Planning to sell your home? If so, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the details. Preparing to put your home on the market involves cleaning, marketing, and plenty of paperwork. It’s stressful. We know that. All you have to do to make your life easier is set aside a few weekends and follow these three steps. Be ready to make an impression, because potential buyers will eat your home up once you make the listing live!

Clean and Declutter

Now is the perfect time to clean and declutter your home. Purge the entire household of unwanted or unnecessary items. In addition to donating your old goods, you may consider selling them for some extra moving cash. Furthermore, recyclers are often willing to scoop up large metal for free. The goal here is to ensure your home is a clean slate for potential buyers. They need to imagine themselves and their items in the house, not yours.

Make Repairs

Has the upstairs faucet been leaking? Perhaps now is the time to fix the problem. Before listing your home, make sure everything is in pristine condition. At least, do your best to make the house presentable.

  • Replace caulk around the tub or shower
  • Freshen up grout
  • Repair walls and repaint them in a neutral tone
  • Fix cracked windows
  • Replace damaged window screens
  • Replace old light bulbs

Curb Appeal Matters

When selling a home, first impressions honestly matter. Potential buyers should pull up along the curb and immediately be charmed by your home from the outside. Extend your cleaning schedule to the outside.

  • Trim bushes and trees
  • Repair downspouts or gutters
  • Apply mulch or gravel
  • Clean and repair concrete walkways
  • Dress things up a little with potted annuals or a welcome mat
