Selling your home can seem overwhelming if you don’t know where to start when it comes to getting your home ready for listing and showing. However, selling your home doesn’t have to be a major headache, and it doesn’t even have to be expensive. Here are three ways you can quickly, inexpensively and easily get your home in tip-top shape before you sell:
Declutter your home. This should be the number one priority of any seller, and has two purposes. First, it makes your home appear more spacious and it also removes the personal touches you’ve made to your home over the years that can pose an emotional obstacle for buyers. Remove excess furniture and personal items before listing your home, and consider renting a storage locker to keep all of these items safe.
Rearrange your furniture. Your real estate agent can help you stage your home to make it as appealing as possible to buyers and create a fresh, new look.
Touch up with paint. Using colour to your advantage with a quick coat of paint can do so many great things for your home. It can warm, cool, cover, clean-up or brighten, depending on what each room needs. This is easily one of the cheapest and quickest ways to refresh your home and increase its value before selling.
