Ready to sell your home? Preparing for sale will help boost the value of your home, as well as capture the attention of potential buyers. As a seller, it is important to see your home through the eyes of the buyer.
Declutter & Clean
Make sure your home is tidy and organized! You want to present your home at its best during showings. This is also a good opportunity to go through items you may no longer want or need. Clearing out clutter can be an intimidating task, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get things in order and packed up.
A dramatic paint color or wallpaper could throw off potential buyers. You want to focus to be on the room itself and bold colors can throw people off. Taking the time to repaint your walls a neutral color, such as beige or light gray. If you had frames on the walls, fill in the nail holes to increase appeal.
Upgrade Curb Appeal
First impressions matter! From the outside to the inside, buyers are looking to be drawn in. This could include painting your home, or even replacing an old roof. If your home has a yard, maintain the lawn and garden. If not, small improvements to the front steps and door can make the curb appeal of your home more inviting. This includes painting the door, having a welcome mat, plants next to the door, etc.
Renovations, big or small, will add value to your home. The kitchen and bathrooms are a huge focus for buyers. Replacing outdated appliances, adding new tiling, installing modern fixtures will attract buyers and give your home a new, sleek look. New windows are also appealing since they can help save on heating/cooling costs.
Preparing for Showings
Keeping the decor neutral will give you an advantage when showing your home. This allows the buyers to imagine their personal belongings in each space and what it would be like to live there. Staging is a great way to bring simplistic design and an updated look.
Bring in some natural elements to your home will be inviting and give the impression that rooms are bigger. Opening windows, curtains, and blinds will bring in sunlight and potted plants and flowers will add a beautiful touch. Just be sure the flowers aren't too pungent and the plants are healthy.
