Get the Biggest Bang for Your Buck when Selling Your Home

Monday, October 26, 2015 | 8:04 pm

When you are getting ready to sell your home, there are many emotions swirling in your head. It can be hard to remember that now is the time to keep up with your investment by sprucing up your home.

You will not get a second chance to make a first impression. Keep your yard clutter free, keep your grass mowed, and your patio furniture clean. Plant some flowers or make a nice potted arrangement. We’re all told not to judge a book by its cover but many people judge a home by its curb appeal. One inexpensive thing you can do is paint your front door. A clean front door offers the promise of its equal inside.

On the outside of your house or mailbox you can put up new numbers. Touch up cracks in the paint and wash your windows and screens. Give the appearance of newness whenever possible.

Walk around as if you were the buyer, fix anything broken or dirty that you find. This includes washing the garage floor, patching tears in window screens and clearing clutter.

Clean your kitchens and bathrooms until they shine. These two key areas of the home are prone to dirt and damage. Clean grout and tile and re-grout if needed. Replace your shower curtain and hang fresh towels on the racks.

Finally, empty trash cans and make sure your closets are organized and clutter free to make them appear larger. Consider getting a second opinion, on how to make your home shine.
