If you’re like most homeowners, you want to get the best price when selling your house. One step on the way to success is to make sure that you’ve done everything possible to make your home market ready by doing necessary repairs, renovations, and staging it properly.
✨ Start with a Deep Cleaning
A clean and polished house can attract prospective buyers and fetch a better price. Start with a thorough cleaning that hits spaces that don’t normally get attention during routine cleanings.
Consider hiring a professional cleaning company to do the deep cleaning. You may want to call in a professional to do things like service the central air conditoning system and heating to make sure they are clean and operating properly.
🗑️ Declutter & Maximize Space
Decluttering begins by going through cabinets, drawers, closets, garages, attics, and basements to clear away items that are no longer used. Afterward, you want to remove all personal photographs, collections, and anything that could be considered controversial.
Make sure that furniture fits the space without being oversized. Too many pieces of furniture in a room or pieces that are too large for the space can make rooms looks small and cramped, which can delay the sale of your home.
🎨 Apply Fresh Paint
In some cases, the best way to freshen up the look of a house and increase the value is to apply fresh paint to the exterior and interior areas. Even if you decide not to paint the entire house, consider painting the front door a bright and welcoming color to create interest.
🕵️ Check Plumbing & Electrical
If you have any question about the home’s wiring, bring in a professional to make sure everything is working properly and safe. Doing this prior to the inspection done when an offer is accepted can keep you from losing money and delaying the sale.
🛁 Kitchens & Bathrooms
You’ve most likely heard that kitchens sell homes. Since most households spend a great deal of time in their kitchens, you’ll want to make sure that potential buyers are impressed with yours.
Bathrooms are just as important when it comes to space and an appealing look. Keep things nuetral when it comes to color and decor to appeal to a broad range of buyers.
🖼️ Add Appealing Decor
When it comes to decor, less is more, so make each thing you choose meaningful and place it with intention. Use bits of greenery to add life to a room that needs a pop of color.
