Preparing your home to sell

Is this a good time to sell?  ABSOLUTELY!  There are more buyers than homes for sale.  Inventory of homes is at a record low.  If you have been thinking of making a move,  now is a great time.  Here are some tips to help you prepare your home to sell.

  1.  UPDATE YOUR CURB APPEAL- Make sure bushes are trimmed. Remove dead plants and trees.  Mow the grass.  Perhaps a fresh coat of paint on your front door.
  2. REPLACE FLOORING AND PAINT WALLS- Determine if your carpets needs replacing or just a deep cleaning. Inspect interior rooms for dirty or scuffed walls that may need a fresh coat of paint. Neutral colors are always recommended like beiges, light grays or off whites.
  3. REMOVE CLUTTER- With day to day living you become accustomed to things piling up and collecting.  Nothing makes a home look smaller and more crowed than clutter.  Pack as much as away in boxes and move to a storage area or somewhere else to make spaces appear larger and more open.
  4. TACKLE THE BASEMENT AND GARAGE-Storage areas can become a catch-all for junk.  Install shelving, pegboards for tools and hanging brackets for bicycles and other equipment. Pitch junk, sell or donate what you don’t need.
