Preparing Your Fort Worth Home For Sale
Preparing your Fort Worth home for sale. Pack up those personal photographs and family treasures. Buyers may not be able to see past your personal material and might be distracted. You want buyers to imagine their own personal photos on your walls. You want buyers to say "I can see myself living here."
Rearrange bedroom closets and kitchen cabinets. While perspective buyers are viewing your home they will open closets - they will look in your cabinets. What will they think if items are poorly arranged or worse, crammed in tight spaces - making your space appear to be small? What if items tumble and fall! If everything is organized their impression will be - there's enough space here for MY personal items.
Although there is a paragraph in the contract which you may list items that will not convey with the sale of your home it's always best to remove and replace your favorite items. If you want to take your window coverings, appliances or special fixtures, remove these items and replace. I have had buyers ask for framed decorated prints, planters even outdoor play equipment. If a buyer does not see it they will not want it. Once the prospective buyer ask for an item and you choose not to let that particular item convey with the home it could break the deal. Pack these items up or get a small storage unit to utilize while your property is on the market.
Make minor repairs and clean your house until it sparkles.
Let's face it, curb appeal is a very important factor. If a buyer does not get out of their car because they do not like the exterior of your home you will never get them inside. Keep your sidewalks cleared, trim your bushes and make sure that your address is clearly visible from the street.
Prospective buyers are driving around your neighborhood. If your thinking about selling your home give me a call for a professional opinion. Our inventory is low this summer. I would love to help you make your next move!
