How to Get Your Home Ready to Sell

Here’s my guidance for preparing your home to be listed for sale.

If you're thinking about listing your home for sale, here are my ideas for how to prepare your home to sell quickly and for the most money possible:

1. Clear the clutter. Take this time to get rid of items in your home that no longer serve a purpose to you. You can do this by going through all the old boxes from your garage and calling your favorite donation centers to come and pick up those items. You should also clean out your junk drawers and closets that just seem to collect all the spare ‘stuff’ you don’t want to take to your new home. If you do all this, you’ll feel clean and fresh by the time it comes to list your home.

2. Depersonalize. I know that your family photos are so important to you, but when you’re listing your home, the buyers need to be able to imagine themselves living there. Take down your family photos and heirlooms and store them away out of sight.

"A clean, decluttered home looks bigger and shows off much more storage space to potential buyers."

3. Clean. Clean your home like your mother-in-law is coming over for a visit. Clear off your countertops and other surfaces, wash and put away your dishes, take out your trash, and scrub your bathrooms from top to bottom. A clean, decluttered home looks bigger and shows off much more storage space to potential buyers. Also, a great idea when decorating your home is to keep touch-up samples of the paint in your house. That way, when it comes time to take down the photos and shelves you’ve put up, it will make touching up the paint extremely easy.

4. Bring your listing agent to tour.
Take them room by room through the house and ask their perspective about what you can do to improve the home before it’s listed. They can tell you where your money is best spent to get a return when your home ultimately sells.

If you have any more questions about preparing your home for sale or would like additional advice about your specific home, give us a call or send an email. We’d love to help you get your property in great shape so that you can sell it for as much money as possible.
