If you’re selling your home, you’ll want to look at it through the “buyers’ eyes.” Ask yourself, "What would I like to see or not see if I were touring this house as a potential home buyer?" With a limited budget and some effort, you can maximize the selling potential of your home.
Chipped paint, dirty walls, windows and doors, unfinished remodeling projects and cluttered closets are all things that should be addressed prior to listing your home for sale. Look for ways to wow buyers the minute they walk into your home.
Home Exterior: Curb Appeal
DECLUTTER: Remove toys, equipment, and clutter from the yard. What is the buyer’s first impression?
ROOF: Repair/replace damaged shingles.
DOOR KNOBS & LOCKS: replace worn down knobs or replace mismatched locks.
WINDOWS: Wash & fix broken windows, shutters, and torn screens. Seal window frames with quality caulking.
GUTTERS: Clean/repair gutters and exterior HVAC units.
FRONT DOOR: Clean or paint the front door and mailbox. Check for cobwebs around light fixture.
POWER WASH: Remove mildew, moss, and stains from the side of your house. For more stubborn stains on the driveway or walkway, try a concrete cleaner.
GARAGE: Wash floor, garbage can, organize shelves.
YARD: Mow lawn, trim bushes and shrubs, weed garden, and add potted plants for color. Simple and clean, no heavy maintenance.
CLEAN SWEEP: Sweep walkway and driveway. Rake leaves in the fall. Shovel snow in the winter.
Home Interior: Refresh
MINIMIZE: Remove, sell, or donate: clothing, toys, furniture, unused appliances, books, games, etc.
DEPERSONALIZE: Remove pictures or decorations. Can a buyer see “themselves” in the home, not “you.”
