Is it time for you to sell your home? We know that it can be a daunting task, but we are here to help you navigate the prep work with ease. With a bit of hard work and determination your home could sell for more and receive more offers just by doing some of the things we are going to talk about. Buckle up because today we are going to share 7 things to do before listing your home for sale.
The first thing to do when preparing to sell your home is declutter. Go through every room in your house and sell, throw out, or donate items that you do not use or want. This will go a long way in showing your potential buyers that their items will be able to fit in your home.
2. Deep Clean
Showing a dirty home can be a huge turn off for buyers. Make sure you take the time to deep clean your home. Now, we understand that this is a huge task, but it can be broken down into cleaning one room a day until the whole house is shining!
When selling your home it is important to create a blank canvas so that buyers can visualize living there. Try to remove any large family photos that can distract buyers from these visualizations.
4. Touch Up or Repaint
A simple coat of paint can completely transform your living areas. We recommend painting your walls light neutral tones and touching up as needed. This will help showcase how large your spaces really are. If you need help choosing a paint color contact our office, our designers can help!
5. Repair Minor Damages
Make sure to repair any loose handles, holes in the wall, and replace any missing light bulbs. Although these are small things they can make potential buyers question about other damages around your home. Make it as move-in ready as possible!
6. Enhance Curb Appeal
Some small changes to your home's exterior can make your buyer's first impression a good one. Some things to think about are painting the front door, planting some colorful flowers, and trimming your trees. These simple tasks can make your home much more inviting.
7. Consider Home Staging
Nothing revives a home more than perfectly selected furnishings! As stagers, we know the real estate market which means that we know what furniture sells and what doesn’t. We evaluate your home and bring in new items that will wow your potential buyers. It is important to not take offense by the recommendations of stagers, we are simply here to help you sell your home fast (and for more money)!
