Extra Thought Can Mean Better Sales Price, Less Time on Market

Even if you’ve kept your home in mint condition over the years, a little extra thought can mean thousands more in your sales price. It can also mean the difference between a week and a couple of months on the market.

Here are some projects to take care of before your home goes on the market.

  • Paint inside and outside
  • Clean up the yard – curb appeal
  • Clean the roof
  • Update the kitchen- new fixtures, countertops
  • Clean the bathrooms – new toilet seats, fixtures
  • Improve lighting throughout the house
  • Refinish hardwood floors
  • Make sure everything works

By postponing necessary repairs, a seller can lose twice – first in a lower sales price and later when a lender requires repairs for closing.
