Are You Thinking of Selling Your Home?

If you’re thinking of selling your home, consider these simple, inexpensive tips for increasing your home’s appeal and selling for the highest price possible.

Declutter for a Clean and Spacious Look

Decluttering is one of the best things you can do to make your home more appealing. Remove extra furniture to make rooms look larger, and clear off kitchen counters, tables, bedroom furniture, and bathroom vanities. To make your closets look more spacious, go through each one, remove items you no longer need, and take everything off the floors.

Don’t forget your walls when decluttering. Are they filled with an overabundance of artwork or photos? This can distract buyers, making it hard for them to evaluate your home and picture their own belongings in it.

Organize Your Garage and Basement

Pay attention to your garage and basement as well. Clean out unneeded items, and organize the rest on shelves along the walls. If you have considerable belongings, you may want to put some of them in storage while your home is on the market.

Quick Improvements that Pay Off

New paint is one of the best ways to transform your home, giving it a more updated look and feel. Use a light, neutral paint in any rooms that haven’t been painted recently. Almost as important as painting is replacing worn or stained carpeting and refinishing wood floors in poor condition. Stay with a neutral carpet color that will go with a variety of furniture. Buyers love fresh paint and new carpet, and in some prices ranges, they may expect it.

Finally, don’t forget about your backyard. Before listing, take care of any work needed on your lawn, deck, patio, or fencing.

Increasing your home’s appeal with decluttering, repairs, and inexpensive updates is well worth it. Simple improvements can really pay off with a quicker sale and higher price!
