Now that you have decided to put your home on the market, and the overwhelm is setting in and you’re asking yourself “Where to start?.”
Here are a few guidelines to follow to get your home sold faster and for more money.
I’ve helped hundreds of sellers here in the San Diego area to sell their homes and I understand the overwhelm. I have found that by having a plan to follow, you can better prepare your home for those house hunters.
The first thing you can do is a big one and that is to Declutter and Deep Clean your home. This can be a long process, but the sooner you start the better.
Take a really good look at each room, and pack up anything that you won’t need for the next few months. This would include personal items and pictures. Remember, you’ll be moving the stuff soon anyways, so you’re getting a head start on that part.
Next, you want to make sure that your home is spic and span clean. By decluttering and cleaning your home, it will look much bigger and brighter.
Also, when a buyer sees a dirty home they feel that the home may not have been well kept and we don’t want to give buyers any reason to look elsewhere.
Next, If you have any little projects you started but didn’t get around to finishing, you will want to get those done. And be sure that structural or mechanical items are in working order. That would be items like you’re Air Conditioning and water heater.
These are some great tips for the inside, next I want you to think about creating a great first impression which brings me to CURB APPEAL. For that and for more practical steps to you need to think about when selling, just watch the next video.
