Spacious living room with floor panels, sofa and armchair
You are ready to sell your house and move on to a new one. While preparing your house so it can be shown to potential buyers can be a daunting task, the care you put into it will get the price you ask for. Here are some tips to get your home ready.
Clean Every Room
Take a day or two to make sure the entire place is clean. Deep scrub the mildew from the fiberglass roll in shower. Vacuum then shampoo the carpets and mop the hard surface floors. Doing this will make your house look attractive for those looking at it as well as giving it a pleasant smell.
Paint the Walls
Applying a new coat of paint to the walls will cover any nicks and blemishes that might be on the surface. Choosing a neutral color will give the potential buyer the incentive to choose your place since it will be move in ready for them. When the walls are dry, leave the items that hung there off. This gives those visiting a chance to see the home the way it would be if it were theirs instead of yours.
Spruce Up the Curb Appeal
The first thing buyers will see when they arrive at your property will be the outside. Trim your lawn and shrubbery and pull any weeds there may be in the landscaping. Spray down the outside to remove any dirt that might be caked on the siding. You might also consider painting the exterior and the shutters if it is necessary. Repair cracked sidewalks or the driveway especially if it could be a tripping hazard. Stain or paint any fencing that might be weathered so that it looks attractive to anyone passing by. If you are selling your home in the winter, be sure to shovel all the walks so that your guests can walk safely.
