Selling Your Home This Fall? Here is How to prepare!

When listing your home, your main goal is to sell for the best price possible. There are many small steps you can take to get the best deal!

Tips to improve your home's curb appeal

  • Freshen up your entry way with a new door or a new coat of paint

  • Landscape your yard! Your well groomed lawn will show the buyers how well your home was taken care of.

  • Check all of our exterior lights and replace lights that are not working.

  • Wash the windows, both inside and outside.

  • Clean out your garage

  • Plant flowers to add some color

  • Pick out a new welcome mat to welcome buyers as they tour your home

  • Paint or replace the street numbers on your home

  • Power wash outdoor surfaces such as your sidewalks and drive way

Tips to make your house feel like a home to potential buyers

  • Clean your home. A clean home will allow buyers to picture themselves in the space without a mess distracting them.

  • Give each room a purpose, even a bonus room.

  • Let light in. Bright rooms help your home feel warm and inviting.

  • Fix anything that is broken. Buyers will notice and may offer less for your home if repairs are required.

  • Unclutter your home! Thinning out your closets and cabinets will show buyers how much space there really is.

  • Get fresh paint and new carpeting. These are the top two things you can do to help your home sell quicker and for a better deal.

  • Organize your kitchen. Store any small appliances or clutter to show off counter space.

  • When showing your home, empty all the trash and hide dirty laundry.

  • Fix any squeaky doors.

  • Replace old light bulbs and make sure each switch works.
