How to get your home ready for sale

We get asked all the time, how do I get my home ready for sale? If you want the most money for your home investment, your home has to be the best it can be. We found a great check list HERE as a jumping off point.

So what are some things you can do? Number one is repairs. If a buyer comes in your house and there are cracks on the ceiling and stains on the carpet, it automatically makes them think that you didn’t take care of your house. And no one wants that, however a little work on home repairs and attention to detail can go a long way in the overall presentation of your home. A simple question to ask yourself is how would you feel walking into your home? Would you want to buy it?

Number two is to purge and clean out as much extra clutter and personal items as possible. This might be daunting, but consider this an opportunity to do that massive clean you’ve always wanted to do. Also think about how good it will feel moving onto your new home with only the essential and “must have” items you need already organized and cleaned out.

Staging is very common in real estate to present a home in the best and most neutral way possible. However sometimes it’s not always necessary. Most importantly we can work with you to determine what’s best for your property and your budget. Bottom line, there’s not one right way because there are many options from full staging, a staging consultation using your own furniture or selling the property empty.

Everybody’s home has a different need, therefore if you’d like a free consultation to find out what you can do to get the most money for your home. Just send us a message.
