Tips for Preparing Your Home for Sale

  • Tidy up the grounds, porches and garage. Keep the lawn trimmed and edged. Make sure that your yard is clean. First impressions count!
  • Your front door adds to that first impression - be sure it is scrubbed or repainted if necessary.
  • Wash windows and clean/dust window coverings.
  • If any decorating or painting is needed (especially in the kitchen), do it now!  Twenty dollars worth of paint will make a much larger difference in the sales price.
  • Bathrooms help sell homes. Make this room sparkle.
  • Illumination is like a welcome sign. Replace bulbs and turn on the lights.
  • Wash dishes, make beds, put away clothes and straighten up.
  • Keep pets out of the way during showings – many people are allergic.
  • Leave the showing to the salesperson. The salesperson knows the buyer’s requirements and can best emphasize the features of your home. If possible, leave the house during a showing.
  • Don’t discuss anything about the sale with a potential customer. Let your agent discuss price, terms, possession and other items concerning the sale. Your agent is qualified to bring negotiations to a favorable conclusion.
  • Pack away valuables, store extra furniture, knick-knacks, guns and medicines.

Look at your home objectively. Pretend you are seeing it for the first time, through a buyer’s eyes.
