So you’re thinking, “I want to sell my home … what should I do next?” We are here to answer that question! There is a laundry list of things you should do before putting your home on the market and starting to show it. Read below to see a list of repairs needed before you start the home selling process!
Furniture & Junk Removal
One of the first things you should do is remove any old furniture or junk that may be taking up unnecessary space in your home. Just because you love that old stinky chair, others might not! When you get rid of clutter, your space will be more open and more desirable to buyers. This will also benefit you because it will reduce the number of objects you have to move after you close.
Get ready to get on your knees and scrub! One of the main reasons deep cleaning your home is important (besides the visible cleanliness) is that you’ll get rid of some odors. Now, you may be thinking, but what if my house doesn’t smell? Trust us, it does. Many homes tend to have odors, not necessarily bad ones, but since you live there, you could never notice them. Have a friend over who hasn’t been there in a while, and they will tell you!
Let’s say that your home is in pretty good shape and no major replacements have to be made. In that case, all you need to do is some touch ups and light painting! If you happen to have dirty walls or walls that are a very bold color, we suggest painting them a white or cream color. That will make your rooms seem bigger and be more appealing to potential buyers. Also, if you have any scratches or stains on any other surface, make sure to get rid of them! Basically, get rid of any eyesores that you think will turn off buyers!
The Big 3
HVAC, Foundation and Roof! We are calling these “The Big 3” because they are the things that could make or break the “sell-ability” of your home. Make sure to get an inspector and have him do a proper inspection of your home! If your house is all good with The Big 3, then you are already more than halfway there! If any of those items need to be repaired, get on it quickly!
