This is definitely not the time to become a house flipper, in fact for some it?s difficult to just get rid of a property at cost. If you?re thinking about unloading your home or investment property, you?re obviously going to want to get the highest possible return on your investment. To do this you may have to adopt some house flipper strategies.
Invest to make money. In every residential market there are things that people want in their homes and things they do not. It ranges from the most simple things in some properties, where they want to see a clean and freshly painted place to the most complex in others where marble, granite and amenities are highly desired. You have to know your market and know what the trends are in your area and then try to incorporate a few of them into your home so you can advertise them and make them a draw for prospective buyers. Don?t go into debt trying to make the sale, but take some steps to create highlights.
Look at the property. You may have good feelings in a home but new visitors don?t know this so it?s your job to set the stage. Make the home feel inviting but not cluttered. If you have a highlight photo of the property, like a beautifully lit winter scene or blooming trees and flowers, put them up so guests can see what the place looks like in other seasons. But remove all personal photos and other effects that make the place yours.
