Tags: Selling Your Home

Before putting your home on the market, make sure it is properly organized. A few minor touch-ups can go a long way towards making a favourable impression on potential buyers and making a deal.

Here are a few steps you can take to make sure your house sells fast and for top dollar.

Clean

Dust on top the fireplace mantle and fan blades, polish your appliances and faucets and give the windows thorough washing.
 

De-Clutter


Big Kitchens, bathrooms, and storage tend to be selling points so it can help to make your rooms look as spacious as possible. Depersonalizing your home makes it easier for potential buyers to visualize how the house might look filled with their items.

 

identify repairs


Normal wear and tear can add up, especially if you've lived in your home for a long time. Go through room by room, noting repairs that need to be made. Replace cracked floor, patch any holes in walls, leaky faucets, and burned-out light bulbs.

ORGANIZE CLOSETS & CABINETS

It is important to keep your closets and cabinets organized. When a buyer sees everything organized, it shows that you take care of your possessions and likely took good care of the house.

REPAINT

Adding a fresh coat of neutral paint colours like tans, greys, and whites will not only appeal to buyers but will allow buyers to picture their belongings in your home. It can also make a home feel new and help a small room appear larger.
