Are you getting ready to sell your home?
Did you know everything from the quality of a paint job to its cleanliness can affect the value and amount of time it’s on the market?
We’ve put together a list of things you must do before selling your home to increase the value and to help it sell fast!
1. Touch up the paint
Chipped paint and poor paint jobs on both the interior and exterior of a house can make or break the sale of your home. We encourage all home sellers to hire a professional painter in Houston to apply a fresh coat before putting the home up for sale.
If you’re looking to re-paint the home before selling, consider the paint colors that can significantly boost the value of your home even more, provided by CBS here.
2. Clean your home – spotless!
Someone who might have been interested in your home from the MLS or Zillow listing can instantly get turned off when they walk into a messy home.
When putting your home up for sell, do a deep cleaning of your entire home.
If you’re still living in your home while trying to sell, clean each and every time there is a showing.
But we know, it’s easier said than done! If you don’t have the time, hire a house cleaner near you to help keep your home clean.
3. Power wash the premises
The outside of a home is the first thing people see – so make sure it looks nice!
Is there grease on the driveway? Dirt built up on the sidewalks or side of home?
A professional power washing company can remove the unwanted buildup from the premises of your home to improve the overall appearance.
4. Remove any clutter
If you’re still living in the home during the selling process, try keeping only the basics in your house. This might include tables, chairs, couches, beds, and basic decorations.
Be sure to remove everything that isn’t necessary such as toys, storage containers, and large amounts of clothes in the closet. Basically, anything that could look like clutter, remove it! This is another thing a professional house cleaner can help you with.
5. Repair any damages
If you have any holes or cracks in the walls, broken garage doors, or anything that doesn’t work, we highly encourage you to fix it. Even minor damages will turn away a potential buyer faster than you might think.
6. Stage your home
According to The Balance, staging a home doesn’t only help it sell faster, but the seller generally makes 7 to 10 percent more on the home!
If you don’t have the furniture to stage your home, such as tables, chairs, a couch, and décor, consider finding a place to rent staging furniture.
