What should I do to prepare my home for sale?

When you're ready to sell,  you need to begin to see your home with the eyes of a potential buyer. They need to be able to see themselves living in the house. A home that is move in ready appeals to a wider range of buyers, so you should consider making minor repairs and cosmetic improvements prior to putting your home on the market. Things to consider:

  • Curb Appeal: What can you do to improve first impressions? New paint, some flowering plants in pots?
  • Home Staging: You want your home to look neutral and tidy to perspective buyers so they can see its full potential and aren’t distracted by clutter and overly personalized touches.
  • Major Improvements: As your REALTORS®, we can advise you on what sorts of improvements will give you value for money, and which won’t. Just ask!
