Ready to sell?

If you’re thinking about putting your home on the market, here are the basics to make sure you get top dollar:

  • Clean up: It goes without saying that you want your home to look it’s best and that means as spotless as possible
  • Fresh coat of paint: Keep the color neutral so as not to overwhelm would-be buyers
  • Repair: Buyers are wary about home maintenance so make sure all is in good working order
  • Declutter: Remove personal items and artifacts to help the buyer visualize the home as “theirs”
  • Update the kitchen; If you’re going to update any area, start with the kitchen, which is considered the focal point of a home
  • Curb appeal: The first thing buyers see will the outside of your home and yard as they pull up so make sure it looks as inviting as possible
  • Staging: 73 percent of staged home sell for over their asking price so this might be a worthwhile investment
