Top 3 Tips to Get Your Home Sale Ready
Are you thinking about selling your home? You might want to sell for numerous reasons including downsizing or moving out of the area.
There are lots of preparations to do before you put your home on the market.
You have to ensure your home looks the best it has ever looked if you want to get a quick sale at a good price.
Let’s take a look at three things you should do as a priority when you want to sell your house.
First and foremost you need to declutter. Nobody wants to look around a busy cluttered house. When you open your house up to potential buyers, they won’t want to come in and see your belongings laying everywhere.
They need to be able to envision their own stuff in the house.
The best way to declutter is to go room to room and sort your belongings into three piles. The piles should consist of keep, throw away, and sell.
You will be surprised by how many items you have and how many you have but don’t actually need.
You can create a huge pile of items to sell, this is great as house moves can be pricey so hold a yard sale or garage sale and get the dollar bills rolling in.
Once you have organized your house and spent time decluttering you should do a thorough deep clean of the property.
Over the years dust and debris will build up. This can be missed in the usual weekly cleaning session. You need to remove all the dust and pet hair from the house.
When you list your house on the market it needs to be spotless. That way, it shows off the house’s best features and qualities.
Places that you need to pay close attention to are the kitchen and bathroom. It is a must to make sure there is no black mold around the bathtub.
Another thing that often gets forgotten is extractor fans and oven hoods. These should be cleaned and wiped down thoroughly.
If you don’t want to do the cleaning yourself you can of course hire a cleaning company to do it for you.
They will know what needs to be done and provide a top-class professional job. Leaving your home sparkling ready for the photographer to come and take pictures for the listing.
The outside of your property is probably the most important as this is the first thing buyers will look at.
How your property looks from the outside is known as curb appeal. It is vital you get it right for a quick and easy sale.
The best way to judge your house from the outside is to look at it yourself or get a family member or friend to take a look and give you their honest opinion.
