My friend who works at Santa Monica Real Estate give me some advice about selling the house. He said that if you are planning to sell your house sometime in the year, you don’t have to worry about the details needed in preparing it to go on the market. It is not luck that your home sell fast and bring top dollar. You should plan and spruce up your home professionally to make it an irresistible and marketable home. Here are the steps you should follow to make your home have a great impression to potential buyers.

Deep Clean and declutter

Cleaning and cluttering may sound obvious but they should not be overstated. You first need to do away with the unwanted and unnecessary items in the house before cleaning. Take your time to deep clean your house paying special attention to bathrooms, kitchens and windows. After that, ensure the cabinets, drawers and closets are properly organized. This will help your house be more appealing to potential buyers.

Make DIY repairs

Fix small damages on your house before you show it for the first time. Here are some of the damages you can do yourself.

  • Repair or freshen up of grout.
  • Fixing broken or cracked windows.
  • Replacing damaged window screens.
  • Replacing burned-out light bulbs.
  • Repairing and repainting walls with a pleasing color.
  • Fixing leaking faucets and running toilets.

Go for curb and appeal

The first impression usually may decide the course. You need therefore to make a potential buyer more attracted from the outside and have the anxiety to see the inside of your house. You therefore extend your cleaning to the outside. You should apply new mulch to your yard to curb appeal. Repairs broken downspouts, gutters and concrete areas. Trim bushes, trees and shrubs to ensure they won’t touch your roof or roof.

After these steps, you will have a beautiful and welcoming house inside and outside. This will only require moderate effort from you.
