While it’s not a feat that can be done in a day, you don’t need to feel overwhelmed – coming up with a plan will allow you to make the move smooth and stress-free! To make it even easier, we’ve put together a guide to use as your starting point. Here are several tips and tricks to help you plan.
Ensure Appliances Are Functioning Properly
Having appliances included when selling your house – especially appliances in tip-top working condition – are a huge selling point. Alternatively, attempting to sell a house with appliances that aren’t working can be challenging. Test your appliances to make sure everything is functioning as it should.
Declutter Your Belongings
Decluttering is beneficial in so many ways. Not only is it therapeutic to lighten the load of belongings that have undoubtedly built up over the years, but it can make your move that much easier when you do downsize. Plus, it will make your home more desirable to potential buyers if you plan to have an open house.
Prioritize Curb Appeal
Don’t forget about the outside of your home! This is the first thing potential buyers will see, you’ll want it to exude curb appeal, so prepare by handling any external fixes needed. It’s a great time to tackle any to-do items you may have been putting off, such as repairing shutters, applying a fresh coat of paint, or cleaning up the yard and landscaping.
Small Updates Can Increase Value
If you are planning to move in the near future, it’s best not to put a ton of money into the home you are about to sell. That said, making smaller, inexpensive upgrades can be a wonderful way to increase value in your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers. Even something as minor as new hardware will show that a little can go a long way!
Take Professional Photos
There’s no better way to show off what a beautiful home you have than with high-quality interior and exterior photos! Have a knack for photography? Test your hand at taking the photos yourself for a fun side project! If you’re unsure, leave it to the professionals to photograph your home in the best possible way.
