Preparing Your Home for Sale
When getting your home ready for sale, here are some things you can do that can help selling it faster:
Declutter - get rid of excess furniture (put in a storage, donate, sell on craigslist or a garage sale), tidy cabinets and closets. Too much furniture makes the home look small and messy closets and cabinets give the impression that there is not enough storage in the house.
Make some small fixes - fill in cracks, neutralize/refresh wall paint if necessary, oil hinges, repair leaky faucets. Small things like this can break the deal.
Clean - Put some elbow grease to deep clean your home and keep it that way. Clean kitchen, appliances, bathrooms, windows.
Curb appeal - there is no second chance to make a first impression. This is very true when it comes to selling your home. Cut the lawn and trim the bushes, apply mulch in garden beds, plant some seasonal flowers, pressure wash driveways and walkways, clean gutters.
Price your home right - a Realtor that knows the neighborhood can give you a very good idea on how to price your home.
Ready for showings - hide your valuables, open the drapes, keep your pets out of sight. Make sure your house looks and smells great.
