Step 4 – Clean And Organize
Selling a Floridian home can be very rewarding, but the stress and challenges you’ll face to get to that point can seem endless. Once you’ve decided to sell, cleaning and organizing the house can be pretty quick, but after a showing or open house, it goes back to being a mess. Having to clean up again and again for potential buyers can be a serious hassle, not to mention if the house needs repairs!
Selling a house as is can be nearly impossible, and buyers can be scared away by even the smallest of renovations that a house might need. BG Home Solutions has offered these tips and tricks to help struggling homeowners to improve how quickly they sell their homes that may be in need of some fixing up or updating.
Put The Word Out
It makes sense to be the one to advertise the house yourself. After all, who knows it better than you? You know that it’s a house that needs work, and you know exactly how to show the house in the most appealing way.
To advertise, you can send out emails to family, friends and work associates ask them to post it to their social media accounts to get the word out. If you don’t want to advertise and show the house yourself, it can be helpful to hire a professional to take pictures of your house, so that your house shows in its best light and you aren’t listing with blurry photos from an older camera or cell phone.
If you really don’t want to be bothered advertising and showing the property yourself, then finding a quick house buying service can be extremely useful in your situation.

Declutter The House
It can seem like your home looks quaint and lived in to you, but to realtors and potential buyers it can look cluttered. A good solution to this problem is to get a storage unit. Getting junk out of rooms can make a house seem bigger and more open, which is usually pretty appealing to potential buyers. It can also be good to move more personal items into the storage unit too, like family heirlooms or photos. Seeing a picture of a smiling family when entering a house is great, but it also helps to let the buyer envision their own family in the new environment with their memories on the walls.
Sell At The Peak Time Of Year
Believe it or not, there are actually better times of the year to sell a house. Spring and summer are much easier times to sell than winter or fall. Of course, sometimes it can’t be helped, and you have to move right away. If that ends up being the case, then regardless of the season, BG Home Solutions can help get you quick cash for your house.
Clean and Organize
Changing a few things about your house can take it far in the market. Although full-scale renovations maybe important to the buyer, they’re not necessary to sell your property quickly! One way to make the house more appealing is to do a bit of gardening or lawn sculpting. The outside of the house is the first thing a buyer sees, so improving the outside of the house even slightly can go a long way. After all, if a buyer doesn’t like the outside of the house, there’s no way they’re going to buy. It’s all about establishing curb appeal.
Once you get the potential buyer through the front door you want to make sure the house is clean and orderly. Put yourself in the potential buyers eyes, they want to be able to see themselves being able to live in the property. Yes it may need some repairs and updates but if it is clean and everything is functional they can envision themselves living in it while fixing it up at the same time.
There are many first time home buyers that would love to get a property at a discount and do the upgrades and repairs themselves. This allows them to get into a neighborhood or school district that maybe they could not afford if the property was in HGTV condition.
