How you can prep your home for the market and sell for top dollar.

What can you do to sell your home for top dollar? Our best advice to clients who want to sell their homes is to think like a buyer. You have to put yourself in your buyers’ shoes to really understand what it is they’re looking for. Most buyers want a home that’s move-in ready. For sellers, this means you have to find creative ways to prepare your home without spending too much money. Here are a few simple improvements that you can do to your home to make it move-in ready:

1. Paint your home. Most buyers don’t want additional projects. By painting in advance, your home becomes more inviting. You can do this yourself if you don’t want to pay for labor. You can also go to the model center of a new build community to find out the color trends of new homes.

2. Replace old carpeting. Simply replacing old, worn-out carpeting with new carpeting in a neutral color will make your home immediately more attractive to buyers.

Preparing your home for the market doesn’t have to cost a fortune; small improvements like the ones mentioned above can bring huge returns. If you’re thinking of selling and want to learn how to prep your home for top dollar, don’t hesitate to call or email us. We’ll be happy to help!
