A local Realtor® will provide you with a comparable market analysis CMA) that will give you a guideline as to what your home is worth. You may be surprised at the value of your home. A local Realtor® will market your property and find the ideal buyer for your home.
Once you’ve found a Realtor® that you feel comfortable working with, they will advise you on some tips to give your home the best chance to sell quickly and close to asking price.
Keep Your Yard Neat and Tidy
Mow the grass, pull weeds, plant some flowers. Remove any lawn ornaments that have sentimental value. A potential buyer might like the garden gnome that was given to you by your great-aunt Suzie, when you were 9 years old, and may want to keep it for their own.
Power Wash the Outside of Your Home
Have your home, sidewalks, pool deck and driveway power washed. A stained driveway or front walk might give the impression that the inside of the house is as derelict as the outside.
Clean Out the Garage
Don’t store all the things that you are moving in the garage. Buyers are going to want to see the dimensions of the garage to ensure that their pickup truck is going to fit. Rent a storage unit for a month or two to keep your belongings in.
Wash the Windows Inside and Out
Let people see what a great view you have from clean windows.
Welcome Potential Buyers
Add a new welcome mat. A new mat will be welcoming to all potential buyers who enter your home.
Make the Outside Inviting
Replace or paint your house number so that it is visible from the street. Make certain that all outside lighting is operable and replace any bulbs that are burned out.
Clean the Pool Area
Have your pool cleaned and the area around the pool free of any fall hazards. Sell your home in a more timely manner when things are kept pristine and potential buyers can see themselves living there.
