The Home Seller Hustle: Set Yourself Up For Success When Selling Your Ranch House

When you decide that it's time to sell your ranch house, you may not be exactly sure about what you should do. Taking an initial action can be the hardest part for many potential home sellers. The first step should be to call a real estate agent. A real estate agent can help guide you through the home-selling process from the initial decisions about placing your home for sale through the follow-up after you close your home. You can also take actions to help set yourself up for success.

Try This! Fix All the Major Flaws in Your Home

Before actually putting your home on the market, you may want to take the time to invest in improving your home. If you have any major flaws in your home, they can not only bring down the value of your ranch house, but they may also scare off potential home buyers. Invest in fixing anything that could cause a major issue.

Damaged roofs, faulty plumbing, and broken windows are just some of the things that would need to be fixed. Also, keep in mind that anything that poses a potential safety risk should be fixed before you put the home for sale or show it to potential home buyers.

Try This! Think Like a Home Buyer When Evaluating Your House

When you are preparing your ranch home, imagine what future home buyers will think of it. What would your target home buyer want in a house? Ask yourself these questions when considering the home buyer:

  • Which features of your ranch home are worth accentuating for what they offer home buyers?
  • What are the ways you can actively help home buyers imagine themselves living in your house?
  • Can you inexpensively add to your home in a significant way that will appeal to buyers?
  • What parts of your home do you want to place less of an emphasis on during showings?
  • Do you feel proud of your home and are sure you'll be confident to show it to buyers?

Finally, keep in mind that your real estate agent takes care of a lot of the parts of selling your ranch home that you may not want to do. You don't have to be on top of all the details of selling the house yourself. However, it's helpful to be proactive and go the extra mile to connect with home buyers and get the word out about your home for sale. When you go above and beyond, you may find that the sale of your home goes better than you imagined.

About Me

A New Home by Christmas

When I was born, my parents lived in a tiny, brick home. The small house only had one bathroom. And the laundry room could be reached only by going outside and venturing to the side of the house. Thankfully, my family purchased a new home when I was in the seventh grade. The new place was approximately twice as large as the old home. We moved into this sprawling farmhouse a couple of days before Christmas. I will never forget how amazing the first few days of living in this new place felt. On this blog, I hope you will discover some tips to help you purchase your dream home by Christmas. Enjoy!
