Selling Process | Selling Your Home | Home Buyer Process
In preparing your home for the market, you want to spend as little money as possible. Enhancements and repairs are best.
Buyers will be impressed by the new roof, but they aren't going to give you enough extra money to pay for it. There is a difference between making minor and inexpensive **polishes ** and **touch-ups** to your house, such as new cabinet knobs, and fresh coat of neutral paint.
As a REALTOR® , who is familiar will buyer's expectations in your neighborhood, we can advise you specifically on what improvements, if any need to be.
Maximizing the Appeal:
- Give every room in the house a through cleaning, as well as removing home of clutter.
- Remove less frequently used items, less is more, making it more inviting.-Since you are anticipating moving anyhow, plan a garage sale.
- Clean carpets, if necessary paint dingy, soiled, or strong colored walls a neutral shade of paint.
- Check for cracks, leaks and signs of dampness in the attic or basement.
- Repair cracks, holes and damage in plaster, wallboard, paint or tiles.
- Repair broken or cracked windows, molding or other wood work.
- Resealing shower stalls, bathtubs and windows.
- Replace batteries in smoke or carbon monoxide detectors.
- Fix dripping faucets and shower heads.
- Bring showy towels in for the bathrooms, brought out for the buyer's.
- May we suggest a complementary color to the bathroom or brand new white towels and with fresh soap bars in a large vase.
Kitchen sprucing up, new curtains, bowl of fruit out, flowers or candles, on the table. Make sure dishes are done, remove as much from counters as possible, this makes counters look bigger.
