 Find Out Here!

The condition and appearance of your Home can significantly affect the selling price you will ultimately receive.  Putting your Home on the market without analyzing what needs to be done to make it look it's best is no longer an option.  Mainly, due to syndicated Real Estate websites which will showcase your Home to prospectice buyers.  Today's consumers are tech savy and will judge your home on those first photos and videos.   

Listing Preparation

What is Your Home worth? How do you prepare your home to sell?

 

We are experts at helping you determine exactly what needs to be done.  We transform clutter filled homes with misplaced furniture into beautiful listings that show incredibly well.  At times we may suggest replacing appliances or counter-tops to increase the value since the incremental cost of updating will be recovered in a quicker sale at an increase sale price.

 

First, make sure your Home's exterior is in good condition!  Prospective buyers won't even walk in the door if your Home does not have curb appeal.  You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but prospective buyers do it all the time.  

 

Front Entry

  • Check your front door to see if it needs cleaning or painting
  • Polish door fixtures and clean glass
  • Purchase a new welcome mat

Exterior

  • Pressure wash & clean exterior walls, roof top, driveway & patio
  • Clean windows
  • Paint the outside of your Home if needed

Landscape

  • Make sure your lawn is in good shape
  • Repair/maintain your irrigation system
  • Plant fresh flowers & shrubs
  • Install fresh mulch

 

Next...go for the spacious look and declutter.  Remember, your Home is on display.  One of the best and least expensive ways to improve the appearance and feel of your Home is to clear out your closets and rooms as much as possible.  Your Home will actually look much larger and spacious when it's clean and free of clutter.

 

Organize

  • Clean out and organize all closets
  • Clean out and organize all cabinets and drawers
  • Clear all clutter from counter-tops and tables
  • Remove all papers and unnecessary items
  • Remove all magnets and pictures from your refrigerator
  • Reorganize and clean out your garage

 

Kitchens

  • Store infrequently used appliances
  • Remove as much as possible from counter-tops
  • Remove all magnets, photos and misc. hanging items from refrigerator and bulletin boards

 

Closets and Storage

 

One of the most frequently voiced requirements of buyers is for more closet and storage space.  Open up your storage by removing items you aren't using.  If it looks like you don't have enough storage space, a buyer will think so also.  

 

Garage

 

Buyers will pay a premium for a garage if they can visualize it being of value to them, but it's hard to sell when the garage is filled and overflowing with stuff.  If your garage has become a two car attic...move it to a storage unit.

 

Finally...Clean Up!

 

You want your Home to smell fresh and sparkle.  Whether you hire a cleaning service or do it yourself, it's impotant to do this job prior to and during the home selling process.  

  • Refinish if necessary or clean and polish all floors
  • Steam clean carpet or replace if necessary
  • Wash all baseboards
  • Dust everywhere!
  • Touch up paint
  • Clean all soap residue from showers and bath tubs
  • Replace old shower curtains
  • Repair soiled or missing tile/grout
  • Clean toilets, sinks and mirrors
  • Make sure all appliance and light fixtures are in working order
  • Clean your stove inside and out
  • Make sure your refrigerator is clean and organized
  • Clean and organize the inside of all cabinets and pantry
  • Clean all windows and blinds

 

A properly prepared home will ensure you achieve a quicker sale at an increased sale price.
