When you’re selling your loft in DTLA, you want to do everything you can to make sure it appeals to the widest possible range of buyers.
But there are a few things that can bring the whole process to a grinding halt – and they could even prevent you from getting a single offer on your loft.
Check out these three things that could kill the sale of your DTLA loft.
3 Things That Could Kill the Sale of Your DTLA Loft
Let’s take a closer look at each.
Carpet can be expensive to replace, but if it’s stopping you from selling your home, it’s worth it.
Here’s the thing. Many buyers don’t want to deal with carpet – that’s been the trend for quite some time. However, they’ll still buy a home that has carpet in it… unless it’s old, dated, worn or dirty. Carpet doesn’t sell homes, but flooring materials that do help sell homes include:
If you can, you might want to consider talking to your real estate agent about ripping up the carpet that’s in your home before you sell it. Don’t make any major financial decisions about what to do inside without talking to your agent, though – every area (and every building) is different, and if the majority of units in your building are selling with carpet, you may not need to. There are so many other factors that can play a role in whether someone buys your loft, so always talk to your real estate agent before you spend your hard-earned money; you might not need to spend it.
We love our pets… but not everyone does. People who come into your home may notice pet odors that you don’t, or they might be allergic to (or afraid of) animals. It’s incredibly important that you remove as much evidence of your pets as you can when you’re trying to sell your DTLA loft.
Clean up all your pet toys, have your furnishings cleaned to remove lingering odors and take food and litter with you when you leave the house for a showing. If you have pet beds, tuck them away before prospective buyers come over, too.
Clutter is a huge deal-killer. It makes your loft look like it’s poorly maintained, and it makes the entire space appear smaller. Even if buyers are messy people, they want to move into a space that looks easy to keep clean – and if you have clutter everywhere, they’ll get the impression that the home will be the same for them, too.
Clear out all the clutter from your home. It’s hard – but it has to be done. Buyers won’t buy a loft or condo that’s cluttered; that’s the bottom line.
