If you are planning to relocate soon, you might be needing to sell your current home. To attract potential buyers, you’ll want to have your current home looking clean, fresh, and inviting. Your home might even be in need of aesthetic or functional upgrades. If you’re putting your home on the market soon, take a look at these four tips to keep in mind to make it a stress-free and profitable experience!
Get rid of the clutter. Also a good tip for the new year, de-cluttering your home will make it more appealing to prospective buyers. Many homes accumulate lots of stuff as the years go by. Begin by going through everything in your house and determine what you can take to storage, donate, or throw away. In addition to making your house look more tidy to potential buyers, de-cluttering will help you sort out what’s most important and start afresh!
Thorough Cleaning. Even if you keep your house clean all the time, give it an extra thorough cleaning before putting your house on the market. Put some elbow grease into it! Potential buyers will notice a spotless house over one that is just your everyday “clean.”
Use Neutral Colors in Your Décor. Since you will likely be showing your house to a wide range of prospective buyers, it’s best to have walls and cabinets painted in neutral hues. For example, there may be some people who do not find brightly-colored or aggressive décor appealing in a home. You want every prospective buyer to picture the house as one they’d feel comfortable living in!
Repairs and Upgrades. This may be the most expensive tip, but home repairs and even upgrades may be necessary to successfully sell your home. Repairing leaky faucets, faulty light fixtures, and re-caulking windows are easy places to start. Depending on the age of your house, you might also need to consider upgrading lighting systems and wiring, major kitchen appliances, or even doors and windows. If your house is older, a shiny modern upgrade might just seal the deal for a prospective buyer!
