Summer is right around the corner and it is bound to usher in the annual summer sales rush. This is why it is an ideal time for many if not most, home owners to ship up and get their home all nice and ready for sale.
Here are a few things you can do to ensure that any real estate agent who brings a prospective home buyer to your home, will be able to help you clinch the deal as soon as possible.
o Use your skills with the paint and the brush
While redecorating your whole house can turn out to be a really expensive and not to mention a really time consuming task. Instead, it is a lot easier to just simply paint a fairly straightforward feature wall in either the drawing room or the reception area or even the kitchen. This will be both easier as well as quicker to add a bit of life into that particular space (especially if your use vibrant contrasting colors).
o Spruce up your garden
While not every home has the luxuryof having a lawn or a full-fledged garden, but if you are indeed lucky enough to have one, then the best possible thing to do is to spruce it up as best as you can.
You should make sure that you have pruned and weeded the bushes, flower beds and trees present on your property so that the whole place looks clean and well maintained when the real estate agent comes calling. You can also wash out the various shrubs and plants so that the whole area gives a clean and well-kept look. This should be done because the garden is the very first potion of your house that any prospective buyer will see.
o Take care of the exterior portion of your property
The age old adage ‘the first impression is the last impression’ still rings as true today as it used to, in ages past. This is why it is imperative that you enhance the curb value of your property by giving extra special attention to the exterior, keeping in mind the fact that it may have gone through the rigors of a really tough winter.
Here is what you should do: take a walk around the property and meticulously examine the caulking all around the doors and the windows. Look carefully for obvious signs of weather damage and stripping. Replaced all the cracked caulk and repaint the faded areas if necessary. Then proceed to inspect the roof as well, for any for broken or damaged and missing shingles, or tiles. While at it, you should also take some time out to clean out the downspouts and gutters in case there is any residual matter inside, which will clog the drains.
