If you have been thinking of putting your home on the market, this is the time. We are experiencing a wonderful real estate market and so stop thinking and get going.
You can prepare your home for sale without breaking the bank. You don't have to put in a new kitchen or bath to sell. There are some home improvements you can tackle without spending a great deal of money.
1. Anything you are not taking with you, get rid of now. That means not only the living space but the attic and basement too.
2. If you have way too much furniture but can't face giving it away. Call a storage company and store it for a short time. Nothing worse than walking around furniture in a crowded room.
3. Clean, clean, clean.
wash windows, clean grout, clean rugs and furniture, freshen curtains or replace.
4. If rugs are worn, remove if you have wood floors or replace.
5. If some rooms are in need of paint, then paint. If you can drive a car, you can paint. It is the cheapest and biggest difference you can make in a home.
6. Stand outside your home.
Does it look inviting?
Is the grass cut?
How are the shrubs?
Is their some color, if not add some potted flowers.
Now check the yard, same thing goes.
Do you have toys or tools laying around?
Is your fence in good shape?
OK you are just about ready to go. Now call an experienced REALTOR and price the home fairly.
