How to Prepare Your Home for Resale

Last updated 4 years ago

It can be difficult to say goodbye to your home, especially if you’ve had the same mailing address for quite a few years. Despite the emotional toll of selling your home, there are also the physical demands of getting your home ready for resale. A well-polished house appeals to more buyers and will sell faster and possibly even for a higher price, so the more time you invest in preparing your home, the more it will pay off when the paperwork is finalized and you hand over the keys. Here are a few ways you can get your home ready after you decide to put it on the market. 

Maximize the Curb Appeal

Before potential homebuyers start looking at your house, take as much time as necessary to maximize its exterior appeal. Also referred to as “curb appeal,” the exterior appeal of your home is how attractive it looks from the outside. Keep the lawn edged and cut, and trim any hedges or trees in the front yard. You should also think about hiring a painting service to apply a fresh coat of paint to the front door, preferably in a bold color that will make your home stand out.

Freshen Up the Interior

After the exterior is clean and tidy, move on to the interior of your home. Start by giving every room in the house a thorough cleaning. Get rid of any clutter and organize to the best of your ability. This alone will make your house appear bigger and brighter. A window cleaning company can make sure that every window in the home is clean. If you hire a painting service to apply fresh paint to the front door, have them repaint any rooms in your home that look faded or out of style.
