Tips On Getting Your House Ready To Sell

Selling Your House 

      Fixing up your house to get the best dollar might not be as expensive as what you might think, especially if it is close to being ready to sell. A house that has major plumbing or electrical problems is going to cost you some money and needs to be fixed. But for the most part, focusing on the minor stuff is a good idea.

     If you are thinking about doing major bathroom or kitchen remodeling, you might want to reconsider, as a lot of times the new owner wants to make major changes of their own to match their tastes. Instead, the thing to do in many cases is to repair things such as the shower door or leaky sink faucet, or making sure all the burners on your range is working. Make sure everything in your cabinets doesn’t look cluttered. Getting rid of eyesores should be higher up on your priority list than replacing your carpet if it is in reasonably good shape, as an example. If your carpet is in reasonably good shape, shampooing it is a good idea.

     Simple things to get your house ready to sell are things such as making sure that you replace all of the burned out light bulbs, both inside and outside. Beds should be made, no clothes on the floor, no dirty dishes in the sink, trash cans all emptied, bathroom mirrors cleaned. Also, make sure all TV’s and radios are turned off while showing a house.

     There should not be any clutter anywhere in your house, or at least keep it to a minimum. Potential buyers want to envision their stuff in your house, and they can do that a lot easier if your stuff isn’t there. The less clutter, the better.

     What do people see when they first drive up to your house? ‘First impressions are lasting impressions’, as the saying goes, and that is certainly true when trying to sell your house. Make sure the outside of your house looks clean, free of kids’ bikes, lawn is mowed, weeds are pulled, hedges are trimmed, no blown off roof shingles, and house has recently been painted within the last 2 years, branches picked up from the last wind. Make sure all of your windows are washed.

     These are just a few things to help you get started, and you will undoubtedly come up with other work that needs to be done.

     Ask your realtor if there is anything else you should do, and many times they will also have a suggestion list.

     Once your house is finished and ready to sell, we wish you the best result.
