Evaluate Your Home
You know what your home looks like – and whether you love it or hate it, it’s yours. In order to sell your home effectively, it’s important to put yourself in the buyer’s shoes and imagine viewing the home you are selling through their eyes.
First, it’s a good idea to drive around the block and imagine you are looking to buy a house in the neighborhood. What will a prospective buyer see for the first time?
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
–Does the home you’re selling need power washing or painting?
–Is the driveway in need of repair?
–Is the landscaping appealing, or does the lawn look like it hasn’t been mowed in weeks?
After you evaluate the outside, it’s time to go in. Tour your house like it’s the first time you’re seeing it. Be sure to make notes of things that potential buyers might point out, such as chipped paint or cabinet hinges that need oiling.
Selling your New Jersey or Pennsylvania home is a great opportunity to clean out the junk you’ve been collecting for years. But here’s a trick – start removing the clutter before you put your home on the market. When your experienced real estate agent shows your house to prospective buyers, keep in mind that they will be opening every closet and checking every nook and cranny.
Not ready to go through everything just yet? Put things you don’t use every day in boxes and store in an attic, basement, garage, or somewhere out of sight. Removing clutter will automatically make any room appear bigger – which is important when showing your house. Also, a buyer wants to walk through the home you’re selling and imagine themselves, and their things, in it. So, make sure you remove any unnecessary belongings.
After you’ve removed any clutter, it’s time to clean. And not just a light dusting. If you can, hire a professional to come in and do a deep clean. If not, that’s okay too. Just make sure that the carpets are shampooed, floors are shined, bathrooms are spotless, and there are no signs of dust anywhere. Even wipe down the walls. Believe me, they’re dirtier than you think.
