Preparing Your Home For Sale
Here are a few handy tips to help prepare your home for sale.
1. Clear unwanted items and clean
Clear out all clutter and remove items you don’t regularly use. Donate items that haven’t been used in the last twelve months, throw away items that are broken or damaged, shred and dispose of paperwork that is no longer needed, and move items you don’t need into a storage facility.
When you clean, pay attention to small details. Wash windows, dust everywhere, wash curtains, clean appliances and get your carpets professionally shampooed.
2. Maintenance check
This step will help you avoid any unpleasant surprises during the sale process.
Inspect your walls and floors for damage, check for plumbing leaks, make sure your windows don’t have broken seals, fix any problems that you find. A fresh coat of paint in areas that need it won't go astray. Use neutral colours. Nothing too radical.
3. Freshen up
Don't use airfresheners. Eliminate odours by removing offending articles, place scented flowers in the kitchen and or lounge room. Maybe bake some bread in the oven just before showing potential buyers.
4. Create a welcoming entrance.
First impressions count for a lot. Make the entrance to your home as inviting as possible. Tidy the garden, keep the lawns neatly trimmed and mowed. Remove any dead or scruffy foliage. Make the entrance hallway or area inside your front door attractive and inviting.
These are just a few tips to get you started. A wealth of information is available on other real estate related web sites.
