7 Tips On How To Get Your Home Ready To Sell

  •  Declutter Your Home

When your home is clutter free, buyers can focus on the home itself instead of the junk, overflowing  closets, and other random items around the house. For advice on how to organize your home, click here

  • Give Your Home A Deep Clean

Two words: First Impression. First impressions go a long way. Don’t let dirty floors, dusty surfaces and weird smells scare away potential buyers. Clean your bathrooms, wipe down surfaces, sweep, mop, and vacuum your floors; and if need be, consider calling in the professionals. For a list of  professional home cleaners in the K.C. area, click here

  • Call A Handyman

Going along with keeping your home in pristine condition, you should also make sure all of your appliances and hardware are all up to date and working. This includes anything from locks and squeaky doors, to running toilets or any broken appliances. These need to be taken care of before listing your home; if a buyer sees these unflattering problems, they may assume the house has not been taken care of.

  • Paint The Walls 

Neutral colors such as whites, beiges, and grays are more appealing to potential buyers. Now is the time to paint over any bright colored walls. By doing this, not only are you attracting the buyers, but your home will appear bigger, brighter, and more inviting. For a list of painting contractors in the K.C. area, click here

  • Stage Your Home

Staging your home can help it sell faster and for money. Some quick and easy steps you can take to do this are: remove personal photos, add fresh flowers to various rooms, and keep each room smelling fresh and clean. There are many other steps you can take as well but this is a great way to start. 

  • Hire A Professional Photographer

Many buyers search for homes online meaning the first impression they have of your home is from a picture. Without high resolution pictures, your home could very easily get overlooked. This is why it is important to hire a professional - they will have the know how and experience to capture the beauty of your home. Many realtors can help in finding one for you, so make sure to ask who they use. 

  • Buy More Light Bulbs 

This may seem silly, but when showing your home, all of the lights need to be on. This means every light fixture and lamp. All of the lights must have working light bulbs, so keeping extra around the house is a must.
