Do These 3 Things Before Listing Your House
Planning to sell your house this year? Now’s the perfect time to prep it for listing! The little things make all the difference when it comes to making a great first impression. Follow these three DIY tips to get your house ready to list this spring!
Cleaning and Decluttering
Not only will cleaning and decluttering make your house look amazing when buyers come, but it will also prep you for moving out. Purging your house of unwanted and unnecessary items will make the packing process a lot easier in addition to making your home look more appealing. Spring is on its way, so getting started as soon as possible on your room-by-room deep cleaning will make your home shine. Pay special attention to kitchens and bathrooms and clean the inside and outside of your windows to improve your home’s overall appearance. Remember that potential buyers will also want to evaluate the storage space in your house, so make sure those closets and cabinets are looking neat and organized.
Handle Small Easy Repairs
If you are noticing some small easy-to-fix issues around the house, now is the time to get them fixed. Items such as leaky faucets, squeaky doors, loose handles/doorknobs, damaged screens, or burned-out lightbulbs need your attention before buyers arrive. You may also want to consider replacing caulk around tubs, showers and sinks, freshen up or repair grout, or repair and repaint walls in a neutral color.
Boost Your Curb Appeal
A house’s exterior is the first feature prospective home buyers will see during their visit, and the spring season is a crucial time to ensure your house’s curb appeal is up-to-date. Your yard will be coming back to life, so trim up any bushes, shrubs and trees and freshen up any flower beds or areas with mulch. Repair any broken downspouts and gutters, clean and repair concrete areas, update any outdoor lighting, and fill any holes or cracks in your driveway with asphalt patch. Freshen up your doorstep with a new welcome mat and make sure the house numbers are easy to see.
