Top 10 Things To Know Before You Sell

Selling your home? Before you list, consider these top 10 things to do before you put your home on the market.  Some are no-brainers, but they are all worth your attention if you plan on selling your home.

1. Make a great first impression

Did you know that buyers decide in the first 30 seconds of seeing the home if this is the one? It’s true. Good curb appeal is a must.

2. Clean, Clean, Clean

No-brainer, right?

3. Declutter

Knick-knacks + Tschockes + Collectibles = Clutter! Declutter, Now!

4. Store it

If a room is open, it looks large and adds square footage to the home; this is $$$ in the real estate market.

5. Let there be light

Open the curtains and let the sunshine in! You may like your privacy, but the buyer doesn’t want to think about that when looking at a home.

6. Neutral background

Neutral walls (not just white) that are clean and have an up-to-date color makes a huge impression.  Bright colors on walls can be a turnoff for some.

7. Set the stage

You know that dining room that goes unused most of the time? Spiff it up.

8. Empty closets

Empty every closet as much as you can. Remove out-of-season clothes. You want it to look as though there is room for the buyers’ things.

9. Pet smarts

You love your dog. But not everyone loves pets! Ask me for things to consider when it comes to selling your home and your pets.

10. Make sure the Home smells good
