Thinking of selling your house this year?

Here are a few Pointer’s that are essential to get the best price for your home:

  • Crank up the curb appeal
    Pull weeds, rake leaves and trim overgrown shrubs, especially if they block windows or the path to your front door.
  • Paint
    It's important to make your house generic. A fresh coat of neutral paint will make your home appear larger,
    brighter and more appealing to potential buyers.
  • Make repairs
    Fix things like leaky faucets and sticky cabinets, and replace old screens.
  • Rearrange
    Make sure your furniture placement allows for easy traffic flow and shows the purpose of each room.
    If you have too much furniture, rent a portable storage device to hold things until you are ready to move
     into your new place. If you don't have enough furniture, borrow or rent.
  • Depersonalize/Declutter
    This includes personal photos and portraits. Less is always more. The less clutter and knickknacks you
    have lying around, the more potential buyers will be able to see your home and what it offers.
    Remember, you are selling your house, not your stuff. 
  • Closets:
    Organize closets to show off storage space. \Buyers are looking for storage space, so they will look inside
    your closets. Clear out excess items, and organize the shelves to show off how much storage you really have.
  • Organize
    When your house is meticulously organized, buyers will envision themselves living a stress-free life in your home.
  • Clean
    Clean every inch of your house, and don't forget to make your windows and floors sparkle. If your
    carpet appears old and stained, think about replacing it. Also, make sure there are no offensive odors.
    Purchase an air-neutralizing spray that will help remove odors without creating an overwhelming
    masking odor. Clean homes sell!
  • Lighten up
    Let the sun shine in, open all blinds or curtains, and make sure the house is well lit.
You have 10 seconds to make a first impression, so make it count!
