With a few minor repairs and some elbow grease, your home is sure to impress prospective buyers. Try following tips to help sell your home quickly, at the best possible price:

  1. First impressions matter. A first impression is always important. A well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and a clutter-free porch welcome visitors. So does a freshly painted-or at least freshly scrubbed- front door. If it's autumn, rake the leaves. If it's winter, shovel the walkways. Make sure your house dazzles viewers before they even step into it.
  2. Invest now for dividends later. Prospects prefer to see how spectacular your home really looks than hear about how great it could look with a little work. Consider minor renovations, like a new coat of paint or fresh wallpaper, to add charm and value to your property.
  3. Show care. Show that your house is well maintained. Burned-out bulbs, leaky faucets, and discolored sinks suggest that you haven't kept your house in good condition. Prospect will also remember sticky cabinets or closet doors. Don't let little problems detract from what's right in your home. A little effort on your part can smooth the way towards a closing.
  4. Think safety. Overtime, homeowners learn to live with all kinds of self-set booby traps: think roller skates on the stairs, exposed extension cords, slippery throw rugs and low-hanging overhead lights. Uninitiated visitors aren't so savvy and may hurt themselves. Make sure to accident proof your residence.
  5. Clear space. Potential buyers are looking for more than just a comfortable living space; they want for storage space, too. Make sure your attic and basement are clean and uncluttered, and organize your closets. The more organized a closet is, the larger it appears.
  6. Make your kitchen and bathrooms sparkle. Kitchens and bathrooms ultimately sell homes, so let them shine. Check for and repair damaged or unsightly caulking in the tubs and showers. For added allure, display your best towels, mats and shower curtains.
  7. Create the bedroom of their dreams. Show the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. Colorful bedspreads and fresh curtains are a must. Get rid of excess furniture that adds clutter.
  8. Let there be light. Let the sun shine in during the day. Pull back your curtains and drapes so buyers can see how bright and cheerful your home is. At night, turn on all your lights, both inside and outside. Lights add color and warmth, and make visitors feels welcome.
