Tips for Selling Your Home

Selling your home can feel like an overwhelming process. However, with the right support and guidance, there are ways to make navigating the selling process easier. Before you begin, here are a few tips to best position your home when it comes time to sell.

Curb Appeal

The exterior of your home is the first impression of your home so it is important to keep it neat and tidy. Keep your lawn cut and weeded, pathways clear, and front entrances clear of clutter. Prospective home buyers are often attracted to move-in-ready homes with little work.

Remove Personalization from Your Home

This can sometimes be hard on home sellers as personal effects like photos make a property feel like a home. Removing this can be emotional, especially if you have lived on the property for a long time. However, during the selling process, potential buyers want to envision their future in the property. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there.

Have Your Home Show-Ready

This isn’t always easy, especially for families with younger kids or pets. However, your home should be ready to be seen by a potential customer at any time. It is important to put items in storage and keep mess to a minimum. While mess is a part of life, it can impact a buyer’s impression of your home and the overall selling price.

Make Sure Your Home is Well-Lit

Remove any burnt-out light bulbs and make sure to turn all your lights on when a potential buyer walks through your property.

The All-Important Kitchen

Often viewed as the “heart of the home” the kitchen is one of the main rooms that impact a homebuyer’s perception of a potential home. Keep the kitchen tidy and free of clutter and dishes in the sink. If your kitchen is dated or cluttered, it would be advisable to complete minor updates such as replacing countertops, a quick paint job or updating faucets or hardware on cabinets. Highlight storage: One way to entice buyers is to highlight the available storage space in your home. A great tip for this would be to declutter closets, keeping them half empty to show potential buyers the prospect of keeping items tidy.
