What Can You Do to Prepare Your Home for Sale?
Today we’re going to discuss six ways to get your home ready for sale this spring:
1. Let natural light in. Open up your blinds, windows, and let that natural sunlight in.
2. Renovate what’s outdated. If your kitchen or bathroom is stuck in the 1980s, it’s time to freshen it up a bit to get top dollar for your home. Updated faucets, towel racks, and cabinets are things you can do even if you’re on a tight budget.
3. Think small with renovations. Don’t overdo it with expensive renovations. Instead of replacing all of your cabinets, just paint or replace the doors. If you’re going to spend money, spend it on curb appeal.
4. Paint with whites and neutrals. A fresh coat of paint is relatively inexpensive and an easy way to give your house a facelift. Keep the colors neutral so that buyers can better imagine the home as their own.
5. Fix anything that’s broken. Repairs can take some time, but getting them out of the way allows you to sell your home much faster.
6. Pay attention to odors. The smells inside your home can kill a home sale, and you may not even notice a lot of them. If you have pets, smoke, or regularly cook fragrant foods, consider getting your carpets freshly cleaned and adding a fresh coat of paint.
