Q: How Do You Prepare Your Home For Sale?
These four home preparation tips will help maximize your sale.
If you’re preparing to put your home on the market, here are four tips that will help you get a great return on your investment:
1. Let in a lot of natural light during showings. Remove the sun shades, clean the windows, and let in as much sunlight as possible. First impressions are everything, and you don’t want your home to feel dark and depressing when buyers first see it. Additionally, you want them to be able to appreciate the view your home offers.
If you can make your home look like a model home, it will sell quickly and for top dollar.
2. Add neutral paint. This tip is sure to boost your return on investment because it will bring more online buyers to your doorstep and make your home feel more inviting. If your home has a gray color palette, greige is a great color to consider. Sand dollar (the color behind me in the video) also works well in homes that feature Tuscan and oak colors. If you want to play it safe, you could always go with plain white, which will make the home look new and absorb natural light.
3. Stage your home. If you can make your home look like a model home, it will sell quickly and for top dollar. On that note, having a professional stager come to your home and give you a consultation is well worth the cost.
4. Have the home professionally cleaned and the property professionally landscaped. Both of these should be done before taking any listing photos. This ensures that the exterior maintains good curb appeal and the interior indicates pride of ownership.
