7 Places People Neglect When Selling Their Athens Home

Real estate wisdom holds that the best way to sell a house is to sell it fast. But when your Athens home isn’t in the best condition possible, it may sit on the market unsold for a long time. We all know this. It’s just that in attending to the larger issues we sometimes neglect other matters. So let’s take a look at these 7 places people neglect when selling their Athens home.

1. Small Things Inside

Sellers repair the roof and upgrade appliances and pay for professional staging, but often neglect the small issues inside because they are used to them. But you can bet buyers will notice these things. So don’t neglect to fix the dripping kitchen faucet, the broken tiles in the bathroom, and the sticking bedroom door.

2. Walls Behind Furniture

Even if you’re still living in the home, you’ll probably move some of the larger and least-necessary items of furniture to storage. And when you do, you often find that the walls behind these items are gouged or dirty or lighter than the rest of the room. Don’t let these be places you neglect when selling your Athens home.

3.Where De-cluttered Clutter is Stored

Most sellers do at least some de-cluttering, but the areas where they store that clutter – temporarily and to be dealt with later – often become places people neglect when selling their Athens home. Get the de-cluttered clutter out of the hall closet and out of the garage. Buyers will poke into every nook and cranny, and you don’t want them piled high with junk you forgot to move to storage.

4. The Exterior

Sellers also get so caught up in making the exterior look good that they neglect to spruce up the exterior of their Athens home. Check siding and trim for damage and replace where necessary,  touch up faded or chipped paint, clean out gutters, and perform yard maintenance and minor landscaping. All these things add to that critical curb appeal, which sellers absolutely can’t neglect when selling their Athenshome.

5. The Driveway

The driveway just may be the number-one place that gets neglected. But the fact is buyers may see the driveway before they see anything else. Wash off the oil stains and fill cracks. And be sure to put away the toys and bicycles that usually litter driveways.

6. Where Your Personality Fingerprints Show

A very important one of the 7 places people neglect when selling their Athens home can be most of your home. It is the place or places where your personality fingerprints show – that is, all those things that stamp the house as your family’s home. And it includes everything that prevents potential buyers from envisioning your house as their new home. You will need, then, to remove all family portraits, decorations, and whatever else doesn’t promote a blank-canvas effect.

7. The Buyer’s Mind

The final place sellers shouldn’t neglect when selling their Athens home is the buyers’ mind. What we mean is that you should try to put yourself in the buyer’s shoes and try to see your house from her point of view. If you were looking for a new home to live in and raise a family in for many years to come, what would you want to see or not see?

You absolutely don’t want your house to sit on the market for so long that it becomes “stale.” So don’t neglect these 7 places people neglect when selling their Athens city home.
