Home Preparation

Preparing your home for the market? Not sure where to start? Here are some tips to ensure your home is looking at its best while showing to a prospective buyer!

Preparing the Exterior

- Clean or power-wash (if possible) dirty siding.

 

- Make sure all gardens and walkways are weeded.

 

- If there is moss on your roof, be sure to remove it

  before selling. 

- Keep your shrubs and trees trimmed, especially if

  they are blocking the view of your home.  Let's 

  face it, you have a beautiful home, why not

  show it off a little?

Preparing the Interior

- Make sure the air temperature is comfortable.

- Keep your home bright, tidy and inviting.

 

- Open all curtains and blinds to let in as much 

  natural light as possible.

 

- If you have pets, make sure that their living areas 

  are odor free. If you have a dog, it is best to remove

  your dog from the home during showings.

Necessary Repairs

- Repair or replace damaged flooring or carpeting.

 

- Repair any broken windows and their screens.

 

- Switch out any broken light fixtures.

- If your walls have a significant amount of scuffs

  and/or staining, you may want to consider painting

  if your home hasn't been painted in a while.
