You have decided to sell your home. Before you go forth looking to hire a real estate agent, there are things you should consider doing around your home first.
Update your landscaping: Home buyers will become emotionally attached to a home for sale within minutes of first seeing it. A nice landscape can sell a home quickly since it is the first thing that potential buyer will see. Add mulch, remove dead or damaged vegetation, and plant bright and colorful flowers. This is a simple day task that will not cost much.
Add new paint and flooring: If you have to ask if it needs to be done, it probably needs to. Installation, however, may not be in your budget. Instead, get a good cleaning done on your carpet. Make sure all stains are out of the carpet. If you have wood floors, re-stain your floors if needed. If there are nicks in the walls paint job, consider repainting the walls to make the room look fresh.
Staging: When potential buyers view your home, they are going to want to imagine themselves living in your home. Make it appear as if you have moved out already, or that your home has stepped out of an interior design magazine. Declutter your home as much as possible. Remove any personal pictures, decorations, and personal items, while decluttering any shelf and counter spaces. You can pack up these items for now, while your home is on the market. This will help when your does sell, and you are moving out; you will already be halfway packed up.
