Home Selling and What's Important to Know!
BEFORE YOUR HOME IS LISTED
It’s important to have your home in good showing condition before buyers start going through it. Here are some steps to take:
• Touch up interior and exterior paint as needed.
Install new carpeting and flooring if it appears worn or dated.
Make sure the front is clean and spruced up – curb appeal will create a favorable first impression. Trim bushes and plants as needed.
Keep the interior clean. Remove any clutter and odors from the home. Eliminate evidence of pets.
Minimize personal items such as family photos. You want buyers to see your house as their HOME.
Consider putting excess furniture and belongings in storage. Now’s the time to clean out the garage and basement and sell, give away or throw away items you don’t need anymore.
Consider having a pre-listing inspection performed. Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors; here’s your chance to address problems in advance.
