Planning on making a move? Do these 5 simple things and get more for your home!

So you've decided its time to move.  Don't just put your home on the market hoping for the best. Get prepared and put yourself in a position to get the biggest results.  After all, this was a huge investment for you and will most likey impact where and what you buy next.


Here are 5 simple things that you need to do to get your home ready to show and sell!


1. Take an inventory of your home. What has been updated or renovated and what might need repairs and updates.

2.  Declutter. Imagine you were a prospective buyer.  Would you be impressed with a home that was full of someones stuff?  Buyers want to see the home, not all of the owners belongings. Clearing off counters to show space and putting everything away neatly gives a good first impression and not only increases the chance of selling, but also the price!

3. Deep Clean. This goes hand in hand with decluttering.  Make sure windows, mouldings and appliances have all been cleaned and dusted. Don't use any harsh chemicals that leave a strong odour.  A clean home with a nice neutral smell feels more inviting. This will let buyers know that your home has been well cared for, making it more likely they'll want to bring an offer.

4.  Decide on painting and staging.  Painting and staging can potentially increase the value a home is sold by up to 5% and you may not need to do much.  

5. Time your sale.  Are there alot of similiar homes for sale in your neighborhood? How is the buyer pool looking at the present moment? Knowing these things can help you time the sale of your home to maximize your profits.
