Selling Tips - How to Show a Home in Utah

Tips to Showing Your Utah County Home

Open up in the Daytime
Let the sun shine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes so prospects can see how bright your Utah County home is. When you take the following steps, you’ll help Team Teasdale Realty sell your home faster, at the best possible price. Remember these selling tips when selling a home in Utah County.

The easiest and most reliable way to improve showing your home in Utah County is to enlist a Realtor that is trained in staging a home.  Our Associate Broker Dave Teasdale is a certified home staging specialist. Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights - both inside and outside - when showing your home in the evening. Lights add color and warmth, and make prospects feel welcome.

Make the Most of that First Impression
A well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and a clutter-free porch welcome prospects. So does a freshly painted – or at least freshly scrubbed – front door. If it’s autumn, rake the leaves. If it’s winter, shovel the walkways. The fewer obstacles between prospects and the true appeal of your home, the better. Make a good impression when showing your home in Utah County.

Invest a Few Hours for Future Dividends
Clean up the living room, the bathroom, the kitchen. If your woodwork is scuffed or the paint is fading, consider some minor redecoration. Fresh wallpaper adds charm and value to your property. If you’re worried about time, hire professional cleaners or painters to get your house ready. Remember, prospects would rather see how great your home really looks than hear how great it could look "with a little work." Painting is the cheapest way to make the biggest improvement.

Check Faucets and Bulbs
Dripping water rattles the nerves, discolors sinks, and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing. Burned out bulbs or faulty wiring leave prospects in the dark.

Don’t Shut Out a Sale
If cabinets or closet doors stick in your home, you can be sure they will also stick in a prospect’s mind. Don’t try to explain away sticky situations when you can easily plane them away. A little effort on your part can smooth the way toward a closing. Remember these selling tips when selling a home in Utah County.

Think Safety
Utah County homeowners learn to live with all kinds of self-set booby traps: roller skates on the stairs, slippery throw rugs, bikes in the driveway and low hanging overhead lights. Make your residence as non-perilous as possible for uninitiated buyers. Get rid of any hazards when showing your home in Utah County.

Make Room for Space
Remember, potential Utah County Buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space. Utah buyers are  looking for storage space, too. Make sure your attic and basement are clean and free of unnecessary items. Buyers in Utah like a nice food storage area. It comes with the demographics of Utah. Don't make much effort cleaning a food storage area. Buyer's don't expect this area of the home to be immaculate.

Consider Your Closets
The better organized a closet, the larger it appears. Now’s the time to box up those unwanted clothes and donate them to charity. Hey, DI is in Provo and they have a drive thru!

Make Your Bathroom Sparkle
Bathrooms sell homes, so let them shine. Check and repair damaged or unsightly caulking in the tubs and showers. For added allure, display your best towels, mats, and shower curtains. Remember these selling tips when selling a home in Utah County.

Create Dream Bedrooms
Wake up prospects to the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. For a spacious look, get rid of excess furniture. Colorful bedspreads and fresh curtains are a must.

Leave the Home When Showing
Potential Utah County buyers often feel like intruders when they enter a home filled with people. Rather than giving your house the attention it deserves, they're likely to hurry through. Leave the home if possible and let the Realtor sell it.

Watch Your Pets
Dogs and cats are great companions, but not when you're showing your home. Pets have a talent for getting underfoot. So do everybody a favor: Keep Kitty and Spot outside, or at least out of the way.

Think Volume
When it's time to show your home, it's time to turn off stereo or TV. A little quiet classical music in a room is okay but that's all. Remember these selling tips when selling a home in Utah County.

Be friendly, but don't try to force conversation. Prospects want to view your home with a minimum of distraction.

Keep a Low Profile
Nobody knows your home as well as you do. But Team Teasdale Realty knows buyers - what they need and what they want. Your Team Teasdale Realty Associate will have an easier time articulating the virtues of your home if you stay in the background.

Don't Turn Your Home into a Second-Hand Store
When showing your home in Utah County, don't distract them with offers to sell those furnishings you no longer need. You may lose the biggest sale of all. Remember these selling tips when selling a home in Utah County.

Defer to Experience
When prospects want to talk price, terms, or other real estate matters, let them speak to an expert - Paul Teasdale has sold 1,100+ homes in Utah County and he is a professional negotiator.
