Getting your house ready for sale

Are you considering selling your home in the near future?  If you are, then it would be a good idea to take a good long look at your home, using an unbiased eye.

A clean well maintained home is more appealing and has a much greater chance of selling faster and for more money.

When looking at your house, the thing you need to keep repeating to yourself is that “first impressions are lasting impressions.” This couldn't be truer when it comes to selling real estate.

However, this doesn't mean that you should take on a major renovation project just so that you can sell your property. Remember, there are no guarantees that you would recover the costs of a large renovation.

Instead, take a more conservative approach, and have a look at the different cosmetic improvements that can be made for an overall improvement. These can include things such as cleaning, painting, refinishing, and other such efforts. These are the projects that don't require all that much capital, and yet they make an immeasurable improvement to the overall look of your home.

Before you take on any fix-up-for-sale projects, take on the mindset that you are sprucing up your home in order to sell it. Don't think of it as fixing it up for someone else. You're trying to create more of an appealing look than you are a perfect home.

If you fix up the house with a certain person in mind, you're limiting your market. Limiting your market will usually mean a slower sale, and a lower selling price.

So instead of tackling a whole mess of huge projects, just focus on making the home attractive, clean, presentable, and well maintained. Let the new owners do their own customizations.
