What You Can Do If Your Home Isn’t Selling

Have you been trying to sell your beautiful, nearly perfect Canadian home for what seems to be quite a long time? If so, you are likely wondering why it is taking so long to sell and if there is anything you can do to speed the process up a bit.

If this is you, here are a few things you can do to help the process if your Canadian home just isn’t selling as it is.


Invest In A Good Set Of Paints

It may sound silly, but any potential buyer that has ever seen photos of your home in catalogs, in person, or online can tell if you have use poor quality paints in your home. They can also tell if it has been a while since the last time you painted each room. These rooms just simply appear dirty, dull, or dingy even if you have taken the time and effort to hand wash each wall with care. If you can’t afford to repaint every room in your house with high quality paint, then make sure to focus on bathrooms and kitchens. When painting bathrooms and kitchens it is important to invest in a high quality primer paint with a light shade of a bright color. These bright colors will make the space look larger, cleaner, and more welcoming.


Try Having Your Home Professionally Staged

If you have tried for a while to sell your home in exactly the way that it is naturally, try investing the time and money into having your home professionally staged. These professionally know how to make potential buyers fall in love with the spaces in your home. They can make small spaces look cozy, larger, and useful. These qualities are what potential buyers are looking for because they ultimately want to see how they can best use the rooms in your home for their own purposes and enjoyment.


Touch Up The Doors And Entryways

The front door to your home will be one of the first things that any potential buyer will be looking at. It can actually deter buyers from wanting to see anymore of the home if it doesn’t look good from the road. Take the time to put a fresh layer of paint or stain on the door to cover any aging spots, dings, and scratches. If you are feeling festive, try decorating with a small wreath or door decoration that compliments whatever season you are selling your home in. Remember, the entryways inside of the house are easily touched up with stain as well and can transform the appeal of the home instantaneously to a handful of potential buyers.


Fix All Of The Little Things

You may not think that the tiny crack in the baseboard is a big deal to you, but it could make a difference to your potential buyer. Whenever a potential buyer sees a repair that they must do, then they start to notice each and every small detail from the dent in the door to the one spot behind the chair in the living room that is worn down from where your dog laid for years. You can start this process by checking all of the components of your home that you haven’t looked at in quite a while. Make sure all of the electrical covers are in good condition, that the windows seal well, and that you have covered any worn spots in the carpet.
