How to Prepare Your Home for Resale

If you are planning on selling your house, there are many ways you can tailor your home for the market.  Giving your home an edge over the other homes can be the quickest way to sell your home.  You need to understand that you are no longer tailoring your home for your needs but creating a space where others can easily envision themselves living.  To help you get that “sold” sign in your front year, here are our top tips for selling a home:

Neutral
Colorful walls can be an incredible way to express your style, but they not necessarily for everyone.  Neutral paint can be the safest choice when preparing to sell your house.  Home buyers can easily envision themselves living in a home that it is not weighed down by dramatic, bold colors. Keep the wall color simple for prospective buyers to picture themselves living there.

Minimalism
Clutter can also make a space look small and even unattractive.  It is crucial to make all of your rooms look as large as possible. You may even want to consider downsizing beds that are too big for bedrooms. By downsizing your furniture, you can clear the walkway and free up wall space that was previously blocked by your pieces. Remember that simplicity sells. If you plan to use your old furniture pieces, be sure to rent out a storage container while you are in the process of selling your home. It will allow you to fix the room’s furniture placement to your liking without having to get rid of it forever.

Kitchen + Bathrooms
Renovations may be costly up front, but they can also help increase your home’s value. If you are looking to get more for your home, you will need to target your kitchen and bathrooms. Studies show that these two rooms in a house are the most critical areas to potential buyers. If you have room in your budget, try to fix them up a bit before you put your home on the market. That being said, you want to make sure you see a return-on-investment. Only invest in areas that are important and need attention.

Move-in Ready
Some buyers will want a move-in ready home. Experts recommend not to leave unfinished projects for prospective buyers.  Unfinished areas or projects half started can turn away many potential buyers.  Put yourself in their shoes; you may not want to move into a room with unfinished work. Give buyers the opportunity to be able to move in and settle down in their new home.  When you leave projects, your home will quickly be disregarded as a home with too much work and money.

In conclusion, prioritize your projects, try to invest wisely, and analyze your return-on -nvestment.  Your home is already an investment in which you have an opportunity to make money.  Remember to try not to stress but be exciting moving into these projects.
