Planning To Sell Your Fort Worth Home?
So you're planning to sell your Fort Worth home. Your home will sell faster at a higher price if it shows well. Potential buyers will get the best impression if your home is clean, neat, uncluttered, has good lighting and is in good condition. Use this checklist of general suggestions as a guideline to get your Fort Worth home ready to show.
Clean Everything A clean home signals to the buyer that this home has been well cared for and is most likely in good condition. A messy or dirty home will cause prospective buyers to notice every flaw.
Let There Be Light Raise the shades. Open the blinds. Pull back any curtains. Clean your light fixtures, put bright bulbs in all lamps to brighten each room and make them feel larger.
Unclutter Your home before you show it. The simplest way to do this is to have a garage sale, empty your closets and donate to local charities.
Repairs Anything that is broken including Plumbing, Electrical, Windows, Screens,
Doors and Fences should be repaired.
Send pets away or secure them outside of the home when prospective buyers will be arriving. You never know if a home shopper could be allergic to animals and you would not want to take the chance that your furry friend could escape during their showing.
Paint There's nothing that improves the value of a home for less money than a fresh coat of paint. Neutral colors could be more appealing to prospective buyers.
I prefer homeowners not be in the home during the time that prospective buyers are looking. Some conversations, even the simplest can be damaging.
Pay attention to your Landscaping mow regularly, water the lawn as needed, remove dead plants and trim around the base of your fences for a clean neat appearance.
Make sure the temperature in your home is comfortable and inviting.
