Selling your Keller home? 3 quick tips for a succesful sale.

No wonder you're thinking of selling your Keller home - it's a seller's market right now. The housing supply has dwindled, creating more demand for fewer homes.

Here are three  tips to set your home apart from other sellers.

1. Dirt's a deal-breaker: Make a clean sweep 

Most buyers prefer to see a clean home and the first thing to deal with is stained carpets and ceilings.
Stained carpets should be cleaned or replaced. Stained ceilings deserve your attention, too. They can scare off prospective buyers who fear that ceiling imperfections might be a sign of bigger problems. Even professionals find it difficult to match the original finish and color.

In addition, flocked or heavily textured ceilings are best replaced because they look so outdated. Instead, consider installing ceiling tiles or panels directly over the offending ceiling, using a simple DIY track-and-clip system.

2. Declutter the house

Buyers can't picture themselves in your home if they can't see past your piles of stuff. Pull together different items - like pottery or framed photography - using a common design element like color, similar patterns, texture or materials. Ideally, you will have your home professionally staged to create an exemplary presentation of your home.

It's OK to keep some areas empty, and to create a display of personal items in an attractive, organized manner in other areas. Consult with your real estate agent for the best combination.

3. Spark design interest  

So you've cleaned and decluttered, but now what? Nothing enlivens a space like a splash of color. Toss some bright new pillows on the sofa or add tasteful artwork or accessories to complement your color scheme. Paint adds personality, too, but choose your colors carefully so your wall palette flows naturally from room to room. Don't forget to add texture, whether with a woven area rug or sculptural wire baskets.

With a bit of primping, your Keller home can win the ultimate beauty contest and attract a buyer who's willing to meet your price, or even pay a premium to call it their own.
