PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR MOST PROFITABLE SALE
First impressions are vitally important. Step back and look at your house with the same critical eyes you would use to buy a new home. What do you like about your home that you can emphasize? What features need repair or updating?
- Keep the lawn trimmed and neat. Flowers and shrubs are always appealing. Make sure the walkways to your home are clean of debris.
- Paint any outside trim that is faded or worn.
- Be sure roof is intact and gutters are properly cleaned and free of debris.
- Be sure tools and equipment in garage are put away properly and do not clutter.
- See that the entrance to your home is free of clutter and appears inviting.
- Flowers, soft music, and candles are always inviting.
- Paint any walls and woodwork that appear worn or faded.
- Keep to neutral colors and avoid flowery or "busy" wallpaper.
- Remove excess clutter or furniture from rooms and closets.
- Remove excessive family portraits in order to give buyers a chance to picture themselves in your house as their new home.
- Repair broken window panes, leaky faucets or plumbing that is in need of repair.
- See that windows and doors open and close freely.
- Closets appear larger when not cluttered. Keep them orderly. Pack up the clothes that are not in season.
- Keep blinds and curtains open to allow plenty of light to flood the rooms. Keep on bright lights to give a cheerful atmosphere.
- See the house is free of unpleasant odors.
- Keep beds made, toys put away and sink free of dishes.
- Repair caulking around tub or shower and keep clean of mildew and soap film.
- Try to be gone from the house while buyers are inspecting in order to not intimidate them.
- Always discuss your concerns with your real estate agent.
