What Turns Off Home Buyers?

What Turns Off Home Buyers?

If you are looking to sell your home, make sure you avoid doing these common things that homeowners tend to do, but that actually turn off home buyers. 

Selling your home is a process we all hope goes smoothly and quickly. It definitely is a process that requires time, energy, and money in order to get the place ready for sale. You may take some of the essential steps toward selling your home like decluttering, remodeling, and staging, but sometimes there are habits you formed which can actually turn off home buyers. Here are a few things that can turn off home buyers.

  1. Pets
    While your cat or dog may be a part of your family, it is by no means a part of anyone else’s family. That pet odor can turn off potential home buyers, so it is important that you deep clean carpets, rugs, and upholstery in which fur can get trapped.
  2. Smoke
    Whether you smoke tobacco or marijuana, it is best to take this habit outside when you are trying to sell your home. The odor from the smoke can become entangled in the fabrics of the home and just turn off about every buyer that comes into your home.
  3. Flags
    Flags represent that for which we stand. Sports teams, nationalities, clubs, and more. But there are certain flags which should not be erected, especially when you are trying to sell your home. Here’s a tip: If the flag you want to erect was part of some Reich or confederation that committed horrendous acts against humanity, it’s best to keep that flag away.
