5 Things to do Before You Sell Your Home
- Clean. Clean.Clean.- A tidy home is a loved home. Wipe fingerprints and other smudges from glass, mirrors and other shiny surfaces. Wax and polish your hardwood and tile floors and vacuum your carpets often. Keep your oven, stove and kitchen free of clutter.
- Clean up your home's exterior- Make sure your landscape is well maintained to increase curb appeal. A more conservative yard is often a better showcase for your home, so be generous with your trimming and pruning. Pare down bushes and dress that block windows. Repair minor asphalt and walkway cracks, if necessary. If your home has gutters on the roof, clean and clear them frequently.
- Let there be light- Natural light is the best light to cast your home in. Replace faded and heavy curtains with sheer ones or install Venetian blinds. Opening the shades when showing your house will also make your home seem larger. Make sure darker rooms are well lit.
- Add a few little touches- Replace worn or outdated doorknobs, cabinet handles and light switches. Buy new towels for the bathroom but don't use them. Place flowers in windows that are walked by often to add a cheerful, homey touch.
