Once you decided to sell there will be a lot you can do to determine how well your house will show
Preparing your home to be put on the market can be a daunting task. The prep work is usually rushed, complicated, and usually demands a ton of work. This is especially the case if you're like most sellers and prepare your home for sale a few weeks before putting it up for sale.
What buyers see from the curb
Don't forget to plant bulbs in September/October, so your buyers can see a beautiful flower garden when they visit your home in the spring. Many homeowners focus so much on the inside of the home that they forget that the yard will be the first thing that potential buyers will see when they pull up. A green, clean-cut lawn, and attractive plants will go a long way towards convincing potential buyers that your house is the right house for them.
Your "honey-do" list
Tackle your "to-do" list by planning ahead and hiring contractors in the off-season. Not only will you save a few dollars, but they won't likely be in as big a rush, and they'll do a far better job for you. Painters are usually extremely busy in the summer so negotiating a painting contract in the winter months will allow you to get your home painted for a better price. The same goes for heating and air conditioning contractors, and movers. As items may need to be put items in tostorage.
Taking the best picture possible
This day and age, buyers have instant online access to information on thousands of homes. When they're privy to so much home buying knowledge, a picture is sometimes all they can handle seeing. The photo of your home may mean the difference between a buyer being intrigued enough to read the description of your home, and never giving it a second look. One of the best things you can do to prepare your home to go on the market is to keep a camera handy for getting just the right snapshot when picture won't be glaringly harsh because it was taken at high noon. Murphy’s law states that if you wait until the last minute to get a picture made for your listing, it will rain when your agent is available to take the picture. You can do a better job when the light is right, rather than on someone else's schedule.
Whether you're planning on selling soon or not, the next time after it rains, see if you can take a picture of your home that just happens to be right under a rainbow. In the spring, make sure to get an late evening shot with the amber sun glowing on your award-winning flower bed that buyers won't see if you sell in the winter. It's those little touches that make a big impression.
With just a little foresight, you can take a great deal of stress out of selling your house.
