Are You Ready To Sell Your Home? Real Estate Professional Craig Summers Gives Advice

When it’s time to sell your [Profile.profile] home you want to make sure that everything is taken care of that may cause a problem during the process. Here is a list of the inexpensive things you can do to help make your home more appealing to buyers without breaking the bank.

Curb appeal: this is a crucial area because you have to give buyers a reason to get out of their car and see your home instead of every other seller. The most important thing you can do here is keep the grass cut, tree limbs pruned and bushes trimmed. First impressions, as with people, are important.
Mailbox: believe it or not this is an important, yet often overlooked area. If your mailbox is on its last leg take the time to paint it or, if needed, replace it. It can take away from the whole look of the home’s front.
Plant some flowers: this does wonders for curb appeal. A few annuals and even some colored mulch enhances the front and attracts the eye of buyers.
Paine the front door: if your door is older and especially if it’s wooden then a fresh coat of paint will bring it back to life. If it is stained then take a few hours and revive it with a little sanding and a new coat of stain. It shows buyers that you take pride in your home’s appearance.
De-clutter inside: you want buyers to see the size of your rooms and not how many boxes haven’t made it to storage. Buyers are sizing rooms to see how their furniture will fit. Don’t take away from it with clutter.
Control pets: if you have animals make arrangements to keep them in their kennel while you are away. Your chihuahua may be cute, but to someone scared of dogs it might as well be Cujo on steroids. And don’t lock them up in a room in the home. It not only keeps that room from being seen but it causes a lot of annoying noise while buyers are in the home.
