Tips for Selling quickly
A Few Things To Do to Help Increase Value and Decrease Time to Sale
Clean & Clean
Scrub baseboards, showers, kitchen counters and everything in between until the whole house sparkles. If your home is older or looks "too loved", dress things up with new flooring, rented furniture or fresh paint in a warm, neutral color.
Natural light is best, but even turning on lamps and overhead lights can make a house more vibrant. A pleasant smell is important. Air fresheners or mild smelling candles can make a big difference!
Clear away clutter. Put knick-knacks out of site. Make sure bookshelves and magazine racks aren't crowded. Give unused items a second life by donating them to a local charity or selling them at a yard sale.
Consider packing away extra furniture so that rooms appear more spacious and bright.
Adding new plants and fresh flowers both indoors and out is a nice touch!
Make small repairs such as tightening loose cabinets and touching up the grout to reassure buyers the home has been well cared for.
Curb appeal is IMPORTANT. Make sure to keep the lawn and bushes manicured. If you have rocks, make sure they are swept away from walkways and spread out evenly. leaving no bare spots. Trim trees. Touch up paint on stucco and eaves also helps to brighten and freshen up!
Look with a critical eye. Unusual art, religious symbols or photography could be a turnoff to others.
