Preparing Your Home to List

Preparing Your Home to List

Begin this process with one simple idea:"This is not my home, it is a house for sale."

This allows you to look at your home through the lense of a Buyer. When you are looking at property to purchase, what is important to you?

Recommended TO DO LIST:

Level 1: The Basics

De-clutter, De-personalize, Deep-clean

Level 2: Beyond the Basics

Paint the walls neutral colours, make minor repairs, re-arrange furniture/art

Level 3: Way Beyond the Basics

Major renovations, complete unfinished basements, consider professional staging

Helpful Tips

*Think of this process as a head start to packing

* Even though some repairs seem minor, they can be a major factor in determining whether the Buyer will actually buy.

* Pay attention to rooms that smell - this is can be very off putting to Buyers.

* Don't forget about the outside - curb appeal is very important!
