Getting an Unbiased Opinion Before You Sell

You’ve decided to sell your home but you’re not sure what you should do to make it look more appealing to buyers. In your eyes, your home is perfect. That, of course, is how it should be. Your home was decorated to be perfect for you. It’s designed for your comfort. But everyone has different tastes, and you want to make sure that your home looks almost like a blank canvas to potential buyers. But how do you know what to do to change it?

Getting an unbiased opinion is actually a very smart idea and is something that you can easily do in order to help you to figure out what changes you can make to your home to make it more appealing. Opinions like these mean your home could sell far faster and for more money than you imagined, but where do you turn? 

Talk to people who haven’t been to your home. Your co-workers make be a great start. These people who haven’t seen your home will walk into it with fresh eyes and will be able to tell you what they think should change. Ask them to take a notebook through the house (without your presence, just as it would be for a walkthrough) and to write down everything they think about each room. That will give you the unbiased results you want.

If you don’t have any coworkers you’d trust, ask distant relatives or friends who have never been to your home. The goal is to ask someone who has never seen your home to give their honest opinion. And remember to take the opinion as constructive criticism. They’re not there to judge you but to help you sell your home as quickly as possible.
