Tips for Home Sellers

A buyer’s first impression of your home may be the strongest and can be difficult to change. A mediocre first impression will make it difficult to sell the property at anything beyond a mediocre price. On the other hand, a fantastic first impression will virtually guarantee you a better chance of closing your deal at a fantastic price.

Below are some tips to help prepare your house for the market:

  • Make sure your house has curb appeal.
    • Remove any debris, trim plants, bushes and shrubs.
    • Power-wash your driveway, front porch and siding.
    • Consider giving your front door and shutters a new coat of paint.
  • Keep the inside of your house clean and tidy.
    • Remove any trace of pets-fur, food bowls, litter boxes, etc.
    • Clean any carpet stains.
    • Dust your furniture.
    • De-clutter your home-make sure everything has a place. Put items in storage if necessary.
  • Kitchens and bathrooms sell homes-make sure yours are immaculate.
    • Even if you don’t have new appliances, you can make a good impression by deep-cleaning your kitchen and bathrooms.
    • Make sure your counters are clean and de-cluttered.
    • New cabinet hardware is an inexpensive update that can have a big impact.
    • Clean your appliances and organize your fridge and pantry.
  • If you can afford to paint even one room in your house, do it!
    • Start with any rooms that are painted a bright, non-neutral color.
    • A fresh coat of paint in a neutral beige or gray can really make an impact and make your house feel more “move-in ready” to potential buyers.

There are a lot of simple and inexpensive updates you can make to your house to get it market ready.
