Consider fresh paint, wallpaper, and professional carpet cleaning. This small investment will often increase your home’s value tremendously.
Take the time to clean out excess items now ( give to Goodwill for a tax deduction). Not only will it make your move easier, but it will help your house show better. Closets, cabinets, and garages should be given particular attention.
Small repairs should be made now(i.e., leaky faucets, loose knobs, doors, and windows that stick.)
Kitchen and bathrooms should be spotless.
Showing Your Home
Leave the buyers and their agent alone. Your presence will often stifle the buyer’s true reaction (good or bad) and eliminate your home as a possibility. If they have questions, let them come and find you.
Light will make your home more appealing, during the day, make sure all curtains and blinds are open. For even showing, turn on all lights brefore the buyer arrives.
Loud televisions or stereos are not a good sales tool. Turn them down or off.
Pets are best out of the way, especially if they are active or noisy.
