Here are items you can do that cost you nothing, but bring value to the way buyers view your home:
1.) Curb Appeal,
freshen up the look of the house by weeding, raking, coiling up the
hoses, pick up toys and put away tools. Make sure there are no signs of
pests; such as, hornet and bee nests, mice and bird droppings. Power
wash any mildew that accumulated over the cold damp winter months.
2.) Pack, Pack, and then when you think you've packed enough, pack some more!
Pack up anything you can live without for the next couple of months
(including any furniture other than the essentials). You are moving
after all, right? This helps show off the storage, square footage and
architectural details of the house.
3.) Clean, Clean, and Clean some more!
Once you've packed and edited out any excess furniture, you will find
dirt you never knew you had. Now it is time to clean your home so you
can eat off the floors! Most importantly, kitchens and bathrooms. But
don't forget the inside of appliances, carpets, curtains, pillows and
upholstery. All these fabrics and places bring the smells of your life
into the home. Negative smells are a huge turnoff to buyers (and that
includes many candles, sprays and cleaning agents). Weather permitting,
open windows and air out the house. Fresh air is highly encouraged!
4.) Repair and finish any projects
that you have started! A well maintained home has great value to
buyers. When buyers see unfinished projects and a lack of maintenance,
they become concerned and either take money off the offer or move on to the next place.
5.) Clean out light fixtures & put the highest wattage bulb into them, allowed by the manufacturer. This will lighten and brighten your home making it feel cleaner and larger.
6.) Clean the inside and outside of all your windows. Again, this brings in light and brightens up your home. It will make the home feel larger and there is value in square footage!
7.) Remove heavy layers of custom draperies.
I know you may have spent a lot of money on those custom draperies, but
there are several reasons to remove them. First and foremost, it helps
make the home feel lighter and brighter. But more importantly, custom
draperies tend to be taste specific.
8.) Remove any wallpaper and border.
Yes, seriously! This is one of the biggest objections buyers have.
So, take that objection away and remove it. It'll go far to help your
home appeal to a much greater pool of buyers.
