Been planning to sell your house? Might be exciting at first but you’d be left alone stressed as you try to find the best value for your home. Moreover, continue reading below for selling guides for your real estate.
I think we all have our own mess at home. For the past year we collect and accumulate a ton of stuffs like for example grandma’s favorite china, training equipment we no longer use and many more. A client may become upset by seeing the number of things you have stored in your home. It is because clients always want to see simplicity and unconsciously they want to see if all of their stuff would fit in.
Try getting three boxes, one box for item that is need to be thrown, another one for keeping and storage, and the last box would contain items you want to sell. Start off with your room then move from one room to the other until you have sorted them all and left with just a few stuffs. Include your extra clothes and footwear inside your closets and drawers. Just leave a few things that are essential to live on until the house is sold.
Clear out personal items
Thus, buyers would not want to see your photos of your family hanging around your wall or perhaps your children’s work of art at the living room and also clear out the refrigerator door from any photos and notes. You can put them away inside your second box where you keep your stuff to be stored.
First thing you might want to clean is the wooden floor (if you have any) by polishing them, then cleaning the windows ’till they are nice and clean. The same procedure with the remaining things like the sliding doors, mirrors and other glassware. Later you proceed to the kitchen and clean your way out from the floor, countertops and sinks. Also ensure to clean out the kitchen drawers, shelves, and cupboards. Cleaning them out might get messier so try managing it.
The same applies to the garden, that you cut the grass, take off the undesired trees, and trim off the bushes that are overgrown. Some flowers would be nice adding them into your garden, you can also include some planters and even hanging baskets if you will. In case you have a balcony why not include them in your cleaning procedure and rearrange the furniture there.
You can move further to ensure the house is in good condition by hiring a home inspector. Through this you can be 100% sure that your home is in good condition and if not the inspector will remind you about the repairs that is needed to be done. Rarely other buyers would get their own home inspector to check out the house.
Hope these tips will help sell your real estate at a higher value and in no time.
