Preparing Your Home for Listing

Have you found your dream home in Lakes of Savannah, but need to put your existing home on the market? When selling your house, you will want to find economical ways to add value to your home. Making a great first impression can help bring in the offer you are hoping for. 

Here are a few tips to follow before opening your home to a future buyer.

Make it sparkle - Kick up your cleaning efforts to high gear. Everything needs to be cleaned from top to bottom and inside and out. Think sparkling!

De-clutter - Now is the perfect time clean out the closets and cabinets in order for buyers to see the storage potential of your home.  Go through closets, cabinets and attic space and donate items you haven’t have long forgotten about. Store miscellaneous items and seasonal clothing. Buyers want to envision the home with their personal touch.

Remove the animals - Just because we love our animals, doesn’t mean the buyer will. Put away food bowls, litter boxes and toys. Make sure you take your animal away from the house during showings.

Spruce up your floors - Steam clean carpets or consider replacing old carpet if it is non-repairable. Shine up your hardwood floors and refinish worn or damaged sections. 

Let the light shine - Provide as much natural light as possible by opening curtains or raising blinds. Turn on lights throughout the house and make sure any burned out bulbs are replaced.

Paint walls a neutral color - A simple coat of paint can transform outdated spaces and make all the difference! Find a popular neutral that will appeal to more buyers.
