Getting your home ready for sale

Here are a few simple things that you can do to ready your home for sale.

A dirty, cluttered space is an instant turn off for buyers. Before putting your home on the market, make sure everything shines. Wash the walls, clean the windows, scrub the floors, and pay special attention to bathrooms and kitchens. Although it might be a lot of work, it will pay off in the offers you get from potential buyers.


Some spaces need more than a little cleaning—they need a coat of paint. With only a small investment, you could completely change the look of your home's interior. A fresh coat of neutral paint will impress buyers and net you higher profits.

Move the Furniture
Move the furniture so that it suits the room and not you. When selling your home, your comfort is no longer important. What is important is that the spaces look as big as possible. Sometimes this means putting some of your furniture in a storage unit.

Show Off Your Storage Space
Buyers love to look inside closets to see how much room they will have for their stuff. Make sure that they can find what they're looking for by emptying the closets as much as possible. This will make them look bigger and more impressive.  Put your off season clothes in storage to make your closets look bigger.

Pay Attention to Curb Appeal
Buyers will begin making judgments about the home as soon as they pull up. This is why it is essential to make sure your home has the type of curb appeal that will make a good impression. You can improve on curb appeal by making sure the porch and walkway is clean and neat. Nice landscaping, appropriate lighting, and fresh paint on the front door all enhance your home’s curb appeal.
