Preparing Your Home For Sale

Preparing to Sell Your Home

Our homes become familiar over time and it’s easy to overlook or dismiss deficiencies as “character”.  When someone sees your home for the first time, they have a completely different view of the space.  Look at your home from a critical view point and see if it looks different to you.

Everyone wants to buy a move-in ready house that smells fresh and is in good repair. Most people will have only a day or two to move houses and the average person won’t be interested in renovating. Only investors or wholesale buyers will look forward to painting your cabinets or replacing carpets.

When preparing to sell, it’s helpful to look at similar homes to see the level at which they are staged. Your home may be compared to new homes in the same neighbourhood and for this reason it’s important to make it show well.

With so many choices available, your home needs to look its very best to attract offers.  A little preparation and forethought will make your home a stand-out in the crowd.
