The best time of year to list, and sell your home is in the Spring. The weather is nicer drawing more people out, and the days last longer. It is important when selling your home that it appeals to potential buyers and potential buyers. Here are a few tips before you list your home.
A fresh coat of paint on the interior will improve the appearance of you home, and make it look fresh and clean. A neutral color of paint will appeal to most buyers, so they can imagine their furniture in the home. New paint on the exterior will also make your home more appealing. If painting isn’t in the budget make sure that the walls and doors are clean from smudges, dust, grime and dirt.
Most potential home buyers pay close attention to the floors in the house. First impressions count. Consider removing old flooring, and putting in new tile, laminates, hardwood, or carpets. Other options that won’t break the bank are; steam cleaning existing carpets, deep cleaning any tile, grout, hardwoods and laminates. It is very important to have your floors as clean as possible.
Curb appeal is important! First impressions are everything. Make sure your lawn looks the best that it can. Have the lawn cut, weeds removed, add a pop of color and plant some flowers. If your mailbox needs to be replaced now is a good time to do so. Clean the windows that look into the house. The backyard is equally important. Stage the backyard with a table & chairs, and grill, this can give the home buyer an idea of what they can bring into the home.
The last thing a potential buyer wants to do is walk into a disaster, or a dirty home. It is best to organize your home, and declutter; decluttering is great way to make the home feel bigger. Small touches like making the beds, picking things off the floor, making sure everything is in place is important. Any lingering smells are also a no-no.
Renovating the Kitchen/Bathrooms
If you have been thinking about doing renovations the kitchens, and bathrooms are great places to put your money. There is a greater return for these renovations. Most buyers want to see updated kitchens, and bathrooms. If there is no room in your budget to renovate consider taking down old wall paper, and changing fixtures like lighting, and remove old, dated hardware.
