7 Tips To Get Your Home Ready To Sell:
1. Curb Appeal – you only get one chance for a first impression so be sure the first thing prospective buyers see of your home entices them to want to see more. This includes fresh landscaping, a clean roof, and pressure washing.
2. Less is more – minimize your furnishings and accessory collections and make all of the spaces in your home look and feel more spacious. Buyers are very visual and they will try to see their furnishings and family living in the home. Spend time cleaning out your closets. Organized closets leave buyers with the impression that you have plenty of storage space.
3. Clean – You want your home to look clean and smell fresh. Have a professional cleaner do a deep clean including windows and carpets. Then invite a 3rd party over to do detect any odors that you might not be aware of.
4. Lighting – bright light and open windows always make the property look and feel inviting for buyers.
5. Repairs – Are there any repairs that need to be addressed before placing your home on the market?
6. Paint – Update with fresh paint using neutral colors to appeal to the masses. This is the most inexpensive way to update and makes the biggest impact. Contact our design specialist for the best results.
7. Stage – A professional design specialist can enhance your home with new ideas for your furniture and accessory arrangement with tips to showcase and maximize your homes best features.
Exterior Home Improvements:
We’ve all heard the old adage that you never get a second chance to make a first impression; never is that more true than when it comes to selling your home. Thus the reason why curb appeal improvements always top the charts in recouping cost/return on investment (ROI).
Exterior improvements generate higher returns than interior. (Especially true in the south, where the style trend of outside living – decks, patios, fire pits, pergolas are appreciated by buyers.)
Remodeling the exterior is as much about maintenance as it is about curb appeal.
