Buying a home starts with looking at multiple different listings and seeing what homes stand out. If you are looking to prepare your home to sell, there are some areas to focus on that will attract the right buyers. Cleaning and home repairs may take some time, but hiring professionals to help clean will improve the quality of your home.
Before you sell, there are more steps to take than just listing the home online. Follow the tips in this blog to best prepare your home to sell.
1- Update Exterior Paint
The curb appeal of a home is important for future buyers. First impressions are essential when you are trying to sell a home because homebuyers will see the outside of the home and make judgments before learning anything else about the property.
Updating exterior paint around window sills, door trim, and siding will help your home look brand new. Fresh paint helps bring your home to the front of your land and elevate the look of any size of home.
2- Remove Clutter And Junk Around Your Home
When you prepare your home to sell you will remove clutter, unneeded items, and junk outside the home. Sierra Vista Maintenance offers junk removal services to help haul away old furniture and clean out your garage before you stage your home.
Removing old mattresses, yard waste, cardboard, and appliances while you are prepping to move will help you be able to stage your home to look professional for realtors and buyers. Sierra Vista can help make your home look tidy and take some stress off of you about hauling old items to your new home.
3- Maintain And Clean Your Solar Panels
For residences with solar panels, having them maintained and cleaned will ensure they work properly. Even if you have recently cleaned your panels, prepare your home to sell by scheduling a professional cleaning. Dirty solar panels can make your home look drab so by cleaning you increase your home value and get the energy ready for the next homeowner.
4- List With High-Quality Photos
Real estate listings are a saturated market, so having professional, high-quality, and bright photos of your home will help it catch the attention of buyers. Many people are looking online for homes before they see them in person, so well-lit photos of each room and the exterior yard will make the sale process go much faster. Use as much natural light as possible, make sure the floors and walls are clean, and use a higher-quality camera (if available).
5- Hire A Professional Pressure Washing Company
Depending on what time of the year you look to list your home, spring build-up and dirty hard water can cling to your siding or roof. Pressure washing will ensure that the home materials look the right color, are free of damage, and are clear of bird droppings or dirt.
Sierra Vista Maintenance offers pressure washing for many areas of your home. Driveways, walkways, roofs, windows, and more can be cleaned with pressure washing from a trained professional. Taking the time to remove built-up grime on your concrete areas is an easy way to increase the sell value of your home as well. Pressure washing will help maintain the concrete and home materials so they last for the next owner.
6- Stage The Home
After making repairs, cleaning, and listing your home, you will want to set it up to look straight out of a magazine. Even if your furniture is not normally arranged that way, setting up the home to look professional and cozy is an effective way to sell your home faster. Prepare your home to sell by ensuring furniture is clean, toys are put away, clutter is stored away, and decorative items are placed strategically.
