Put a For Sale sign in the front yard, and you may be surprised to get one or more offers the next day. The real estate market is hot, so if you want to sell your home, you can expect it to go quickly, especially if you prepare it to sell.
First, call Navarre Real Estate Source so a Realtor can help you with the listing.
After that, you need to get busy with the decluttering process and staging your home so it looks its best. Look around at every surface area. Do you have stacks of magazines or junk mail that need to be thrown out? How about collectibles or excessive decorative items. What you think is beautiful may not look that way to a prospective buyer. Pack all you precious items away and store them in a storage unit if necessary.
The same goes if you have furniture everywhere, especially if you have pieces of well-loved furniture that is past its prime. Extra furniture may need to be put in storage, also. A potential buyer wants to see how spacious your home is and how their items will fit in.
Check to see that everything is in good repair and clean. Look for burned out light bulbs, doors that don’t close correctly, broken toilet seats or other minor things you can easily repair. Make sure to get rid of all the dust bunnies hiding under furniture.
A fresh coat of interior paint can help immensely, along with clean carpets and, especially, clean bathrooms.
Once the inside is fresh and clean, head outdoors to trim bushes, pull weeds and mow the lawn. A couple of flower pots on the porch or hanging baskets will welcome potential buyers to your home.
You want your home to be the best looking one available in your neighborhood and selling quickly is your goal. With your help and the help of your Navarre Real Estate Source Realtor, your home will soon have a SOLD sign in the front yard.
