Getting Your Home Ready To Sell!

May I suggest the following tips to prepare your home for market and to help you get top dollar!

•Keep the grass cut and edged, bushes trimmed and flower beds weeded.
•Turn on all the lights inside and out for night time showings.
•Clean out gutters and downspouts.
•Sweep your sidewalks and keep the garage door closed.
•Repaint pealing areas of your home's exterior.
•Replace light bulbs in outdoor lighting fixtures if needed.
•Check windows and repair torn screens.
•Touch up paint on the inside. A fresh coat of paint can work wonders.
•Replace broken or missing shingles on the roof.
•Remove furniture from overcrowded rooms, this will make rooms feel larger to potential buyers.
•Open curtains and drapes to make rooms bright and cheery.
•Use neutral colors whenever possible.
•Make sure the entry area is not cluttered and is well lit.
•Clean appliances; organize cabinets and clear countertops to make work surfaces appear larger.
•Closets should be neat and organized; this will make them appear larger.
•Remove unnecessary items from garage and basement. Clean up and organize the furnace and laundry areas.
•Have the carpets cleaned and consider replacing worn carpet.
Try to picture your home through a buyer's eyes.

All The Best,
