Following are some simple ways to help guarantee top market value for your property. It helps to think about your property as if you were a potential buyer. The first impression, what is often called "curb appeal", can be the definitive moment in selling your home. You want potential buyers to be excited from the beginning. Hiring a home organizer or stager can often mean thousands of dollars in additional profits. Here are three things to keep in mind:
The first impression a potential buyer will have of your property will be the exterior. Keep the front of your home neat. Consider replacing the doormat, painting the front door, trimming and weeding the lawn, and touching up worn paint. The goal is to make yours the nicest house on the street.
Light enhances the look of any room. Remove excess furniture and wall hangings, clean windows inside and out, cut back tree limbs and shrubbery. If the interior requires repainting, choose light, neutral colors. Keep the house clear of clutter and pet-free.
The two rooms that will do the most to sell your house will be the kitchen and bathroom. Make sure they are in prime condition. This includes regrouting tile, scrubing tubs and showers, replacing old fixtures and appliances, hanging decorative towels, and adding flowers or potpourri to freshen the air. Also remember, it is in your best interest to leave during showings. Potential buyers are more confortable working directly with a professional agent.
