If you have decided to sell your home, there are a few things to remember when preparing your home for buyers. Here are some ways to help your home make the best possible impression that will give you top dollar:
- Tidy up: Unnecessary items around your home only add clutter and prevent the buyer from seeing all the space your home offers. Take time to make sure your lawn is presentable, countertops are clear of appliances and papers, and drawers and closets are organized.
- Clean up: You want to make an impression that lets the buyer know that you take care of your home. Clean your home and don’t forget to wipe down sinks, windows, bathrooms, and countertops.
- Patch up: Although you may have only minor repairs that need attention throughout your home, it can be the difference in a buyer staying interested in your home or moving on. Repair any exterior features of your home, including doors, windows, and plants that need more sod or mulch. Repair any leaky faucets or broken appliances.
- Finishing touch: Add to the final look with a mildly scented candle, coordinating towels, a new doormat, or a flower arrangement.
