The goal of every home seller is to sell his or her home as efficiently as possible for the highest price. Every seller should clean and stage their home for potential buyers, the following are projects that should be completed before you put your home on the market. If it’s broke, fix it - This is crucial in the selling process. Repair the broken cabinet or loose railing before buyers view your home. Damage detracts from your home and may make buyers question what else you have not maintained. Shades of grey - Interior paint is inexpensive and revitalizes a space. Covering scratches or wear and tear with fresh neutral paint is aesthetically pleasing and even creates that ‘new home’ look and smell! Floored! - Transform your space by refinishing wood floors, updating tile or professionally cleaning any carpeting. First impressions - Consider replacing your front door, as this is an investment that often pays for itself in the final price of your home. Subtle accents - Fixtures and hardware, such as cabinet knobs, faucets, light fixtures and door handles can be relatively inexpensive and done without a professional. Clear view - Upgrading old windows throughout a home makes a big difference both inside and out. Keep up the façade - Garage doors often account for a large percentage of a home’s front façade. Similar to the front door, homeowners who upgrade or update their garage doors, may see a good return on their investment.
