Preparing Your Home For Sale

Preparing Your Home For Sale

 A few great tips on creating an atmosphere that will charm buyers and make them want to buy your home. Remember that first impressions only come once. Follow these simple tips and create the competitive edge that may help you sell your home quickly!  
Drive Up Appeal -          Trim trees and shrubs, clean out flower beds and invest in some brightly colored flowers. Yellow and white are preferred. Paint the front door and make sure the door bell is working properly, wash the mailbox, keep the porch swept and get an attractive door mat.
Absolute Basics -          Air out the home. People are turned off by the slightest odor. Odors must be eliminated, especially those caused by pets, diapers, or cigarettes.
-          Wash all windows in the home, inside and out.
-          If it has been over a year since the carpets have been cleaned, now is the time to have them cleaned. Bare floors should also be waxed and polished.
-          Put bright light bulbs in every socket. Buyers like bright and cheery.
-          Clean out closets, cabinets and drawers. Closets should appear to have enough room to hold additional items. Get everything off the floor and don’t have the shelves piled to the ceiling.
-          Make sure rooms are not overcrowded with furniture. Select the best pieces and store the rest.
-          Keep the kitchen sparkling clean. Make sure all appliances are clean at all times. Straighten cabinets that appear cluttered and keep floors gleaming.
-          Bathtub, showers and sinks should be freshly caulked. The grout should be clean and in good condition. There should be no leaks in the faucets or traps.
-          If you have limited counter space in the kitchen, keep unnecessary items put away.
-          Keep children’s toys out of the front yard, sidewalks and front porch.
-          Clean the ashes out of the fireplace. If it’s summer time, spray the inside of the fireplace black.
-          Make sure the pull-down staircase is working correctly. Be sure light in the attic is working.
-          The pool needs to be sparkling and free of leaves.
