Selling your home will require preparations! Here’s some things you can do to minimize the last-minute chores and tasks that goes hand-in-hand with selling:
Figure out how much cost you may incur for repairs and upgrades so that you can either budget for it or know how much would be appropriate for buyers to knock off the sale price, if you want them to take on those costs. Planning ahead will make sure you’re on the right track and not overspending.
Deep cleaning is not fun, but it’s very necessary when you’re getting ready to sell. Don’t want to pay for a cleaning crew? Depending on how large your home is, you may want to recruit a squad of friendly volunteers. Just offer some delicious food and perhaps a future ride to the airport. It could even turn out as a way to bond and strengthen friendships!
Make sure your yard is at its peak! This is something you can and should start improving a few months before you actually list. Yard work and gardening can hardly be drastically improved overnight. Your yard and the front appearance of your house will be your first impression. Make sure to get its best, possible potential come out.
The majority of homeowners have a lot of stuff, nothing in particular, just stuff. Pack the non-essentials and store it elsewhere when it’s getting close to listing time. Sticky and dirty floors make very bad impression. Uncluttered floors appear larger, cleaner, and more attractive.
You know what gets pretty dirty and needs a checkup from time to time? Chimneys and fireplaces! If you have one or more, get them cleaned and inspected by experts to make sure they look pristine, and to prevent a nasty repair surprise!
