Getting ready to sell your home can be a stressful experience. There are many things that need to be done, from preparing the home for selling to packing your belongings. Don’t let the stress of moving get you down; Gardener Moving has put together a guide to help you get your home ready to sell!
A home inspection is one of the most important investments that you can make when selling your home. No matter how pristine your home looks, buyers will still want to know the state of your home’s inner workings like the electricity, structural integrity, etc. If buyers don’t know what’s “under the hood,” then it can leave them with many unanswered questions, which can make it difficult for them to decide on an offer for your home.
While buyers can do their own inspection, having one done upfront can provide you with a few benefits, such as:
Without your own inspection, the buyer will make their offer based on their own inspection, which can also increase the likelihood that they will ask you to negotiate on the price or make repairs.
By having your own inspection done, you can minimize the questions the buyers have before they make an offer on your home. When scheduling your inspection, you need to make sure you have a property inspection, termite inspection, and roof inspection.
When selling your home, first impressions are critical. The appearance of your home from the outside is the first impression that buyers will see of the home. If the outside of your home is drab, it can turn potential buyers away.
Take the time to landscape around the home and consider adding pops of color with beautiful annuals and perennials. You can also add a fresh coat of paint to your front door for a fresh look. Colors such as gray, black, navy blue, or dark red are all great colors to complement your home.
While preparing your home to sell, you will need to stage it for real estate photos. This means cleaning up the home and packing away your items that are not needed for the photos or open house.
During the moving process, you will likely need a place to store non-essential items, so we recommend utilizing a storage unit. This will provide you with a place to safely and securely your items during the moving process.
