Selling your home can be exciting and stressful at the same time. Here are 5 simple tips to help you sell your home quickly and for top dollar.
➢ Tip #1: The entry way sets first impressions. So make sure it’s in great condition with fresh paint and clean floors. If the entry tile floor has build-up, consider using a commercial stripper and re-waxing.
➢ Tip #2: Clean out about 1/3rd to 1⁄2 of your furniture. You want your home to look uncluttered, and the rooms to feel open and bright. The average home has too much furniture for showing, and you need to move anyhow. So you might as well pack away any furniture that clutters any rooms in the home.
➢ Tip #3: Put away nick-knacks and items that make the home look overly personal to YOU. You don’t want your buyer feeling that they would never fit in the home because it’s got so many of your personal items in it. Put away cluttered photos and other objects that will detract away from the home.
➢ Tip #4: Do a thorough interior maintenance review: Oil squeaky doors, tighten doorknobs, replace burned-out lights, clean and repair ALL windows, and repair leaking taps and toilets. Look for chipped paint and cracked plaster or drywall that needs repairing.
➢ Tip #5: It’s a good idea to have all windows professionally washed. And clean all window shades and blinds.
With these simple tasks you'll give your prospective buyers a good impression.
