What Should I do Get My Home Ready For Sale
Making the decision to sell your home is a big one. Â You have Â to choose someone to market your home and get it listed. Â That is the easy part. Â Remember, just because you have chosen to list your home does not mean that it is ready to sell. Â You have to prepare your house for the sale.
There are some very easy and inexpensive things to do to make your home attractive to others. Â In order to do these, however, you have to remember that your taste is not necessarily the taste that others have. Â The first thing to do is to neurtralize your home. Â Paint those bright green, blue and pink rooms in a soft neutral tone. Â When buyers walk in and see those loud colors, their first thought is, "My bedspread won't match this color." Â Paint is very inexpensive and walking into a home with the smell of new paint is always attractive to a buyer.
Another thing that is a relatively inexpensive thing to do is to update light fixtures. Â Change out those swag lights for the lighting that is in today. Â Go to Home Depot or Menards and you can find relatively inexpensive lighting. Â Also, if your kitchen is older, change out the hardware on the drawers and cabinets to bring your home into this century. Â When a buyer walks in and sees everything outdated, the first thing they think about is how much it will cost them to update the house. Â To you, the house may seem updated, but to a buyer, it is completely outdated. Â
The biggest thing you can do to help sell your home, is to DECLUTTER. Â Get rid of all those pictures and posters and little collectibles. Â That is your taste; not necessarily that of the buyer coming to see your home. Â
These are just a few little details to help your home get ready for sale. Â
