8 Tips to help you sell your home – FAST
It’s that time of year. You’ve got to get your house ready to sell quickly before the snow and the winter weather hit our area! Here are some tips that can help your home stand out on the market:
Tip #1: Think like a home shopper. Take a look at other homes for sale in your community – how does your compare? What does your yard look like compared to the other homes? Is your garage and basement clean and organized so potential home buyers can see the space? Compare one house to another and consider which one you would buy, if you were shopping for a new home.
Tip #2: Put together a list of projects. List ten things that need changing, finishing, or well cleaned.
Tip #3: The Big Purge. You’re not alone in your accumulation of “stuff”, but potential home buyers don’t want to see the stuff that you haven’t used in the past six months. Box it up, sell it, or rent a Storage-On-Site container and keep it safe and secure until you’re ready to move into your next home.
Tip #4: Update your light fixtures. It makes a big difference to potential home buyers, and is an inexpensive fix that can make your home stand out among the competition.
Tip #5: Clean Hardwood Floors. Some hardwood floors may require professional attention, but you should star with a cleaning/restoring conditioner found at many home improvement stores.
Tip #5: Look at your Bathroom. They need to be spotless (free of your stuff) and ultimately look like a mini-spa with fresh towels, etc. Consider new faucets, shower heads, toilet seats and light fixtures.
Tip #6: Focus on your Kitchen. Examine your existing appliances, clean out the fridge, and eliminate items on the counters and in the cabinets.
Tip #7: Light bulbs. Have the proper bulb in a fixture is essential, look and see what is working and replace burned out or broken bulbs.
Tip #8: Plan for Curb Appeal. You’ll need to adjust for the season, but remember first impressions matter.
