With a competitive hosing market there are more Portland Oregon House Hunters out there than ever before.
Although you may be facing competition from your neighbor down the street, who is selling their home, you can make your home more appealing to buyers by doing the following.
1 – Use the Right Scents in Your Home
Instead of using overpowering air fresheners or scents consider using a light scent air freshener in your bathrooms, closets, laundry area and other rooms of your home which might get a little “smelly”.
Besides using air fresheners you can consider baking cookies or bread in your oven before home buyers arrive since the smell of something baking in the oven is inviting and a powerful way to help a home buyer envision themselves living in your home.
2 – Leave the Lights On In your Portland Oregon Home
There’s no denying that we’ve had some great weather recently which would make you think it’s summer in Portland, instead of winter, but you should still consider leaving the lights on in your home during the day so that an agent can point out all of the great features your home offers, even on cloudy days.
3 – Stage Your Home to Sell
Last of all, don’t forget to take the important step of staging your home to sell.
Home staging is an important part of the process because, you can make your home more appealing by de-cluttering to create more space, and deep cleaning your home so it will be spotless and ready for buyers once they arrive.
