Selling your house and putting your home up for sale is a pretty big deal, and as such certainly one you should certainly take seriously! I’m here to guide you through this strenuous, yet usually exciting and freeing process. It shouldn’t be one that slows you down, stresses or depresses you, it should be one that marks new beginnings. Below are some fantastic tips and snippets you should be sure to utilize before you move in order to have the best experience possible
Pests Can Draw Buyers Away When Selling Your House
Pests can be hinder in selling your house.
1. This may seem obvious, but is your house pest free? Rodents, insects, and critters of all kind can secretly find their way into homes. Even if you see no obvious signs, having a certificate that you were inspected for them recently is certainly a big plus one for the buyer. A small investment could possibly see big returns here, plus it’s just sanitary for everyone involved.
Cleaning Is A Must When Selling Your House
A clean house will help in selling your house.
2. Go crazy cleaning! Clean everything, all the messes you “forgot” to clean up in the garage, make sure your lawn and or garden is kempt if applicable. Hedge the bushes, water the flowers, pull weeds, check for any possible infestations of wasps/bees and/or rodents on the property. Steam the carpets, possibly replace them if needed! Replace lightbulbs (no one wants to see a dingy looking house), check for mold anywhere, clean the stove, check light fixtures, anywhere any sort of deficiency could be found! Remember, as the saying goes – first impressions are everything, so if you have a prospective buyer, give them something to remember. Also, if you have pets you may want to consider keeping them in a different area (possibly your new home) during the sales process, as they can easily ruin hours of cleaning in just a minute, and who can afford that kind of time?
A fresh coat will do wonders when Selling Your House
A fresh coat of paint will help in selling your house.
3. Paint! A fresh new coat of paint can do wonders for a home, and people’s perceptions of it. Stay sure you use only neutral colors here, as “strong” colors can drive certain types of people away. White is fresh and looks like a brand new house, but a nice shade of beige works also. Possibly a gentle blue for the kitchen, and yellow for the bathroom.
