How can I make my home more appealing to buyers?
Whether you want to list your Colorado home for sale today, or plan to buy a new home soon, you may find yourself asking questions like: “What should I do first? What exactly is a pre-listing inspection, anyway?” We’ve got some answers for those questions plus many others. So check out these tips for preparing your home for sale, and get ready to start marketing your property today!
- Get Ready
The best way to prepare your home for the market is to give it a thorough cleaning before listing it. You don’t want potential buyers seeing a cluttered kitchen or dirty floors after a long day spent cooking dinner. Make sure everything looks good and smells fresh-from-the-oven (or clean-from-a-long-day-of-cooking). Plus, if any appliances have broken down recently, fix them now. Potential buyers won’t mind taking care of minor repairs themselves, but they’ll definitely notice if something’s wrong.
- Clean Up Outside
If you’re hoping to sell your home in the near future, improve curb appeal. Try raking leaves, trimming trees and bushes, applying mulch, planting flowers, and adding new landscaping features. Also, make sure the exterior of your home is free of clutter and trash. Even small items like newspapers and empty soda cans can cause problems for prospective buyers.
- Remove Clutter
Once you’ve cleaned up inside and outside, take a few minutes to go through each room in your home and remove anything that doesn’t belong. Clear off tables and shelves, sweep away cobwebs, empty garbage bags, throw out old magazines and newspapers, and tidy up clothing piles. Throw out whatever you no longer use, including expired food, old furniture, and broken electronics.
- Fix Leaks & Other Problems
Problems with plumbing can lead to water damage, mold, mildew, and even structural issues. A leaky toilet or sink can really hurt your chances of getting top dollar for your home. Check around the faucet for leaks, and repair any that you spot. While you’re doing so, consider replacing your fixtures with high quality models to avoid further damage.
- Create a Staging Plan
As mentioned above, you want to ensure your home is well maintained and clean before putting it on the market. But once you’ve done that, you’ll still need to create a staging plan for your home that shows how great it looks. Use pictures to show off the nicest aspects of your home, like spacious rooms, beautiful views, and stunning decor. Include details like window treatments.
