Get Your Home Ready To Sell:

Here are some important tips that will help eliminate stress and get your home sold fast and for the most amount of money:

l Edge, mow and fertilize the lawn. Reseed sparse areas.

l Trim hedges, weed lawns and flowerbeds, and prune trees. Cut back overgrown shrubbery.

l Reseal cracks in foundation, steps, walkways, walls and patios. Power-wash the exterior.

l Clean and align gutters and downspouts; clean the chimney.

l Remove oil stains from driveway and garage. Keep walks and driveway swept.

l Hire a cleaning service to thoroughly clean the interior, to include windows.

l Paint the walls and ceilings neutral colors. Buyer like move-in ready homes!

l Replace damaged windowpanes, moldings and woodwork.

l Repair drippy faucets and showerheads. Unclog slow drains.

l Clean out the fireplace and lay some logs in it.

l Mend torn screens. Clean out all window tracks.

l Replace burned-out light bulbs. Use brighter light bulbs. The idea is to make the rooms as light as possible.

l Clean all appliances (especially refrigerator and oven).

l Replace old toilet seats and shower curtains.

l Clear all cobwebs from corners and doorways.

l Wash all light switches, handrails and doorknobs.

Basically, imagine yourself looking at your home to purchase... Remember the things you loved about the home when you bought it, and showcase those things! Chances are the next buyer will love the same things! 

ALWAYS remember to call your Realtor with any questions of what to do or not to do, as we know what will matter and what will not! Don't spend that money before consulting with a professional!
