How to Get the Most Money Out of Your Home

As a seller, there are many things to put into consideration to ensure you are getting the most money for your home. The more traffic you accumulate through your home, the higher chance that perfect buyer will see it. Here is a list of key topics to consider as a seller to get the most money out of your home.

Creating Curb Appeal

A first impression of your home will be a lasting impression.  If you have great curb appeal, it will ensure you are getting the best price for your home. During the spring and summer months make sure to manicure your flower beds and keep your lawn neat. Bright and colorful flowers are also very inviting and appealing. During the fall and winter months make sure the fall leaves are cleaned up and the snow is freshly shoveled.

Make Repairs

  • Paint is the cheapest investment you can make in attracting potential buyers and getting the most money out of your home. Paint the walls that are outdated, dirty, or unattractive.
  • Make sure your appliances are in great working order. Buyers like new appliances and replacing your old ones can attract many potential buyers.
  • Small problems can seem like big issues to buyers. Fix any plumbing issues you may have and repair small things, like your cabinet doors.

Stage Your Home

A professional stager can arrange your furniture and other items in your home to create more appeal to the potential buyer. Rearranging or removing furniture can completely transform your home. This is one of the most important places to invest your money if you cannot do it yourself. If you have an eye for detail, then you can do this on your own.

Price it Right

A realtor will give you information regarding comparable homes in your area and their list/sell price. They will let you know how your home compares to other in your vicinity; provide you with the average sell price, and how many days’ homes in your area were on the market. This information will give you a better idea of what to list your home for and how long to expect it to be on the market.
