The “For Sale by Owner” way of selling is way more effective if you are on top of your game. There are certain key things that don’t cost much but will definitely help you sell your home and for more money.

Here are a few tips to help you sell your own home for more money and faster:

  • One of the cheapest things to do is to have a clean yard with the lawn mowed and give the prospective buyers a neat welcome. Blow away any leaves or other debris and keep the entrance nice and tidy.
  • Another very cost effective thing to do to a home to increase its perceived value is to paint the outside. As they say “a first impression lasts for ever.” Try keeping neutral colours for the inside of the house. Greys and browns are pretty good colours for the inside common areas.
  • Decluttering is a big thing. Let there be space to move about inside the house. Less is more.
  • Roll up the blinds and let the light come in. This always works well. People like to see how well lit the home is that they are buying.
