3 Basic Steps to Get Your House Ready to Sell
Before hiring a realtor, determining your home price, and listing it for sale, it is best to make sure that the house itself is ready and sellable. You want to make sure it is comparable (if not exceed) to the ones in the market. Here are 3 basic steps
to getting your house ready to sell.
1. FIX ANY REPAIRS
Identify and complete any repairs your property needs before listing. When you sell your home, the buyer will most likely hire a professional inspector to inspect your property for damages and potential problems. It’s best to take care of those problems
before listing your real estate so that they do not become potential deal breaking issues later on.
2. ADD UPGRADES
Evaluate whether or not your home needs updating. Sometimes updating is needed to receive a good offer. If most of the homes around you are offering current upgrades and your property does not, the chances are high that your home will be on the market
for a while and eventually receive offers much lower than you prefer. Updating your home, when it’s done strategically, is a good investment.
3. MAKE IT LOOK NEW
The goal is to take all the “wear and tear” out of your home. This usually involves touching up the paint, shampooing carpets, touching up baseboards, adding fresh mulch, trimming bushes, and deep cleaning every room in the house. Make your home as clean
and neutral as possible; take all personal pictures and personal items and pack in a box, out of sight. If possible, hire a professional home stager to help arrange your home.
