There are a million and one details to get in order when the time come to sell your home, and having the help of a qualified Idaho REALTOR® will prove invaluable, but beyond their assistance there are a few things homeowners themselves to avoid in order to help the sale go smoothly.
Take care of dead patches and be sure to keep on top of cutting the yard during the sales process. Pull weeds and maybe even add just a few potted flowers to spruce things up a bit.
Touch Up The Paint
A can of paint can go a long way! If there are damage spots go ahead and give them a once over. Patch any minor holes as well. If it’s within budget don’t be afraid to take this time to even consider painting a room or taking care of any exterior paint issues as well.
Keep It Clean
Clean away cobwebs, sweep up leaves, and consider even having the outside of your house pressure washed. It’s a great idea to have the windows cleaned as well. Living in your home day to day you often don’t realize how grimy the outside of your house can get; giving it a good wash is almost like a new coat of paint.
Don’t Go Overboard
De-cluttering is one of the most important things and it’s usually the easiest to do. You don’t have to remodel the entire house or put in a new deck to add value to your home and make it more saleable, so focus on the little things. Make your home inviting and showcase all the reasons you’ve loved it over the time you’ve been there and your agent will do the rest!
