Following are the many different things that can scare off a buyer when you put your house up for sale.
If you have pets then it is very likely that your house smells like them and this can be a very big problem for the person who wants to buy your house. In order to solve this problem you have to clean your carpets. A great tip is to sprinkle baking soda on the carpets before you vacuum them. You also need to get rid of the litter box before you stage an open house. Another thing that can scare off a buyer who is interested in your property is a rundown yard. Even if you have a beautiful house, but if your yard has overgrown grass and weeds then it can be very difficult for the buyer to focus on your house. If you pile up everything in your closets at the last-minute then it can also prove to be a very big mistake because there is a great chance that the buyers will take a look inside the closet and if they look at the mess which is piled up there is a good chance that they will think that your house lacks the space to store everything.
Damages to the property can also be very unappealing for the buyers such as, cracked or broken windows, walls with holes and leaking roofs etc. are the type of damages that can prove to be deal breakers for the buyers.
