Tips To Help Sell Your Home

  • Curb Appeal: It is the first thing a prospective buyer will see. Cut the grass, weed the garden, and make sure there isn’t any stuff cluttering up the yard. Remove plants and decorations from the front entrance keeping it clear and open. Sweep regularly so it doesn’t get filled with leaves or dirt. Do the same for the carport and/or driveway.
  • Remove the Clutter: Get rid of items that clutter rooms such as piles of magazines, papers, and other paraphernalia. Ensure that there is a place for everything to make the rooms look spacious. Don’t leave stacked boxes or discarded items in rooms. If necessary, rent a storage unit and put everything away.
  • Clear the Countertop: Take everything off the kitchen and bathroom countertops.
  • Clean Out the Closet: Crowded, messy closets will make a room looked cramped and smaller.
  • Remove Personal Items: Take down family photos. Remove magnets or other items off the refrigerator. A prospective buyer wants to imagine him or herself in the home. Therefore it is beneficial to make the house more neutral.
  • Make Minor Repairs: Fix those leaky faucets and broken doorknobs. Replace any missing shingles, a broken fence, or a cracked window. Finish any home projects that were started.
  • Consider Painting: A fresh coat of paint can go a long way to freshen up a home. Also, if you have a bright pink kitchen or a dark purple dining room, you may consider changing the rooms to a more neutral color to appeal to as many prospective buyers as possible.
  • Give Your House a Clean Fresh Smell: Plug-in deodorizers or scented candles will make a house smell pleasant.
  • Wash the Windows: From the inside rooms look bright and clean for that fresh new start.
