First impressions are very important, especially when it comes to selling your home. What's the first thing you see when you look at a property? The curb appeal. Here are some helpful tips to prepare your home inside and out and have your listing stand out.
Fresh Coat of Paint - It doesn't have to be the whole house, you can paint the front door, shutters and trim, it will brighten up the exterior.
Update Your Finishing - Replace your house numbers, door knob and mailbox.
Lighten Up - Exterior lights will make your home feel welcoming to prospective buyers.
Landscaping - Having a well manicured lawn and garden will really help with curb appeal.
Declutter - Potential buyers may think there isn't enough space in the home. When you walk into a vacant home it's hard to visualize living there and it's the same for an overly cluttered home.
Staging - Having a professional stager come by and help you reorganize or remove your current furniture will help assist with the sale of your home.
Repair - Fix up any markings/cracks on the walls, clean stained carpets, replace burnt out light bulbs and complete any minor projects. It’s a good idea to have your real estate agent walk through your home and offer constructive criticism before you put your home on the market.
Turn On The Lights – During any Showing, Open House, or Office/MLS Tour turn on all the lights. If you have a fireplace, turn it on as well. The more lite up the home is the more inviting it is.
