In this article I'll share my insights into how to prepare your home to sell quickly and for top dollar.
From experience, REALTORS® know that a "well-polished" house appeals to more buyers and will sell faster and for a higher price. Additionally, buyers feel more comfortable purchasing a well-cared for home because if what they can see is maintained, what they can't see has probably also been maintained. In readying your house for sale, consider:
- Clean, clean, clean! Remove clutter & personal items.
- Removing the less frequently used, even daily used items from kitchen counters, closets, and attics, making these areas much more inviting.
- If necessary, repainting dingy, soiled or strongly colored walls with a neutral shade of paint.
