Are You Ready To Sell
Selling your home doesn′t just mean hiring a realtor and sticking a sign out front. There are plenty of preparations that should be in place to get the best offer in the shortest amount of time. Follow these steps to have your home, buyer-ready!
Repair. Even if cracks in the wall or squeaky floorboard doesn't bother you, it may be a factor for someone else. If you have hardwood floors that need refinishing, be sure to get it done—hardwood is a huge selling point. When buying a home you want it to be just right, so don't be afraid to go the extra mile to even grease up a squeaky door or stuck sliding door. Finally, don’t forget to tend to exterior needs—fences, shingles, sidewalks, etc. Curb appeal is everything!
Neutralize. When buyers are looking at a home they want to be able to envision themselves in your home. Before showing try to remove statement pieces or personal photos. While a pink wall may have been great for your daughter it may not be for the next occupant. Try to paint loud colored walls to more neutral- beige, white, tan.
Stage. Once your house is clean and updated, it’s time dress it up. To help draw the buyer's attention to the little perks of the room, try using small decor touches that will help the area look great. Decor possibilities can vary from lamps, mirrors, pillows, flowers, and patio furniture.
