It's about that time of year when most people start to plan on putting their house on the market. Whether they are just testing the waters or are in a position needing to relocate, now is the time of year when it does become most appealing to do so.
I've put together a few tips that will help to separate you from your neighborhood competition:
This is obvious; you would never purchase a dirty car or a dirty new jacket. Get everything as clean as possible and try to make your house look brand new. Anything that isn’t in pristine condition will be a huge deterrent to potential buyers.
Make all your woodwork and cabinetry shine. This is the most important in the kitchen, which is a huge selling point for most buyers.
Get all of your carpets and rugs professionally steam cleaned. If pets have damaged your carpet, you may need to replace it.
Go through all your light fixtures and clean them. Nobody wants to see the dead bugs that have accumulated there throughout the years.
Thoroughly clean all of the windows. It isn’t enough to clean them on the inside. Get out the ladder and clean them on the outside as well.
Hopefully some of these tips help put you out in front of your competition and if you are thinking of selling your home, feel free to reach out to schedule an in-home consultation.
