Your home is typically your biggest asset. Taking the time to get your home ready to show its best will pay off in the end. Here is how to maximize the selling price.
- Declutter, deep clean and depersonalize. Less is more when selling. It helps your home feel more spacious when things are boxed up and out of the way. Take down family photos and personal items. Thinning out closets shows off storage space. Dirty homes do not show well.
- Ensure light bulbs are all working, and replace as needed. The more light you have in your home, the lighter and brighter it will feel. When weather allows, having the windows professionally cleaned inside and out will let more sunshine in.
- Focus on curb appeal. A wreath, doormat and flowerpot can make the home feel welcoming right from the start. In sunny seasons, keep the lawn mowed and watered. In snowy seasons, keep the sidewalks shoveled.
- Do small cosmetic improvements as suggested. We walk through client’s homes before listing to point out suggested adjustments before listing the home. Each situation and price range of home is different, but common items are paint touch-ups and carpet cleaning.
