Home Preparation

PREP TO SELL

This is such a pivotal stage of the selling process. Just know that our knowledgeable agents at Sands Realty know just the right touches you will need to make to sell your home at the listing price. Let’s walk you through some steps to take before your first buyer walkthrough.

SET THE STAGE

Staging your home is a crucial step in the prep-to-sell process. You have to switch perspectives and think in the way of the buyer and the way a new home builder thinks of a home as a beautiful product. Here are a few top tips from our skilled pros

LESS PERSONAL TOUCHES

Store away all family photos, heirlooms and personal items. Prospective buyers want to picture their own lives in their new personal space. Opt for renting a storage space over stuffing closets.

PUNCH UP THE CURB APPEAL

First impressions are everything, so be sure your exterior siding is power-washed, the yard and landscaping is well-kept and the front door is impeccably painted and polished.

ELIMINATE CLUTTER

Clutter isn’t attractive, so get rid of any piles of clutter on countertops and sitting in corners of your floor space. And don’t forget to make sure storage spaces are as organized as possible (closets, cabinets, garage and attic).

GIVE IT A MEAN CLEAN

Your house will need a major upheaval that rivals the likes of a good spring cleaning. Wipe down windows, dust (don’t forget baseboards, fan blades and light fixtures), sweep and vacuum, professionally clean carpets and upholstery if needed (and replace worn rugs or old carpet), and remember details like changing the air conditioning filter and wiping down dusty vents.

NEUTRALIZE YOUR WALLS

Clutter isn’t attractive, so get rid of any piles of clutter on countertops and sitting in corners of your floor space. And don’t forget to make sure storage spaces are as organized as possible (closets, cabinets, garage and attic).

MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH MINOR REPAIRS

The differences are in the details, and small home improvements could mean a quicker close and a higher selling price. Consider these few repairs:

  • Patch up and paint over any holes in the walls
  • Trade out dark, drab curtains, bedspreads, towels and rugs for light and airy features
  • Fix any leaky faucets
  • Re-caulk sinks, tubs and showers; remove any rust or stains
  • If its broken, fix it – e.g. fence or screen, chipped tile, etc.
