There’s a lot of design trends that you’ll want to keep up with as a homeowner. What are people doing to their backyards to make them more beautiful? What types of countertops are buyers looking for these days? Some trends are beneficial. However, there’s a lot of trends that can be detrimental to your home. You want your home to be an expression of who you are, however, there are some trends that just aren’t attractive to buyers. 

Bright And Bold May Not Be Beautiful 

While that lime green room may look really attractive to you, it probably won’t look as good to anyone else. The best colors for paint inside of your home are the neutral colors. These include beiges, grays and soft whites. The most important thing is to keep your paint color consistent throughout your home. Not that you can’t change shades from room to room, but don’t make the paint change too drastic.  

No One Really Likes Shiny Things

As much as you may like shiny accessories throughout the home, it’s not going to be everyone’s thing. Although people will be decorating your home on their terms once they buy it, it’s important to note that busy isn’t always better. People need to be able to see past how you have set up your home to see the potential it holds for them.  

An Open Floor Plan That’s Too Open

You can take the idea of an open floor plan to an extreme. There are certain rooms in the home that just deserve privacy. The bathrooms and the bedrooms need walls surrounding them to give people the space and quiet that they need. If there’s no good way for you to fix this issue, you may want to find some room screens before your open house in order to keep buyers interested.  

Converted Rooms Squash Vision

If you have a third bedroom that you have converted into a home gym, that’s great for you. It may be hard for other people visiting the home to realize what the room could be used for. You may not have to move everything before an open house, but try to keep the room open for possibility.     

Carpeting Kills Buyer’s Dreams

There’s not many more terrifying things to buyers than walking into a home and seeing wall-to-wall carpeting. Their minds race, thinking of the possibilities of how to get beloved hardwood floors into the picture. If there’s floor under your carpet and you know you're going to sell soon, you’d be wise to tear up the carpet and polish up those floors. It will attract more buyers and sell faster because people will know they have that much less work to do once they move in. 

The Takeaway

 The important point here is that when you’re getting ready to show your home, you’ll want to take your personality out of the picture. Buyers need to have space to get the vision to see how they can make your former home their own. Reversing a few of the personal upgrades that you have made to your home can help you to make it a more welcoming place for new owners to begin a journey.

Celebrity homes, historic houses and recently upgraded properties can all take a hit if they stay on the market too long. It's why selling a house at a good price and in a short amount of time takes work. You have to research other area properties.

Selling a house quickly is about more than a single property

You also have to know about general public and private offerings in the area. After all,people are buying more than a house when they move. When people move, they want their children to be near excellent schools. They also want to be close to great entertainment, quality restaurants and business opportunities.

This applies whether people are relocating across country due to a job shift or whether people are simply moving across town. So, before you put your house on the market, think about what makes the area where you currently live a winning choice.

Don't assume that home buyers will want to spend most of their time indoors. You need to be able to offer people more than spacious rooms, an open floor plan and upscale appliances and amenities. Miss out on including this offerings in your home sales pitch and your house could stay on the market for weeks, perhaps even longer. If you're looking for specific reasons as to why your house is still on the market and not selling as quickly as you want it to, check out these reasons:

  • Declining Area - The area where your house is located might have been thriving when you bought your house. If the area has declined significantly, it could make it hard to sell your property.
  • Wrong Price - It's not only a price that's too high that can stall a home sell, setting the price on a house too low could also delay a sale.
  • Property Taxes - After potential home buyers learn that taxes on a house are high, they might turn away from buying the property.
  • Property Damage - Dark homes and too many loud colors aren't the only things that turn buyers away. Damage to property also sends buyers in the other direction. Types of property damage that buyers might not want to deal with include flooding, mold, asbestos and ventilation issues.
  • Pets - Even the sight of pet hairs or a whiff of pet dander can turn off home buyers. Don't just vacuum before open houses,actually wash and clean areas that pets frequent.

Facts are on your side when selling a house

Selling a house is definitely one of those times when waiting doesn't pay off. The longer your house stays on the market, the more likely you are to sell your house at a loss. Although there are no guarantees that you'll sale your house fast regardless of what you do, there are actions that you could take that may shorten the time it takes to go from house marketer to homes seller.

The sooner you start taking these steps, actions like researching comparable properties,the better. By soliciting an experienced, licensed realtor early, you could gain access to valuable research details that you could use to sell your house fast. Keep your eyes wide open. Accept facts that you discover on your own.Also, listen to what your realtor shares with you. Facts, smart marketing and effective negotiating skills could keep you from having to lower the price on  your house to secure the right buyer.
