Have you decided to sell your home? What is it worth? You will want to work with a real estate agent that will help you draw up a “competitive market analysis” the realtor will recommend a specific sale price.
1st you need to really look at your home start at the curb side this is called a curb appeal. If a buyer drives by and doesn’t like the look of the out side of your home there’s a good chance he will not make an appointment to see the inside remember the out side will make the first impression so you need to make your home standout from the rest. This might mean that you might have to spend a little time and money to prepare your home but its while worth it. Start with the front of the home cut the hedges and mow the lawn plant a few flowers give it some color. Look at the paint does it need some touch up or maybe you need to paint the house, repair any hinges, doors, windows now let’s go inside the home.
De-clutter before any painting if needed is done you need to start first de-cluttering the house and you need to have everyone help get rid of the clutter you have collected over the years. Clutter homes look messy and dirty even if it’s not the less the better clutter will kill a sale every time so it’s very important to de clutter, clean and get organized. Keep in mind a well organized home promotes comfort and creates more space. Plus it will make the move easier when it’s time to pack and move so your one steps ahead. Now that you have space look at the inside of the house same as the out side do any small repairs or paint.
De-personalize your home remove any personal items from the wall pictures religious or politics items this give the buyer a chance to look and feel the home more there’s than yours.
One last tip when your realtor takes photos ask to see them first look for photos that show warmth of the house. These photos will be on the web or adds to sell your home so you want to pick clear pictures and good views of the house.
Follow the above steps and you might save your self some headaches when selling your home.
