Inexpensive ways to spruce your Macomb County MI home up for a quick sale! – Tips for home sellers

January 29th, 2013 · No Comments · macomb county mi real estate market, tips for home sellers

  The snow and icy rain mix we are seeing these last 2 weeks won’t stop the sale of your home if you stick to the following “tips” that my buyer clients have shown to be true:



Paint – an inexpensive way to spruce up the interior of your home.   Most buyers don’t mind painting when they move into their new home, in fact most prefer to personalize a home with their choice of colors.  However, they don’t like the appearance of drab and dirty walls, or overtly “bright” colors.    Make the first impression of the interior of your home a good one, you won’t get another “first” chance!

Steam clean carpeting:  If you can afford to have them professionally cleaned, do so!  If you can’t afford to, then rent a steam cleaner from your local hardware store.   Even old and worn carpeting can get a fresh look by being cleaned.  Looks better and smells better to the buyers coming in to your home!

Declutter!    If it looks like you’ve outgrown your home, and buyer won’t be able to picture themselves in it for years to come.  Declutter closets and cupboards to show off the space you DO have in your home.  This goes for garages also!  If your home is full of possessions then you may want to consider renting a storage unit while your home is on the market.  A few hundred dollars of storage fees will often pay for itself many times over when it comes to the offer on your home.

Clean!   People often forget about the little things.  Deep clean, not just “surface” clean.  Wipe down the front of those cupboards, scrub the tile in your bath, bring the glow back to your hardwood floors.    Almost every buyer that I’ve taken in to a nice clean home has remarked about how refreshing it was to be in a clean home.  Make yours stand out!

If you have questions about how to prepare your home for sale in the best possible way to attract a high offer and serious buyer, please ask your agent to walk through your home with you and advise you.
