Acres Away Realty Selling Tips: Preparing Your Home For Sale
First Impression Is So Important
Curb appeal is vital. Your lawn should be trimmed, sidewalks swept, front door clean, doorbell working.
Painting For A Better Sale
A minor investment in paint will pay dividends in the form of a better price and/or a quicker sale.
Here Comes The Sun
Open the curtains and clean the windows so a prospect can see your home looking bright and cheerful. Dark, dreary rooms are not appealing.
Don’t Be A Drip
Fix leaky faucets. Dripping water suggests faulty plumbing and major repair bills. Discolored, rust-stained sinks are also warning signs-they should be clean and sparkling.
Little Things Mean A Lot
Loose doorknobs or cabinet pulls, sticking doors and drawers, wobbly hinges, stuck windows — these are negative factors. Check and repair all these minor flaws.
Keep stairways and corridors absolutely clear. Clutter is unattractive and can cause accidents.
Bathrooms Sell Homes
Make bathrooms sparkle. Clean sinks and toilets and repair any damaged or discolored caulking.
From Top To Bottom
Let prospects see the full value of your basement, attic, garage, and closets by removing junk and cartons. Rent a short term storage space if necessary.
