Our Brokerage – Thinking About Selling Your Home
Here are some tips for getting your home ready for sale:
- Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Major makeovers, not so much. So why not do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Put a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Replace door handles, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer may want to reduce the offering price by $10,000 off the listing price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas.
- Another important thing to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal items in your house, the less a buyer can imagine themselves living there. Pack up most of your personal items. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes.
- Storage is something you can never have enough of. Take half the items out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will always look in closets.
- Curb appeal is important. Spruce up your front yard, trim bushes, paint your front and garage door. Remove any toys or clutter on your porch. Remember many buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door.
