If you’ve made up your mind in selling your home, you need to carefully plan and know how to professionally prepare it in such a way that potential buyers will find it irresistible!
Here are simple yet proven ways to help your home sell for top dollar.
Preparing your home to sell can be a significant investment
Home sellers like yourself usually make the mistake of underestimating the amount of money needed for renovations. They do not realize that home renovations can be costly. Take note that you can increase your return to 25% for any improvement done to your home as long as it is well-spent and properly thought through.
1. Check your landscape and clean up your exterior
It’s a given fact that the homes in Buchanan Estate in Clovis, CA are in prime locations. The backyards and lawns of every home are clean and manicured. Even so, you still need to make sure that you polish this part of your house to the brim.
Make sure that the grass in the garden is green. Pick out weeds and remove dried leaves. Planting flowers will also be an asset once you start scheduled showings. You can also shape your plants so your lawn appears to be well-maintained and posh. I know you have heard this a million times – increase your curb appeal!
2. Upgrade your bathroom and kitchen
It’s understandable if you don’t have enough time to renovate your kitchen or give it a total overhaul. However, you can allot some time to install countertops, replace hardware, and upgrade the appliances. Certainly, updating these things can be daunting. Since most kitchen and bathroom appliances are stainless steel, they can be pricey. However, if done right, they can bring a significant return on investment.
When upgrading, you do not need to replace everything. If your kitchen appliances are still working, you can clean them to make them look fresh and new. However, if your furniture or appliance already shows signs of prolonged use, then you have to replace them.
You can go to thrift stores for appliances that are affordable. Make sure to have them tested in the store before you buy them to save you time and effort. Also, choose an appliance that has easy to understand controls. Complicated menus and controls can put off some buyers, especially if your target market is adults and retirees.
3. Never underestimate the power of staging
Remove personal photos, a plaque of achievements or any personal items that are still on display. Remove religious or political items on display that can make your potential buyers feel uncomfortable. In other words, de-personalize as much as you can.
Remove unnecessary furniture. Rearrange your furniture in a way that makes your house spacious. Do not place any furniture that will block your windows and doors.
When staging, it is important that you think of a theme and apply it in your entire space. Stick to neutral colors. You may use bold, solid colors only when you are entirely sure of it.
4. Make minor repairs
If it’s a seller’s market, you can sell your home in its present condition without expecting to receive meticulous remarks from buyers. However, in a regular market, repairs can certainly help the outcome of your sale.
A few repairs you can easily do
- Make sure that all bulbs are brand new.
- Replace leaky faucets and showerheads.
- Polish your door hinges. Replace if necessary.
- Paint your walls with neutral colors (try something new like sage green or bittersweet chocolate).
- No holes in the walls, please!
- Pay attention to your carpet. Neutral carpeting is always your best bet.
- Replace chipped or cracked bathroom or kitchen tiles.
- Get rid of dated wallpapers.
- Say goodbye to your textured ceilings.
- Replace your doorknobs.
Think of what buyers will see
Your potential buyers are serious in looking for a new home where they can move in right away. Any visible deferred maintenance, unreliable plumbing, etc give off a negative impression. These can cause potential buyers to look somewhere else.
Time to let go
Make your house welcoming and disassociate yourself by thinking it is no longer your property. Ask yourself, if you were to buy a house, would you buy this?
Envision yourself handling the keys over to the new owners! You are now into the new chapter of your life. Look toward the future and the new adventures that await you!
