A few things to consider before selling….

We get it, it is a sellers’ market, but don’t be fooled! Before putting your house in the market here are a few things to consider not only to attract more buyers, but to make this process least stressful for you and your family.
Structural and mechanical

Let’s be real, buyers are looking at big-ticket items like the age and condition of the roof, air conditioning and heating systems, water heater, electrical panel and pipes.
You’ll want to ensure that these items are in good condition
or you might seriously need to consider replacing them as these items could factor into the kind of financing the buyer is able to obtain as well aImage result for house paintings insurability of the property.

Exterior

How does the exterior of your home look? Is there any wood rot? When was the last time it was painted? Are there any stucco cracks that need attention? First impressions start from the outside, and the exterior will show up in photos across a multitude of websites.

Landscaping

How’s your front and back yard doing?  Are the plantings overgrown, worn and wilted? What about the ground cover? Are the planting beds in need of some fresh mulch, pine straw, rock, etc.? Are there any overgrown tree limbs hanging over the house or blocking the home’s view? For a relatively inexpensive investment, you can transform how your exterior looks by trimming back and freshening things up with new plants and landscaping.

Bathrooms

Simple and clean rules the day. Sprucing up your bathrooms to sell can be as simple as having the grout on the existing tile steam cleaned or re-grouting where needed. Caulking, new plumbing and light fixtures along with mirrors can create value.

Flooring:
If you can only afford to make the investment in one significant part of your home, consider updating the flooring. There are a ton of low-cost options to choose from that include wood plank tiles and highly upgraded laminate flooring — think wide plank, light colored or hand-scraped styles.


Hope this helps!
