Here are a few quick tips that will help you prepare your home for the market.
Though the coronavirus has most of us staying indoors, you can still prep your home for the market so that it sells quickly and for top dollar. There are just a few tips to keep in mind.
One of the best and least expensive things you can do is declutter. Clear items off of the shelves and pick up everything off the floor and store them in your closest. This will make it easy for buyers and their agents to walk through it.
Next, make sure each room serves its purpose. If you have a living room or formal dining room, for example, make sure they’re set up accordingly. Give buyers and their agents a feel of where everything should go in the home if there’s furniture in it.
“As long as it’s within your budget and makes sense, go for it.”
After that, it’s time to paint, which is another inexpensive task that will bring you a high return. It not only gives your home that new-car smell, but it also hides any glaring imperfections. If you’re not sure which color to go with, ask your agent about the most popular trends in your area.
Also, focus on flooring. This almost goes hand in hand with painting, and it’s especially important if you live in an older home, whether that means replacing the carpet or installing a laminate or hardwood floor. As long as it’s within your budget and makes sense, go for it.
Lastly, amp up your curb appeal. Doing any minor landscaping or just clearing out the landscaping you do have will give a great first impression as buyers pull up to your house.
