  • selling your homeMake sure that you have done your part to make the outside of your home look nice. A fresh coat of paint can make a huge difference in the curb appeal of your home. You can do this yourself or you can hire a professional painter to speed the painting process along. Choose a color that will make your home stand out but also be sure that you choose a color that is neutral and that most people are going to like.
  • Take the plunge and purchase new carpet for your house. If selling your home is important to you, you are going to do what it takes to get it sold for the price you want sold for. If you are blessed enough to live in an older home that has beautiful hardwoods under the old carpet, you might be able to just pull the old carpet up and expose the nice hardwoods. It may take a bit of work to get the hardwoods up to par, but this kind of flooring can be a huge plus towards selling your home if you happen to already have it under your carpet.
  • Wallpaper is outdated so keep that in mind when you are getting ready to sell your home. Go ahead and take down all the wallpaper so that you can paint with a nice neutral color that will be pleasing to anyone’s eye.
  • If you have pets in your home, do your best to remove all of their belongings before a showing. People do not want to see the home as yours, they want to see and envision themselves living in the house and having your pet’s belongings all over the house will not help them to achieve that goal.  If your buyer can see themselves living in your house they are more likely to purchase it.
  • Replace all of your lights with high wattage bulbs. The brighter the better when you are trying to sell your home! You want your home to pop and grab folk’s attention and this little trick will do just that for you!
