forget, you have to make your home brand new. You have to make your home like that clothing item that's going to resell at the consignment store, and therefore you get more money for it from the consignment store when they buy it back from you. You have to make sure that you don't ignore those little details. Make your home look as new as possible. And that is how you're going to net the most money on your home sale.
