It is careful planning and knowing just how to professionally spruce up the home which will send the home buyers scurrying for the cheque books.Before the 1st prospective buyer walks through the door, you should consider some smart options for casting your house in its’ best light. Here are some tips on how to get your home ready to sell;
1. Make Minor Repairs
Not all repairs costs a bundle. You should consider fixing as many small/minor problems as you can. The problems might seem trivial to you, but they will give the prospective buyers the impression that your house is not well maintained. Many buyers simply want to move into their new house without having to make a lot of changes. By doing the repairs, you will make your house more presentable. Some of the minor repairs you can do include, but not limited to;
-Replacing cracked floors or/and the counter tiles.
-Patching holes in walls.
-Fixing leaky faucets.
-Fixing doors which do not close/open properly, and the kitchen drawers which jam.
-Replacing burned out light bulbs.
-Replacing any worn bedspread, among others
2. Clear the Clutter
You should clear the kitchen counters of almost about everything. Clean the closets by packing up little used items such as old toys and out of season clothes. You should consider installing closet organisers so as to maximize the space. Consider putting at least 1/3rd of the furniture in a storage unit, especially the larger pieces, like the Big TVs, and entertainment centre.
Pack up the family photos and the wall hangings so as to depersonalise your house. You can store the items which you have packed in boxes, neatly arranged in the basement or garage. When clearing the clutter, consider this; if you haven’t used it in more than a year, you probably do not need it. if you do not need it, it’s better to donate it or throw it away.
3. Have Your Home Thoroughly Cleaned
