    Quick and Easy Tips for Preparing Your House for Sale

    10 tips to improve your house’s curb appeal

    • Give your entry a facelift with either a new coat of paint or a new front door
    • Don’t forget to landscape your yard! A well-groomed lawn shows buyers that the home was taken care of
    • Make sure all exterior lights are in working order & replace all outdoor light bulbs
    • Wash all windows (inside & out) – you don’t want to take away from a great view with dirty windows!
    • Clean out your garage! Consider getting a storage unit to store any non-essential items
    • Depending on the climate in your area, add a pop of color by planting flowers
    • Remove any lawn ornaments that you will want to bring with you to your new home
    • Replace a worn out welcome mat to welcome buyers as they tour the home
    • Paint or replace the street numbers on the house, making them more visible
    • Power wash any outdoor surfaces to give them a “like new” feel (ex: siding, sidewalks, driveway)

    10 tips to make your house feel like home to buyers

    • Clean everything! A clean home will allow buyers to picture themselves in the space and not distract them
    • Give every room a purpose – even if you used it as a bonus room, giving it an identity will help buyers
    • Let the light in! Bright rooms feel warm & inviting; dark rooms feel small & gloomy
    • Fix anything that is broken! Buyers will notice & may offer less for you house if repairs are required
    • Declutter your house! Thinning out your closets & pantries will show how much room is available
    • Fresh paint & new carpet are the top 2 things you can do to help your home sell faster and for more money
    • Organize the kitchen! Store any non-essential, small appliances & clean all surfaces
    • Before your home is shown, empty all trash bins & hide any dirty laundry
    • Make sure all doors open & close smoothly. Fix any squeaks on bedroom or closet doors
    • Replace light bulbs with new ones & make sure all switches work
