Easy Simple Steps To Sell Your Home
When you don't have a lot of money to spend getting your home ready to sell, there are many things you can do yourself. Figure out what you have to do and put the tasks in a prioritized list as quickly as possible. As you won't be hiring out the work, but doing it when you can, it will take longer to get your house prepared.
Sometimes it may be necessary to do a few chores at a time, as your paychecks roll in. That's perfectly fine. Just do as much as you can. With limited funds, you will be doing most of the preparation yourself. Nevertheless, every thing you do will be well worth the time spent. Your first priority is to decide what needs to be done to prepare you house for buyers to view. You can do some research online and also ask your real estate agent for ideas.
The outside of your home may not appear to be dirty, but you can be certain that it needs a thorough cleaning. This is especially true of homes with vinyl siding that haven't been cleaned in the last five years. Many local business will have power sprayers to rent.
It won't take more than a hour or two to clean up the outside of your home with a power sprayer. While you have the power sprayer, then you should go ahead and clean anything else. Driveways, walk ways, garden paths, and the front sidewalk would all benefit from a power spray cleaning. This investment of your time will go a long way to enhance the curb appeal of your home. Realtors say that if you present something in the color yellow, it will add an upbeat appearance to your home. This particular color will give your home an alluring, comfortable feeling. Use this to your advantage with the street marketing effect. The overall look of your house from the outside is crucial. Any type of yellow accent will get this feeling across; maybe some yellow flower pots with colorful flowers in them. Another suggestion would be to hang a wreath with yellow flowers amongst it. Let your creative juices flow.
The upstairs bathrooms can have unique issues that will make an impact on people looking to buy. Glass shower doors can be a problem. Over time, they get an unsightly lime build up that isn't pleasant. Go to your home improvement center and buy a lime remover. After using it, your shower doors will sparkle like new. Another potential problem area are bathtubs. Sometimes you just can't get rid of the stains that appear over time. Most folks aren't able to go to the expense of putting in a new tub; however, you can get the surface refinished. Your home improvement center should be able to steer you in the right direction to find someone who can refinish the surface of your bathtub. Usually when people are viewing a home, they just take a quick peek at the bathrooms. So, if yours is clean and shiny, it may pass their inspection.
Your real estate agent is the best person to give you in depth information about the selling process, so don't hesitate to ask as many questions as you want. As you no doubt know, a real estate agent doesn't get paid until your home sells. Therefore, they are more than happy to help you prepare your home to the best advantage.
With these easy and simple steps, prepare a plan of action that allows you to do the most important things necessary to sell your home, even with a limited budget.
