4 Tips to Prep Your Bay Area Home For Sale

When selling a home, it’s important to take care of the small details that seem unimportant.

A potential buyer could dismiss your home due to a few noticeable flaws.

It’s important to ensure the home is at its best before putting it up for sale.

Below are some preparations that you can do to increase a potential buyer’s interest in your house.

4 Tips to Prep Your Home for Sale

1. Get a Home Inspection

Before putting a house up for sale, it’s important to enlist the services of a home inspector to look for problems that could discourage potential buyers from buying the house.

Getting a professional to inspect the house and give ideas that will help improve the house will increase its chances of being bought.

Some states require that a home be inspected and the results presented when selling the house.

2. Declutter and Clean Your House

A clean house will give a good impression to potential buyers. It will show that the house has been well taken care of.

Hire professional cleaners to ensure that a thorough job is done.

Clearing the clutter and organizing the house will make it more attractive to potential buyers

3. Make Repairs

Make repairs that might seem insignificant.

If the inspector finds any problems in your home, they should not be downplayed as they might affect the buyer’s view of your home.

Minor problems such as a sticky door or a dripping faucet could make a potential buyer balk.

4. Take Down Personal Effects

if you have decided to sell your house, take down personal effects such as photographs, paintings and pictures.

De-personalizing the house will tell the potential buyer that you are serious about selling the house and the buyer can start imagining where they want to put their stuff.

Buyers don’t want to see personal stuff laying around as it might seem careless and unprofessional.
