What do you recommend sellers do to make sure their selling process is smooth?
Getting Your Home Ready For Sale
As the market slows, more homes will linger on the market and buyers will have more choices. It has never been more imperative that sellers take extra care to make their house as appealing as possible to buyers.
How much should you spend?
In preparing your home for the market, you want to get the biggest bang for your buck possible. Buyers might be impressed by a much-needed new roof, but they won’t even notice it if the front yard is hopelessly overgrown and a shutter is hanging askew, and they aren’t going to pay a higher price simply because your house has a new roof. "Polishes" and "touch ups" are what you want, not extensive and costly renovations. As an experienced real estate agent, I understand buyer expectations in our local area, and I can advise you specifically on which improvements need to be made and which improvements will get you the highest return on your investment. I can also recommend the best professionals to help you get those improvements done.
Maximizing your house’s exterior and curb appeal
As the old adage goes, "you never get a second chance to make a first impression." Nowhere is this more true than with home sales. Strong curb appeal can go a long way toward making up for other shortcomings. And don’t forget the backyard, too. A well-manicured front yard and a neglected back yard will make buyers wonder where else you are cutting corners. To enhance your house’s exterior and curb appeal, check the following and repair as necessary:
Have to lawn edged, cut short and watered, and make arrangements to have this done again on a weekly basis while the house is on the market
The same goes for trimming the hedges, weeding the lawn, weeding the flowerbeds and pruning the trees – in front of the house AND behind
Check the foundation, steps, walkways, walls and patios for cracks and crumbling
Inspect doors and windows for peeling paint
Clean and align gutters
