Preparing a Home for Sale

GET THE JOB DONE: CURB APPEAL

Preparing your house for sale entails making your home appear "move in ready" in order to attract the greatest numbers of potential buyers.  This is a critical element in your selling preparation. Creating curb appeal is no small feat but greatly worth it in the long run.  To get started, follow the tips below.

  • Inside your home, begin by removing personal effects such as photos and memorabilia.  While these are the items that make your home yours, your goal is to create an environment that a potential buyer can envision as their own.
  • Clean everything inside and outside of your home and develop a plan to keep your house attractive during the sales process.  To help present the cleanest and brightest home, open the curtains and turn on the lights during open houses and when real estate agents are conducting showings.
  • Consider enhancing rooms with a fresh coat of paint and be sure to repair items that need attention.  While major remodels may not be necessary, broken items should be repaired. 
  • Outside, consistently maintain a mowed lawn and consider planting seasonal flowers.  Also, trim hedges, trees and bushes.
