How Prepare Your Home For Sale
Updated: Feb 3, 2021
Improve to landscape
Curb appeal is the first impression for home buyers. A home with poor landscaping gives a bad impression and leaves buyers with a less favorable view.
Plant flowers & trees/ bushes
Invest in sod
Mow the grass
Again a bad first impression is dooming, a bad outside will give buyers the impression that the inside is in disrepair.
Pressure wash the outside
Clean the gutters
De-weed the cracks in any concrete
Take the time to make any glaring repairs to your home. No buyer wants to buy a house that they perceive as full of problems. e.g. Leaks, windows, or any other problems. Contact a remodeler & repair expert such as Custom Integrity Homes.
Make the Front Porch Inviting
Consider repainting your door with a bright color, adding a new welcome mat, and replacing the house numbers to give a fresh and inviting impression. Also,
be sure to sweep any dirt & clutter from the area.
Clutter is proven to make people feel anxious or stressed. This is the last thing you want buyers to feel during the walkthrough.
Remove the following:
Trash - magazines, mail, and other objects lying around
Make sure all tables & counters are cleaned off
Opening blinds & curtains makes a room feel inviting and larger.
Put out calming air fresheners, make sure any stubborn smells are gone from the space. Remove any litter boxes or other bad-smelling items.
Clean All Surfaces
From sweeping, garages & carports to furniture and fans make sure every surface in your house is clean.
