1.THINK mailbox! That is where your home’s showing to potential buyers really begins! How does the driveway or sidewalk in front of your home look? A simple pressure wash along with fresh mulch and plantings can work wonders to improve the curb appeal of your property. This simple step not only adds attractive value but also makes a statement, from the onset, that this home has been cared for.
2. WHILE you have the pressure washer out, go ahead and give the entire outside of your home a good cleaning! Get everyone involved and make it an event, especially if it’s in the warmer weather months. A freshly cleaned exterior has one of the greatest returns for minimal investment. Make sure to scrub those windows as well!
3. GIVE the interior a thorough cleaning, too! Whether you decide to invest in a professional cleaning company or just good old fashioned elbow grease, a deep clean of the entire home works wonders! Don’t forget the baseboards, corners, and walls when wiping down and cleaning up. As an added bonus after the home is glistening, make sure to add a few air fresheners around the home at key points such as entry ways and bathrooms.
4. MINIMIZE the clutter! Clean off counter tops, pick up items from closet floors, and remove large furniture pieces and personal photos. Remember you want to showcase the space and not your stuff! Use your garage and cabinets to store the extra items until moving day so that your home shows well to prospective buyers. Decluttering gives the potential buyer the space to dream and visualize as their own!
5. REMOVE debris from around exterior air units and cut back any encroaching landscaping. Even better, call the professionals and have the unit serviced! A home’s appearance is key and having the main mechanical systems of the home in good working order is a must.
