Six Tips On Selling A Home That Has Already Been Emptied Out

It's not uncommon for homeowners who are in the process of selling their home to need to find a buyer after their home has already been emptied out. While selling an empty home can pose some challenges, it also offers a few advantages as well. 

You can use the following six tips to find a buyer for your emptied out property as quickly as possible:

Clean carefully after you've removed everything

One advantage of having a home emptied out is that it's more easy to clean the interiors. Make sure that you take advantage of this and give your home a thorough cleaning before you start showing it. 

Have a coat of paint or new flooring put down to remove blemishes

Remember that blemishes in your walls and flooring are going to be more apparent once you've emptied everything out of your rooms. It therefore may be a good idea to have some paint or new flooring put down to perfect the appearance of your interiors after they've been emptied out. 

Have pictures available of what the interiors looked like when furnished

It can be helpful to take some pictures of what your interiors looked like when they were still furnished. This gives prospective buyers an appreciation of how homey your property can look and feel when it is lived in. Try to photograph every room before your home is completely emptied out if possible. 

Place a few minor furnishings around to fill the space in a bit

It's best not to completely empty out your home. Try to leave at least a few minor furnishings in each room just to fill things in a little bit. Place at least two or three decor accessories in each room if possible. 

Make sure prospective buyers know the home has been emptied out before the showing

The first impression of prospective buyers is important. If they were expecting a furnished home, it might be startling for them to arrive and see your home is empty. Make sure prospective buyers have been notified beforehand that your home has been emptied so that they know what to expect when they come to a showing. 

Mention to prospective buyers that move-in can be immediate

Try to showcase the advantages of the fact that your home has already been emptied out. Make sure you mention to those who come to your home for showings that they can move in immediately. This can make a property far more appealing to prospective buyers who are hoping to move as quickly as possible. Contact an agency, like C Edwards Real Estate , for more help.
