Making Your Home More Salable
Before You Sell
Before you put your home on the market, take an impartial look at your property, inside and out. You may have only one chance to pique potential buyers' interest when they view your home, so don't let easily correctable flaws stand in the way.
Spend As Little As Possible
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® suggests that sellers spend as little as possible on pre-sale repairs and improvements. While new tile might really spark up your kitchen, potential buyers probably won't increase their purchase offers enough to compensate your expenses.
Instead, focus on the small, relatively inexpensive touch-ups that will give your house a polished, well-maintained appearance. A fresh coat of neutral paint in your bedrooms and new cabinet knobs in the kitchen and bathrooms are small changes that buyers will appreciate. Thoroughly clean the insides of appliances and wash and deodorize carpets. In addition, clean out closets and cabinets; this gives your home a more spacious appearance. Check for and repair cracks, leaks and other damage to walls, floors, paint and attic.
Exterior Curb Appeal
You also need to ensure that your home's exterior curb appeal is attractive to buyers. Maintain the upkeep of your existing landscaping, but don't plant new shrubs or trees. A few well placed potted plants add a nice touch. Examine doors, windows and the overall exterior for peeling paint. Repair loose or damaged roof shingles, siding and caulking.
