Selling Your Home? Here Are Some Tips For You!

  1. Clear The Clutter!
  • Before putting your home on the market, clear the clutter that has been accumulating over the years. Tackle one room at a time and divide your items into three piles: keep, donate and toss!
  1. Get Packing!
  • Although you won’t want to pack everything right away, it helps to start boxing up some items that you know you want to keep but won’t be needing for a while, some of these items may include seasonal belongings, such as sports equipment or seasonal clothing! You should also consider packing up some sentimental and valuable items, this will prevent your valuables from being damaged. The less items in your home, the easier it will make it for a potential buyer to see themselves living in your home!
  1. Research The Local Market
  • Knowing how much the homes in your neighbourhood are selling for and how long they’ve stayed on the market can help you gauge your homes value and estimate a time frame for the sale.
  1. Repair & Improve
  • Boost your homes curb appeal by doing minor repairs and improvements to both the inside and outside of your home. Tackle necessary repairs, such as painting, replacing light fixtures and replacing appliances that are damaged or out of date. And, of course don’t forget to ensure your home is clean!
  1. Be Realistic
  • Having realistic expectations for selling your home will help to relieve some of the stress of selling.
