How To Prep Your Home To Make It Stand Out

If you do these three things, you can make your home sale more profitable.

Moving can be a stressful time, but with the right preparation, you can make the process smoother. Here are three things you should do before you move:

1. Look like you’re moving. Remove any items that are too personal to make it look more like you’re moving out. Personal items can be stored in the garage or packed in boxes. By doing this, you’ll create a blank canvas for potential buyers to envision themselves in the house.

2. Paint any walls that are an odd or bold color. While your favorite color may look fantastic to you, it may not be appealing to everyone. Neutral colors make your space look more open and inviting. It doesn’t cost a lot of money, but it does impact your ability to sell the house.

3. Repair any damages. Fix the broken fans, faucets, and any drywall with holes. When buyers walk into your home, make sure that everything is working in proper order.

It’s also essential to remember that upgrades don’t always equate to higher home values. A good real estate agent can help guide you on what improvements to make and which ones to avoid. I had a client who had planned to spend $20,000 to $30,000 on upgrades that I thought wouldn’t give them a good ROI. I advised them against it, and they ended up saving that money instead.

In conclusion, these three things may seem like small details, but they can make a significant impact on the sale of your home. Take the time to prepare your space and seek advice from a professional. If you need any help with this, call or email me. I’d be happy to help.
