Selling Your First San Diego Home

In a previous article I spoke about the concerns regarding purchasing your first home. Well, now it is time to speak about selling that first home. Most people will have mixed feelings about selling the first home they ever bought. Typically there is a lot of emotion that is tied into your first home. There are a lot of memories, many good times, many firsts and the process of selling such a home can be emotionally trying and quite exhausting. But, as a family grows there is a need to upsize or maybe you can now afford a better more appropriate home. no matter the reason, here are some tips and hints about dealing with the sale of the first home you ever purchased.

As you have lived in the home for a number of years, (likely) you have probably customized it to your liking. This refers to colors, decorations, fixtures and the like. The question is, will your customizations be appealing to a wide group of buyers? Try to look at your home as if you are seeing it for the first time. This may be hard but it is a necessary thing. Buyers will not see the same value in a home as the owner, typically they will be looking for things that they can use to negotiate the price down. This is not out of a dislike for anything in specific, simply that they are looking for the best value for their dollar. Your job, is to ensure that there are as few negotiating points as possible. So tone down the decor of the home if needed and make sure that it is appealing on many levels to as many people as possible. A good way to do this is to repaint the interior in neutral colors that have a rich warm tone to them. This makes the home feel more inviting and will help to liven up the rooms without being overt. Cleanliness is also very important. Nobody likes to look at a dirty home and clutter and junk is the enemy of a good showing. Think about it like this: when your realtor takes pictures of your home for the listing, people will expect to show up to see the home as it is in the pictures. Nothing bodes worse for a sale than buyers who are disappointed with their first impression.

Over the years your home has likely been very good to you. It has been your haven and refuge from the outside world. Do your home a favor when selling it: give it the attention it deserves to sell quickly and for the right amount.
