Get Ready To Sell

Depending on the time of year you will need to prepare your home so those homebuyers will simply fall in love.

Curb appeal is important and I am sure when you bought this home it looked wonderful. So it needs to look wonderful now. Tidy up the Yard...you know, make it look really nice.

Have a look around the foundation, steps, walkway, patio, are there any repairs needed to look its best. Does it need a power wash to look bright and shining? Don't forget to power wash the driveway and garage floors...those oil stains are a no-no. Check gutters and downspouts; Did you have fires in the fireplace this year, if so clean the chimney

Make sure your windows are clean..in side and out...makes a big difference. 

If you are one of us that hates house cleaning and you can tell, hirer a cleaning service...great idea...don't forget to keep it up while the house is on the market..

Oh, don't forget to declutter..get rid of items you will not be taking. Start packing photos nick nacks and while your at it, any walls that could do with a fresh coat of pain..white or beige is always a good color. 

Shampoo the rugs...no one wants to see spills, dog and cat stuff and oh the smell...make sure there are no animal odors in the house...that is fatal.
