8 Tips For Preparing Your Home For Sale

Susan Balfour's Tips:
Preparing Your Home for Sale

First Impression is So Important
Curb appeal is vital. Your lawn should be trimmed, sidewalks swept, frontdoor clean and doorbell working.

Painting for a better sale
A minor investment in paint will pay dividens in the form of a better price and/or quicker sale.

Here comes the sun!
Open the curtains and clean the windows soa prospect can see how bright and cheerful your house is. Dark, dreary rooms are not appealing to home buyers.

Don't be a drip!
Fix leaky faucets. Dripping water suggests faulty plumbing and major repair bills. Discolored, rust-stained sinks are also warning signs - they should be clean and sparkling.

Little things mean a lot
Loose doorknobs or cabinet pulls, sticking doors and drawers, wobbly hinges, stuck windows - are negative factors. Check and repair all these minor flaws.

Safety first
Keep stairways and corridors absolutely clear. Clutter is unnatractive and can cause accidents.

Bathrooms sell homes
Make bathrooms sparkle. Clean sinks and toilets and repair any damaged or discolored caulking.

From top to bottom
Let prospects see the full value of your basement, attic, garage and closets by removing junk and cartons. rent a short-term storage space if necessary.
