It’s almost time to sell your home, and preparations are underway as you get the property ready for all the people to wander through it as they look for their new house. If you want your home to sell quickly, there are a few things you can do to move your property off the ‘for sale’ listing and onto the ‘SOLD’ list. Of course you will want to get organized, look for another home, and start to pack, but that is not all you need to do. Here are three things you should to do before you sell your home.
1. Check for Pests
Pests can come in many different sizes, from tiny fleas to large raccoons. Since pests can make potential home buyers run away, be on the lookout for any indicators that the bugs or critters are hanging around. If you find any signs of pests, call in a Fort Myers pest control team to get rid of the problem.
2. Take a Good Look
If you are like most people, you have ignored many things about your home as the years went by. Perhaps the front door is marred, the mailbox has dings, or the sidewalk is chipped. If you want to get the most money from your property and sell quickly, you may want to take a fresh look at your home and fix the items.
3. Improve the Landscape
No on wants to purchase a home with a dirty or dead yard, so take time to clean dead plants, trim bushes, and cut the grass. Plant a few flowers for add color and appeal if you have time and add a potted flower to your entry way or deck.
If you want to sell your home quickly, make sure you take the time to make it into a house you would want to move into. Then watch the buyers fight for your property.
