Everything You Need to Know About Getting Your Home Market Ready

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a home that sells quickly and one that takes a lot longer to attract the attention of buyers? A range of responses could answer this question including the price point, the location, the value of the property, the amenities, and the condition of the home. However, there are certainly things you can do to bring up the value of your home and get it market ready so you can confidently compete with other sellers. San Antonio Movers suggest the following to make your home superior to all the rest.

Purge Away         

The first step to making your home sale-ready is to get rid of all of the stuff you have collected over the years. Often, people don’t realize just how much unwanted possessions they have until they are diligent about getting rid of it all. If you find yourself questioning whether or not to keep something, you are most likely better off throwing it out.

It may be helpful to enlist the help of family members or friends to get a second opinion on difficult items. Having someone else confirm your thoughts of trashing or keeping could potentially speed up the process. Additionally, you may also consider a yard sale where you can rid your home of unwanted clutter and make some money doing it.

Prioritize Remodels

Are you faced with some remodeling that needs to take place? If so, this should be your number one priority. Putting some money and time into renovating your bathrooms, kitchen, or laundry room could potentially be the selling point for buyers. Perhaps you decide to do some renovations such as new carpet, kitchen cabinets, or upgrade from a linoleum floor to a wood floor.

Whatever remodeling projects you desire to complete before the move, prioritize them in order of importance so they can be completed before the time comes to show your home. The more up-to-date and well maintained a home looks, the more competitive it will be on the vast real estate market.

Capture Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is extremely important especially when the time comes to sell your home. Buyers will often begin making assumptions about the condition of a home the minute they pull up and begin examining the exterior. Taking the time to elevate your home’s initial appearance can make a significant difference in the first impression department.

Completing some basic landscape, adding some flowers, refinishing your front door and adding a wreath, or simply cleaning up the yard are all fantastic ways to enhance the curb appeal your home has.

Clean Like Mad

Cleaning is one of the most crucial steps to take leading up to showing your home. Buyers don’t want to see clothing on the floor, water spots in the bathtub, and grease on the kitchen stove. Setting aside the time to clean and polish your home can do wonders when buyers come for a first look. Even if you haven’t had a chance to finish all of your desired remodeling projects, having a clean home will automatically elevate the look of the interior.

San Antonio Movers are excited to begin working with you and your family to facilitate a smooth and low-stress move. Getting your home ready to sell will hopefully be easier through implementation of these simple suggestions!
