Prepping Your property to Sell
We have made an outline for you to guide you through the selling process. It can be a bit intimidating, but let’s take this one step at a time. Simple home improvements can greatly increase your chances of selling your property fast, and at the right price.
SEPARATE YOURSELF FROM YOUR SPACE
Though you may have amazing taste, not everyone will have the same taste as you. It is important to disassociate yourself and your personal taste from your property. This creates a “blank canvas”, allowing prospective buyers to picture themselves in your property with their own personal touches.
No one likes a messy home! Viewing a property in a state of chaos not only takes away from its potential, but makes the potential buyer believe it is unclean.
RE-ARRANGE THE LAYOUT
The layout of your property might be ideal for you, but that is not to say you are maximizing your space! Rearranging closets and cabinets can not only open up the space and make it appear bigger, but it can also create less clutter and mess.
RENT STORAGE UNITS
This is essential. Renting storage units to store all your excessive items can greatly improve your chances of selling your property. That old wine cabinet that your grandmother gave you might have sentimental value, but to a potential buyer it is just distracting and taking up unnecessary space.
MAKE MINOR REPAIRS
Making minor repairs to your home and putting those final finishes will give a newer and well-kept appearance to your property. This gives the illusion that your property is new and is not in need of any repairs. Everyone’s favorite phrase is “Move in ready!”, when trying to buy a new property. This is what you should be striving for.
CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN!
This should not be taken lightly. Make every countertop, floor, stairwell, and wall sparkly! Who wants to move into a dirty home? No one.
CHECK YOUR CURB APPEAL
You might be wondering “why is curb appeal important?” Well, here is why: Studies show that a majority of buyers will not get out of their car or even enter a property if they do not appreciate the aesthetic value of its exterior. Enhancing your curb appeal attracts more buyers. Plain and simple.
