Spring season is just around the corner, and the real estate market doesn’t wait for anyone, and if you are thinking about selling your home, you should know that there is companies that buy houses in Boise. Selling a home shouldn’t be stressful, but it is a daunting task because there are so many things you must do to prepare your home if you just put it on the market.
There are going to be lots of other houses on the market, so you must ensure that you prepare your house in a manner that attracts homebuyers. I successfully sold my house two months ago, what strategy did I use? Well I made small modifications like my kitchen and bathroom cabinets. For this I used the services of cabinet painter in Mckinney TX.
So, here is what you need to do to get your home ready to sell this spring:
Get in touch with a Platinum Real Estate agent
The first step you must take is get in touch with a real estate agent who will price your property, and will guide you throughout the entire home selling process. Keep in mind that there isn’t any guarantee you will sell your home, with some homes staying for weeks and months on the listings. Getting the right real estate agent can help you sell your home quickly this spring. I can assist you contact me today at luther(at)platinumrealestate(dotted)com.
Make repairs to the house
You must ensure that the homebuyer doesn’t find anything wrong with your home, which is why you must prioritize repairs. Look at your property from the eyes of a buyer, and get to work on anything that is cracked, leaky, chipped, or in need of a touch up such as dairy brick repair. Get done with small things first, because repair work can take time and quickly build up. You must also plan ahead for residential foundation repair as this is one of the most important things to check when selling your property. Therefore, plan the foundation repair, and get them out of the way, so that no homebuyer has any complaints with your home. Look into an air conditioning contractor if you have issues with your air conditioning. The summer months will be coming soon so making sure the air conditioning installation is in working order should be high on the list of priorities. The reasoning behind this is that during a home inspection potential buyers will be on the lookout for things that might need repairs, maintenance, and/or replacement. As you can imagine, the status of the air conditioning is one of the first things that is observed. Take care of it before it becomes an issue and score some easy points.
If any of these repairs mean you don’t have working bathrooms, I suggest you call a portable toilet rental for some portable toilets. It’s definitely better to have a portable toilet ready, than needing it and not having one. It will take away the time pressure to the repair as well.
Stage your home
The next step is one of the most important ones, because after you have made repairs to your home, you need to stage it. You must have looked at thousands of different photos of real estate listings, with one thing in common in all of them, all the houses looked neat and tidy. That is exactly the way a house should be staged, and you must do the same thing. So, declutter your home, buy new furniture if yours is too far gone, then get rid of all unwanted furniture or personal items that are blocking space.
The homebuyer wants to picture living in the home, and having your personal items lying around isn’t going to allow them to do that. Therefore, ensure that your home doesn’t have any needless items lying around when it is staged.
Get the paperwork in order
The final stage of getting your home ready to sell this spring is getting all your paperwork in order. This will mean making trips to the bank, and compiling all the building permits, receipts, and other important documents in order. Make sure that your paperwork is perfect, and you have collected all your bills, so that you homebuyers can have an estimate on the type of billing your house gets.
