Tip For Selling Your Home

As your real estate agent can tell you, when you're trying to sell your waterfront property, it's important you keep the house in as good a shape as possible. When you have lived in a house for so long, however, it's easy to overlook the areas where improvement is needed. Here are three ideas to inexpensively spruce up your home and grab prospective buyer's attention.

Increase The Curb Appeal

The first thing a potential buyer notices when they pull up for an open house is the outside of the house itself. If the exterior of the home is in an unkempt condition, it's natural to assume the interior isn't any more well-cared for. The last thing you want when you are trying to sell your home is repeated drive-bys where they don't even get out of the car.

If landscaping isn't your thing, hire professionals to come in and prune your trees, trim your shrubs, and add flower beds. Make sure you keep the lawn freshly mown, and reseed where necessary. If you have a front porch, even a small one, create an outdoor living space that looks welcoming and like an enjoyable area to sit and have a cup of morning coffee while they read the paper.

If the home's exterior is in rough shape, new siding will return over a 76 percent return on your investment. If you don't want to deal with replacing the siding entirely, spend the weekend powerwashing it and touching up any trim work in need of new paint.

For homeowners who have waterfront property, you will want to make sure the backside of the house is in top condition as well. Make sure the dock is in good working order, and show how the space can be used by creating a seating area to enjoy sunsets over the water.

Get Rid Of Clutter

The more stuff you have, the less easy it is for a prospective homeowner to imagine themselves living there. The smaller the rooms and storage areas like closets look, too. Since you have to pack and move all of your possessions eventually anyway, start getting rid of stuff before you put it on the market. Go through each room, setting aside things to sell, donate, and throwaway. If you have a lot of things you want to keep, consider renting a storage garage and relocate them there until you move.

Clean, Clean, and Clean!

You want your home to be spic and span, sparkling clean. Pay attention to things like dusty ceiling fans and baseboards. Use grout cleaner in the bathrooms. You want your home to look and smell as clean as you can get it.
