5 Things That Sell Houses Faster

White house porchThere are certain things that most homebuyers want. If you can deliver them, you have a better chance of selling your house. Here are 5 things Real Estate expert Barbara Corcoran says sell houses faster:

  1. White Exteriors.  Lighter colors are more attractive than dark ones to the majority of house hunters. “People don’t like brown houses.”  (If the house is as charming as this all the better)

Coming in a close second to white houses: yellow ones. I believe it!  I’ve seen a house get a fresh coat of yellow paint and it sold almost immediately.

Steel door

  1. A Beautiful Front Door. Forget the aluminum storm doors or cheap-looking doors with faded or chipping paint. Buyers decide within the first 10-15 seconds of seeing a house whether they’ll buy it (or not). That makes the front door important.

  2. Stainless Steel Refrigerator.When people see a stainless fridge, they assume the whole kitchen is more updated and modern. It doesn’t matter if the rest of the appliances are stainless or not. Most people focus on the refrigerator, so spend your money there.

  3. Clean and Clutter-Free Rooms.This should be a no-brainer, but based on the houses I see in the real estate listings every day, there are a lot of people who still don’t get it. Pack everything away that you can do without, including your dolls and collectibles.     chandelier light

  1. Light.  Homebuyers want to see rooms that are light and bright. Clean the windows, remove heavy drapes, paint rooms lighter colors, cover dark upholstery with white slipcovers, and replace colored carpet with a pale neutral if you can afford it. After curb appeal, light and bright rooms sell houses faster than anything else.
