4 Steps to Take Before a Home Showing

By Hannah Whittenly

Buyers want to know exactly what they’re getting when purchasing a home. As it’s a major investment, all potential homebuyers will want to inspect your entire property while keeping an eye out for any signs of damage. What can you do to make sure your home is ready for public scrutiny? Here’s what you need to know:

Thoroughly Clean the Home

Before allowing anyone into your home, you should have it thoroughly cleaned. This means dusting, vacuuming and taking out the trash. It may also mean taking steps to remove smoke or other odors from the air. If walls or other surfaces have mold on them, be sure to clean them prior to an open house. In addition to increasing the odds that someone makes an offer, taking the time to eliminate mold will go a long way toward reducing the risk of potential buyers getting sick.

Take Time to Stage the Home

Prospective buyers want to get an idea as to how a given space within a home can be used. For instance, they may want to see if there’s enough room for their bed in the master bedroom or if there’s enough room for the couch in the living room. If you have a finished attic or basement, be sure to showcase it as a space a buyer can make good use of.

Remove Potentially Offensive Items

When you show a house, you want to present a neutral look to potential buyers. This may mean getting rid of posters that make political or religious references. You may also want to hide items with sports logos, especially if you live in an area where rivalries are huge. By doing so, you will allow those who visit your home to imagine themselves living in the space without having anything to cloud their vision.

Make Necessary Repairs Before an Open House

If you’re planning on making repairs prior to selling the home, do them before allowing anyone to see the space. For instance, you may want to repair the leaking water heater or replace shingles that have fallen off the roof as soon as possible. You should also make sure the garage door opens and closes properly and that all of the lights work.

If you want to sell your home in a timely manner, you must know how to prepare the space for public viewing. Making repairs, removing offensive items and properly staging the property may all increase the odds of selling your home.

By taking these steps before a showing, you may very well increase a buyer’s confidence that the home is worth putting an offer on.

Pending Home Sales Edge Up

Pending home sales edged up in December, 0.5 percent in the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI). The PHSI posted 110.1 in December, up from 109.6 in November. The Index is based on contract signings.

Two of the four major regions in the U.S. saw increases in the PHSI in December, with the South up 2.6 percent to 126.9 and the West up 1.5 percent to 101.7. The Northeast and Midwest saw decreases, down 5.1 percent to 93.9 and 0.3 percent to 105.0, respectively.

“Another month of modest increases in contract activity is evidence that the housing market has a small trace of momentum at the start of 2018,” says Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR. “Jobs are plentiful, wages are finally climbing and the prospect of higher mortgage rates [is] perhaps encouraging more aspiring buyers to begin their search now.”

Yun cautions, however, that these improvements might not raise sales this year.

“Sadly, these positive indicators may not lead to a stronger sales pace,” Yun says. “Buyers throughout the country continue to be hamstrung by record low supply levels that are pushing up prices, especially at the lower end of the market.”

Additionally, sales could be slowed by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, according to Yun.

“In the short term, the larger paychecks most households will see from the tax cuts may give prospective buyers the ability to save for a larger down payment this year, and the healthy labor economy and job market will continue to boost demand,” says Yun. “However, there’s no doubt the nation’s most expensive markets with high property taxes are going to be adversely impacted by the tax law. Just how severe is still uncertain, but with homeownership now less incentivized in the tax code, sellers in the upper end of the market may have to adjust their price expectations if they want to trade down or move to less expensive areas. This could, in turn, lead to both a decrease in sales and home values.”

Realtor.com® Senior Economist Joseph Kirchner, Ph.D., said the following about today’s Pending Home Sales numbers, which foreshadows a very competitive spring buying season.

“Today’s 0.5 percent increase in December pending home sales shows just how far buyers are willing to go to close on their dream home. Holiday plans and winter weather usually result in a December real estate slow down, but not this time. Unsuccessful summer buyers have stayed in the market well into winter months. Today’s increase is setting us up for strong existing winter home sales and foreshadows a very competitive spring buying season.”
