Selling a home begins long before you stick that "For Sale" sign in the front yard, especially if you want to make good money on your sale. First, you've got to get your property in tip-top shape so you're sure to WOW some buyers. Here are some simple low-cost ways to ensure your home looks its best.
Start on the Outside
Do some landscaping
A little landscaping can go a long way! How does yours look? Are there low-hanging branches or overgrown bushes? Does the lawn need mowing or maybe seeding? Could your garden beds need mulching or some fresh flowers? If so, it's time to get to work!
Don't forget the outside
Next, take a good look at the outside of your home, paying attention to bigger details like the siding and the roof, as well as smaller things, like the garage door, the gutters, and any shutters. Don't forget walkways, too.
Make your porch welcoming
Welcome buyers into your home with a fresh coat of paint on your door, some new house numbers, and a bright welcome mat. A pot of flowers, if the season allows, is also a nice touch, as is a chair, if you've got the room.
Clean & Repair
Do Some Decoration
When it comes to decorating, you want to aim for a neutral look that allows buyers to appreciate your home without being overwhelmed by your style, personality, or your own life on display. Take some time to remove personalizations like bright colors, themes, and personal photos.
Let in the light
Bright lights and sunshine sell homes! If you've got sunny rooms, open those windows and let in the light. In rooms that see less sunlight, you might consider upping the wattage in your bulbs, or even adding additional light sources, like table lamps.
Add simple decor
Bright pops of color, like accent pillows, throw blankets, or vases, can add a nice touch to room. Just be careful not to go overboard when decorating—keep it simple and keep it neutral above all else!
