3 improvements for selling your home

Real Estate Agent with Innovative Realty Solutions Group BK3248318

Getting your home ready for sale can be daunting. Many sellers dont know where to start and watching HGTV just confuses and disillusions them more. Not all improvements will bring a return for the investment, and sometimes it is best to just adjust the price accordingly.
Some of the best improvements aren't ones that cost much bit make the biggest bang!

1. CLEAN- not just a quick dusting but a thorough one, From ceiling to floor look at every surface.. Is there dust debris --- look at the AC vents? Tops of the frames of the artwork,photos ,glass fronts ?  Cabinet crown molding? Window treatments and windows ? Furniture legs ? Baseboards?

2. DECLUTTER- Now is the time, Box it up.. LESS is more, Showcase the space.

3. PAINT- not every room  will need painted , but any room that looks tired/ outdated , dark will be hundreds less off the offer ( per room)
Dont overlook front door.. this is probablly the biggest bang for the buck.
Its the first and last part of the home they see.

If in doubt , partner with a Home Stager who works with you using your current furniture. They may suggest a few accessories. Dont panic. it's to set your home at the best light possible.

Good morning, Lesley Wilson-VanGoethem by doing those three tasks, a home could easily sell for more money.... and it costs minimal to do those tasks...

Barbara, it always amazes me when sellers say, I dont want to invest more money , or Im not painting , because they wont like it anyway..
While it may not always bring more, it definitely takes away a few arguments for submitting a lower offer!

Sometimes the simplest tasks can have the greatest impact when you're trying to sell your home. Decluttering is one of the most important things you can do to help prospective buyers see themselves living in your home.
