1. Clutter, Dirt and Odor
This one is simple: Your home needs to be as clean as physically possible if you want to get the highest price for it. More often than not, this will require carpets to be shampooed, kitchens and bathrooms ‘deep cleaned,’ and in many cases, sellers will need to completely organize or clear out their garages. Best thing to do is start with the inside and work your way out of the house. Make sure that everything is in order by removing unnecessary stuff you’ve piled on over the years.
2. Dated Features
The feeling of a dated home can be caused by a number of factors/features, but it’s an overall feeling that can really hurt your home’s value. There’s obviously a huge range of costs associated with updating the look and feel of your home, but even something as simple as replacing doorknobs and the hardware on your cabinets can make a world of difference. If a professional is required, create a budget and work with someone you can trust. It’s best to consider this early on rather that encounter inevitable problems in the future or during the actual home sale.
3. Unkempt Yard
The outside of your house will be your first impression! It always comes back to curb appeal. If a prospective buyer pulls up to your home and the first thing they notice is how much yard work would be in store for them if they bought the house, that’s obviously not a great start. When things look amazing outside, it makes it much easier to check out the inside with an open mind. The last thing you want is potential buyers deciding they’re not interested before they even step through the front door!
