If you are considering selling your home in the Nashville area now is a great time to do so. There are buyers waiting for your home!
Sellers are taking advantage and cashing in the equity in their home and transitioning to new homes while mortgage rates are still low.
If you are considering putting your house on the market listed below are three tips that will help you get your home prepared to sell.
1. Declutter- Decluttering is one of the first tips that potential home sellers will be advised on. Whether you are preparing to sell within the next 90 days or 6 months this is
Preparing Your Home For Sale
something you can start today. If you have been in your home for a number of years you may be amazed by all of the things that have accumulated in that time. Packed garages, attics, closets, and counter tops could turn off potential buyers who will find a hard time envision themselves in a home packed to the brim. Some of the ways you could clear out those items is by having a garage sale, giving items away to local charities, or even renting a small storage short term use.
2. Minor Repair-Just like anything else over time a home will begin to show signs of “wear and tear”. It may be a bathroom faucet that drips, a door that sticks, a window screen that needs to be replaced, or a doorbell that doesn’t ring. Take to time to get those things you are aware of fixed before listing your home. Having a home in good repair will mean a lot to a prospective home buyer and will mostly likely produce a more reasonable offer than a home in disarray.
3. Improve Curb appeal- We have all heard how important first impressions are. Many times buyers are encouraged to drive by homes that may be of interest before even scheduling a showing to view the inside. Something as simple as an un-manicured lawn may sway your buyers to move on to the next property. Eliminate weeds and overgrown shrubbery. Repair or replace a worn or damaged mailbox. Touch up areas with chip or missing paint. Replace damaged or missing shutters.
