When the time comes to sell your house, you don’t want it to sit on the market for a long time. You will want to update as much as possible and make sure the entire home is ready to show before it is put on the market. This may take some time and money, but the end result will make it all worth it.


Curb appeal is so important when your home is for sale. It is the first impression of your home that potential buyers have. There are plenty of things you can do to boost your curb appeal without breaking the bank. You can start by mowing the lawn and trimming any trees or bushes you have in the yard. Make sure that your trees and shrubs aren’t hiding your home and that flowers and other plants are alive. It is also important to remove dirt and scum from your siding and walkways by power washing them. If you don’t own a power washer, you can rent one from Home Depot, Lowes or other home improvement retail stores.


Not only do you want your exterior to be presentable, but you also need to prepare your interior for buyers to see. Break out your cleaning supplies because your home needs to be shining! Wipe down all countertops, sinks, windows (inside and outside), mop or vacuum all your floors, and dust the house including on top of ceiling fans, all shelving, and molding. Make sure everything is put away, such as toiletries and children’s toys, and there is no clutter throughout the house. It is also best if you have all beds made, towels in the bathrooms folded or hung nicely, and fresh bars of soap in the bathrooms.


Once you finish making your home look presentable, you want to make sure it smells presentable too. If you have pets, don’t let your house smell like it. It might be a good idea to shampoo carpets and furniture that have a lingering odor of your furry friends. Before a showing, bake some cookies or make some hot apple cider on the stove. This scent is going to go throughout your home and you’ll have a treat for your potential buyers!


Selling your home in the real estate market can be competitive, but if you make your home the house that everyone wants, you’ll sell in no time for at an incredible price!
