I often get asked by potential sellers what they should do to prepare their home for sale and what has the best return on investment.
For home sellers on a tighter budget I would suggest doing any minor repairs that have been overdue (broken handle, changing light bulbs, tightening up loose knobs, replacing broken fixtures…), painting, if needed, and definitely having the house professionally cleaned including windows (inside and out).
Refinishing hardwood floors is a nice and well appreciated bonus but is not always possible/practical as it may take up to 7 days and all furniture must be moved out so this solution only works for sellers who have moved out of the house in general.
For more tips on the must dos for prepping a home for market please contact me. I will be happy to share my 20 years of experience in the business!
Happy Cleaning and Selling!
