5 tips on how to sell a house in San Antonio

Replace broken appliances and touch up walls with fresh coat of paint



Are you in the market to sell your home?

Selling your house can be extremely overwhelming, especially if it’s your first time.

To help you in the process, Texas All Cash Home Buyers has provided some tips on how to get your home ready to sell, if you’re looking for top dollar.

Texas All Cash Home Buyers noted these instructions are if you’re looking to get full retail value for your house sale:

1) Deep clean your home.

Impress future homebuyers with your beautiful residence. Invest time in cleaning your house to get rid of dust, dirt and any stains. Homebuyers are often looking for a blissfully clean model home, especially if they prefer everything immaculate.

If you don’t mind a dirty home, then consider hiring a cleaning service to help you out.

Don’t let homebuyers feel disgusted as soon as they step in the door. Get out in front of your mess.

2) Cultivate a cohesive, neutral style.

This is the time to consider painting your walls to a neutral tone. Not every wall needs to be white, but choose some subtle colors that can help change the perception.

Texas All Cash Home Buyers suggests a soft yellow will help brighten a dark kitchen, while a deep blue or green will help a bright bedroom to feel like a calm place to sleep (but be careful, dark colors will also make rooms feel small).

Splurge a little and hire a top-notch painting company to help you get a nice, clean finish. If you don’t know how to paint, this is not the time to mess up.

3) Fix or replace anything that’s broken.

Check to see if all your appliances are up to date and working properly, such as a dishwasher, your toilets and faucets. Be honest with the homebuyer if something is broken. Don’t try to hide neglected maintenance from the purchaser and, of course, you don’t want to be guilty of fraud. Additionally, make sure you stay in compliance with all the laws.

Hire a home inspector if you want an opinion on what should be updated to help in the selling process.

4) Get expert opinions.

Find a few decent real estate brokers who will help you price your property, but be honest with them. If you’re going to market the property on your own, don’t make enemies by lying about your intentions, the experts said.

5) Get a cash offer with a local business.

If you do not want to sell your home on your own, family-owned and operated Texas All Cash Home Buyers is in the market to buy houses all over the San Antonio area, the company said, adding that they work directly with homeowners in a turnkey system to get homes sold fast.
