There’s no doubt that it can be stressful selling your Kelowna home. Whether it be because you have a special emotional attachment, you live out of the town your Kelowna home is listed in or you work out of your home. There are plenty of reasons why people get stressed! So we’re here to give you tips on how to eliminate stress during the selling process.
We believe the five easiest ways on how to eliminate stress during the selling process are,
Hire an Interior Designer to Stage your Kelowna Home
It has been proven in our real estate transactions that a home will sell faster if it is staged properly by an interior designer. If you have a visual buyer coming through your home and they see a properly staged home, they can imagine how they can fit their furniture in a home.
Establish ahead of a time who is responsible for the animals
You get a call from your Kelowna realtor and congratulations! You have a showing at 2PM today! Rather than scrambling to find someone to pet-sit at last minute, have a schedule ahead of time. Each member of the family knows they are on duty that day. You get a last-minute call now, you are prepared and the person on duty can come grab your animal.
Move out before you list
Now this may not be an option for everyone, but if it is an option for you then highly consider it. No more worrying about getting countless phone calls about showing requests, your Kelowna realtor now knows the home is vacant and can be shown anytime. This can in turn drive more potential buyers as they can go in anytime to view your home rather than being rejected a showing due to circumstances.
Keep your home clean
You are expecting me to keep my house clean constantly? I have children, pets and a husband! We get it, and that is why we strongly believe in having your home somewhat clean constantly. General rule, keep it around 15-30 minutes away from being spotless. You are at the grocery store and you get a call from your Kelowna realtor… You can run home, clean for 30 minutes and have it ready to go for your showing!
Plan to be gone on the first two weekends
The first two weeks of your home being on the market is the busiest. So, if you can, schedule activities for the first two weekends. Not only for showings but also for open houses. This is the busiest time for your home it is important to get as many people through the home in the first two weeks possible. The weather is finally starting to warm up, so it’s a great time to take your family on a nice hike, here’s a guide to the best hiking trails in Kelowna.
