De-clutter: Before listing your home, it’s very important to sort and get rid of anything you’ve accumulated in the time you’ve been in your home and no longer need. Donating items or having a garage sale can really help you downsize before your future move as well as create an open feel and flow to your home for potential buyers.
Update floors: One of the biggest returns on investment when fixing up a home is in flooring. Updating a floor or two could bring you more money for your home as well as a quicker sale.
Update kitchen & baths: Kitchen and bathrooms are rooms that can heavily influence how many buyers feel about a home. While a full renovation may not be possible, simple updates like fresh, neutral paint colors or a new shower curtain can increase overall appeal and value.
Enhance curb appeal: The outside of your home is the first impression buyers will experience, so having great curb appeal is critical. Cleaning up the yard, pruning shrubbery, planting some flowers or even painting your front door could make a huge difference between a potential buyer just driving by your home or requesting a showing.
Fix anything in question: Carefully inspect your home for anything that potential buyers could notice and take issue with. Addressing any issues now could save on deeper questions in the future.
