6 Tips For Selling A Small House

When the property is small, it can be difficult to convince your buyer to not focus on the size of the home. Directing them toward the future cost-saving potential of a small home can prove beneficial for everyone involved. Use these 6 tips to guide buyers towards the best attributes a small home can offer and what their potential savings could be.


1. Examine the Exterior

Sometimes the outdoor area can be quite spacious. If your home has a large exterior, capitalize on that opportunity as this can be a key selling point for potential buyers. On the other hand, if the exterior is as equally small as the house it is still possible to give the appearance of a larger outdoor area. One option to accomplish this is to position taller plants closer to the house and place shorter plants farther away to give the illusion of a larger space.


2. Organize

Decluttering is key. Removing items that are not essential to the presentation will help open up the home’s interior. Even removing unnecessary furniture before showings or open houses will enhance the viewing presentation.


3. Highlight The Benefits of Minimal Living

Enlighten the potential buyer to the vast benefits of owning a small home. Some of the benefits can include lower property taxes, utility costs, and a smaller area to clean and maintain.


4. Location, Location, Location

Make it known if there are any amenities within a reasonable distance. Buyers will want to know of any entertainment, restaurants, and shops nearby. Highlighting the location of the property will be a major plus for the buyer. Remind the buyer of what exists beyond the home’s four walls.


5. Maximize Your Lighting

Opening the shades and allowing natural light in is an easy trick to give a small room a more spacious appearance. If a room is dimly lit, utilize tall corner lamps to create the impression of a taller space.


6. Go Green

Highlight the eco-friendliness of a smaller home. A lower square-footage home will typically use less energy. Most potential buyers will be interested in the economic value of a home, so highlighting the energy-efficient features of the listing will help magnify the benefits of a smaller home.
