READY FOR SALE
A house that "sparkles" on the surface will sell faster than its shabby neighbor, even though both are structurally well-maintained. From experience, REALTOR® also know that a "well-polished" house appeals to more buyers and will sell faster and for a higher price.
Additionally, buyers feel more comfortable purchasing a well-cared for home because if what they can see is maintained, what they can't see has probably also been maintained.
1. How Much Should You Spend In preparing your home for the market, spend as little money as possible. Buyers will be impressed by a brand new roof, but they aren't likely to give you enough extra money to pay for it. There is a big difference between making minor and inexpensive "polishes" and "touch-ups" to your house, such as putting new knobs on cabinets and a fresh coat of neutral paint in the living room, and doing extensive and costly renovations, like installing a new kitchen. Your REALTOR®, who is familiar with buyers' expectations in your neighborhood, can advise you specifically on what improvements need to be made.Don't hesitate to ask for advice.
2.The Exterior "Curb Appeal"
Preparing the exterior (curb appeal) of your home for sale is probably the most important step you can take. If you can't get them through the front door, you can't get them to buy. If they don't like what they see when they drive up, you lost a potential buyer. So take some time, and get unbiased opinions of what needs to be spruced up, changed, or removed.
3. Preparing the Interior
Once you have the "curb appeal" taken care of, it's time to head inside and prepare the inside as well. Again, get some unbiased opinions of what should be changed, what should be cleared out and put in storage, and what should be emphasized. You have a potential buyers interest if you got them inside to look around... don't lose them now.
