Preparing to Sell Your Home in 5 Easy Steps

You've decided it's the right time to sell your house.  But where do you start?  Here are some handy guidelines to make the decision and transition easier.


1.  De Clutter

Go through all of your unused items, or still boxed items and sell/give away what you no longer need.  Moving is a great way to purge and clean out all of the extra items you've accumulated along the way.


2.  Tidy and Re-organize your Closets

Potential buyers DO open up closets.  A neat and organized closet will show case how much room there is for storage!


3.  Make minor repairs

Now is a good time to fix all of the little things that need fixing.  From a leaky faucet to holes in the drywall.  You'll want to have these done before you list your house for sale.


4.  Update your decor

You may wish to repaint some of your rooms or hallways that have more wear and tear.  Perhaps removing wallpaper, re-caulking around sinks and tubs.  A great time to have any carpets cleaned as well.  Update old light fixtures.  All of these updates will make your home look newer and cleaner.


5.  Create some Curb Appeal.

The front and back yards of your home make an important impression.  You should make sure that the gardens are neat, perhaps touch up your front door with paint, shutters, garage doors.  Replace any light fixtures.


These 5 tips are a great place to start when considering selling your home.
