These Top 5 Tips will get your home ready to sell!
Create curb appeal: Allow potential buyers to get a good first impression by making the exterior inviting and taking care of any outdoor maintenance tasks that may have been put off. Spruce up the landscaping for that charming appeal.
Make any Repairs: If you know of things that may need attention around the home, take care of any issues to get your home in tip-top shape before putting it on the market.
Declutter & Organize: Getting ready to sell=getting ready to move, which is a great time to clear out some of the clutter that has accumulated over the years. Also, it’s a great time to organize cabinets and closets…this will help save time when packing and unpacking. And, yes, potential buyers will be checking closets, so organizing will help show off all the storage available.
Deep Clean: Are you guilty of putting off cleaning ceiling fans or window treatments? Now is the time to tackle those tasks because you want your home looking its best when it’s time to list. And remember once on the market you will want to keep your home show ready…do small things that will help with cleaning by removing shoes at the door and creating a space for mail, receipts, etc. so they do not end up covering counters or table tops.
Depersonalize: You do not have to remove all the family photos and heirlooms, but do keep them to a minimum. You don’t want potential buyers to get distracted by your antiques and focus on the beauty and charming details of the home. You want potential buyers to envision themselves living there and that is hard to do when your personal tastes and photos are already there….don’t make them feel like just a visitor, let them imagine living there.
