1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
When it comes to Bozeman real estate, you will find a lot of speculation out there on housing values, prices and market changes. Rather than believing all that you hear, make sure that your information comes from a reliable source. Did you know that Montana is a non-disclosure state? That means that a home’s sold price is not public information. The only way to know for sure what your home is worth is to speak with a member of the Gallatin Association of Realtors. This is the surest way make sure the information you are basing your decisions on is accurate.
While you may have loved that dark red accent wall you painted 5 years ago, the truth is most home buyers will not. Neutral home décor, wall colors and even furniture can help buyers to see your home as a blank slate allowing them to picture themselves living in your home. On top of that, recent home design trends have been leaning towards neutral pallets. In an article from HGTV, designer Patrick Flynn explains “Colorless design is something that is really striking a chord as new and fresh. It’s all about the use of texture and shape rather than color and contrast.”
3. GET IT SQUEAKY CLEAN
Nothing makes a home feel better than a good, deep clean. Getting your home ready to sell means cleaning and decluttering as much as possible. Dusting off the baseboards, cleaning out the closets and making sure all the built-up gunk and junk are gone makes a BIG difference when it comes to selling your home.
