HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR SALE ON A BUDGET

Appearance is everything when it comes to selling your home. Home staging and careful home preparations play a vital role in reducing your home’s time on the market and can help bring in higher offers! Here are some ways to prepare your home without breaking the bank:

REMOVE ALL CLUTTER

You want your buyers to view your home as their own. Having a cluttered home makes it difficult for the buyers to imagine themselves living in it and to see the potential your home offers. Store all your personalized items such as family pictures, personal collections, or toys if you have kids.  Pack away anything that is eating up space.

CLEAN

This is not your ordinary day to day cleaning. Nobody wants a dirty and smelly home. It is a must to have your house cleaned and deodorized prior to showings. Make sure everything is spotless. Get down to the nitty-gritty, follow the method of top-to-bottom, left to right method to make sure nothing is missed and overlooked.

IMPROVE THE CURB APPEAL

First impression is everything. Enhancing your curb appeal is equally as important as cleaning your home. If buyers see a house and love the exterior, they will most likely want to see the inside as well. Make sure you mow the lawn, remove dead shrubs and leaves and clear the driveway and sidewalk of clutter. This is your only chance to make a first impression. Make your house stand out from the rest.

Selling your home is a big deal! Use all these budget-friendly tips to make buyers feel that the home has been well taken care of and loved.
