If you are in the market to sell your home this spring, there are a few things you will want to do in order to sell for top dollar.
Every home-buyer is looking for extra storage space, and we all want to envision our things fitting perfectly into our next home. TIP: Before listing your home, remove non essential items from hall and bedroom closets, as well as kitchen and bathroom cupboards. Spend some time to neatly organize what’s left. This will give the illusion of more space and present well to potential buyers.
Next to the perfect location, a home with good lighting is everything. TIP: Spend some time cleaning your windows, taking down heavy drapes and update the light bulbs in your home to LED. Making your home bright and warm will leave a glowing impression and make it that much more sellable.
A fresh coat of paint can make your home feel fresh and remove wear and tear. TIP: Homebuyers today are looking for neutral spaces that they can easily move into. Spend a little bit of money and paint over dark or bright walls with a light grey or beige in order to maximize your homes show power.
Everyone loves to personalize their space, but this can be a detriment when selling your home as potential buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there. TIP: Get rid of a third of your things, including family photos, memorabilia and personal keepsakes. Depending on your home, consider hiring a stager to showcase the best use of the rooms in your house.
The exterior of the home is the first impression you have to make potential homebuyers fall in love! TIP: Take the time to spruce up the front by repainting your door, replace the house numbers, add a few potted plants to flank the entryway, add a new welcome mat, or trim down the shrubbery. If weather permits, make sure the grass is cut, power wash the walkway and keep things looking neat and tidy.
