Sell Your Home in 4 Easy Steps...Step 1
Are you ready to sell your home? If, after hours of thinking, wrestling, and making copious pro/con lists, you’ve decided to put your home on the market, first of all, congratulations!
Deciding to sell is often the hardest part. So what’s next? I’m so glad you asked! I’m here to offer a bit of friendly guidance. Because while selling your home is a big deal, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. To help you stay calm, cool, and collected, I’ve put together a series of emails that will help you sell in four easy steps.
First up? Let’s get your home ready for the market.
If you’re like most sellers, you want to wow prospective buyers, but you don’t want to break the bank. I’ve got good news — getting your home ready to sell doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag.
If you’ve got a few open weekends and a can-do spirit, you can knock out these few upgrades in no time.
A word of caution: Before you spend one penny on home improvements, talk with a realtor (ehhh hemmm) familiar with your market. They have extensive knowledge of in-demand upgrades that’ll help you get top dollar in your specific neighborhood.
Paint the walls and trim. Smudgy walls and dingy trim are so out. Refresh both with calming, neutral colors that appeal to a wide range of tastes and preferences. If time is short, start with the living room and kitchen and then work your way to the bedrooms.
Refresh the yard. Fresh mulch, colorful annuals, and a couple of planting urns for the entryway make stellar curb appeal a cinch.
Clean, declutter, and repeat. There is nothing worse than a listing that’s dirty. Deep clean and declutter before your home hits the market. Later, when it’s time for a showing, it’ll just take a quick wipe-down to straighten up.
