Not sure how to get your house ready to sell?

Fortunately, you can take steps before putting your home on the market to increase your chances of receiving a solid offer from a buyer. From cleaning and staging to repainting and depersonalizing, here are some things you can do to get a house ready to sell:

  • Declutter and Depersonalize: Remove any unnecessary items and clutter from your home. Depersonalize the space by taking down personal photos and memorabilia, allowing buyers to envision themselves living there.
  • Clean and Organize: Give your home a thorough cleaning, including floors, windows, walls, and all living spaces. Organize closets and storage areas to make them appear more spacious.
  • Make Repairs: Fix any noticeable issues like leaky faucets, squeaky doors, broken tiles, or peeling paint. Small repairs can make a big difference in the overall impression of the house.
  • Enhance Curb Appeal: First impressions matter, so make sure the exterior of your house looks inviting. Trim the lawn, add fresh mulch, plant flowers, and repaint the front door if needed.
  • Stage the House: Consider staging your home to highlight its best features and create an appealing atmosphere. This can help buyers visualize the potential of each room.
  • Improve Lighting: Ensure that your home is well-lit and bright. Replace any burnt-out bulbs, open curtains, and clean windows to allow natural light to flood the rooms.
  • Neutralize Colors: Consider repainting rooms in neutral colors to create a blank canvas for buyers. Neutral tones help them envision their own style and décor.
  • Tackle Odors: Remove any unpleasant odors (such as smoke and pet odors) from your home. Avoid strong scents, as some buyers may be sensitive to them. “If you can smell it, you can’t sell it.”
  • Highlight Energy Efficiency: If your house has energy-efficient features, such as LED lighting or smart thermostats, highlight them to attract eco-conscious buyers.
  • Show Off Outdoor Spaces: If you have a backyard or patio, showcase these areas as valuable extensions of the living space. Arrange outdoor furniture to create an inviting ambiance.
  • Gather Necessary Documents: Get all the necessary paperwork and documentation related to your property ready for potential buyers or their agents.

Remember, the goal is to present your home in the best possible light to attract potential buyers. By following these steps and having TR Realty behind you to prepare, (possibly) stage, and present your home, you’ll increase your chances of selling your house quickly and at a favorable price.
