Today, we'll talk about Topt Top 5 Steps To Get Your House Ready For Sale
If you have ever thought about selling your home, you've probably wondered how to get it ready for sale. There's a lot of work that goes into selling a home. It takes time and effort to make sure the house looks good, but it can be done. If you have some time and want to make sure your home is in tip-top shape, here are some 5 tips on what to do.
#1 DECLUTTER & DONATE
First, you should get rid of all the clutter. Clutter is one of the main things that turn buyers off. You don't need to get rid of everything, but if you haven't used something in six months or more, you should consider getting rid of it. The less there is to distract from the beauty of your home, the better.
A lot of our sellers use this time to donate some of their extra stuff to worthy organizations and schedule pick-ups.
#2 FIRST IMPRESSIONS
Next, you should clean up any problems that deter your home from having curb appeal. This includes weeds, grass that is overgrown, and anything else that detracts from the overall look of your property. Cleaning up your yard will make it easier for potential buyers to imagine themselves living there, but most importantly, is the first impression they get when they first pull up to your front yard. I've heard many stories when agents report that their clients did not want to step foot inside the house just because of the way it looks from outside.
#3 FIX WHAT IS BROKEN
You should fix and get rid of anything that is broken. Broken items should be fixed or replaced. Broken windows and doors are a huge turn-off for buyers, It is much harder to sell a home with broken windows and doors than one that is 100% ready in move-in condition. If you want to receive TOP DOLLAR when selling your property, your property must be in TIP-TOP SHAPE.
Fixing all the dings and scratches from all the years of occupancy is a good way to start the preparations of selling your home.
#4 CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN
As you start the preparations to sell your home, cleaning your house to sell is a priority from the very beginning. Creating a checklist can help you stay on track. This is the time for a deep cleaning to turn your home into a house that really impresses all prospective buyers, that will come with intentions to buy.
You may have to consider using professional cleaners and invest some money into the preparation of your home... once you see the results, it will be worth it.
#5 DON'T TEST THE WATERS
Selling a home with a "just testing the water" attitude will not lead you to a positive outcome. Especially when it comes to the pricing of the property. Every house has a reputation, and you need to protect it. As you accumulate "Days on Market" your chances of getting your home sold for the highest amount it can bear is almost impossible. You will end up attracting only low-ball offers looking for a bargain as your home sits unsold with the appearance that "there must be something wrong with that property being in the market so loooong!".
