QUICK TIP TUESDAY #17

Before you sell your property there are a few things you should do before it hits the market.  By putting in some work ahead of time you could sell your house in less time for more money.

~ Talk to your lender to confirm payout penalties

~ CALL ME

~ Find out what you can afford to buy after you sell.  We are in a Sellers market now, which means you will sell higher but then you will also buy a little higher too. It's all relevant.

 

DE-CLUTTER & DEPERSONALIZE

~ Pack up what you don't use everyday

~ Clear all countertops off, make them all clear of clutter

~ Organize closets, cabinets and storage areas

~ Organize garage, stack boxes nicely in one area

 

DEEP CLEAN EVERYTHING!

~ Windows

~ Bathrooms

~ Walls

~ Kitchen (Cupboards, fridge, stove)

~ Clean Grout where needed

~ Bedrooms

~ Carpets

 

MAKE REPAIRS AND UPDATES

~ Interior should be painted w/ neutral colors

~ Consider updating fixtures & lighting...make certain there are no burnt out bulbs

~ Don't forget the Exterior; there is no 2nd chance for a first impression

~ Mow the lawn

~ Plant bright flowers and weed flower beds

~ Add fresh mulch

~ Paint exterior doors and trim

~ Clean windows

 

SHOWINGS

~ Always be prepared for showings, sometimes they happen with little notice.

~ Keep your property clean and tidy, just like a showhome, make sure there are no offensive odors

~ Make arrangements for pets to be out of the home during showings

~ Open the blinds and turn on all lights

~ Make plans to be out of the house for at least 1 hour.
