10 Tips On Preparing Your Home For Sale

Posted on March 24, 2017 at 8:35 PM


 

So after giving it lots of thought, you’ve finally decided to sell your home. Where do you begin you wonder?

                        Here are 10 tips on preparing the exterior of your home before it goes on the market.


1. Start by visiting the Trulia and Zillow real estate websites for your area. This will give you an idea of your competition. Look at the pictures and see what you like and what you don’t like about other houses that are for sale. These become your models.


2. Decide if you need to have your home painted. If that’s not an option, check into having it professionally power washed. That will make a world of difference.


3. Drive through your neighborhood and really take a look – is it clean, inviting, or dirty, unkempt, and unappealing? You can’t change the neighbhood, but look at your exterior of your home the same way—clean and inviting is what you want.


4. Make sure the driveway is clean and free of oil stains and cracks—if not, power wash it, repair those cracks and if necessary reseal the driveway. Repeat the same with your sidewalk.


5. Repair your fence and gates—make sure all gate latches are in workable order and replace them if they are worn or not working.


6. Make sure your garage door operates properly—does it need repair or painting?


7. Remove all debris from your gutters and eaves. Replace any broken or out of date light fixtures.


8. Check your yard—both front and back to make sure the lawn is kept freshly mowed, all your plants and shrubs are trimmed, and dead ones are replaced. New flowers and plants will do wonders for the look of your yard and consequently your home.


9. Check your exterior doors and sliders to make sure they open and close easily. WD-40 does wonders for sticky or noisy doors.


10. Store all landscaping equipment out of sight. Repeat the same for toys, bikes, and non-drivable cars.


First impressions either make or kill the deal—you have to make potential buyers want to come inside to see all the wonderful rooms your home holds, so make the outside of your home inviting.
