When listing your house, one of your top goals will likely be to get the house sold for the best price possible. In many cases, it’s the little things that make a big impact. Here are some small projects you can do to make sure your house is in tip-top shape when you’re ready to sell.
Give your entry a facelift
Try a fresh coat of paint or a new front door.
Landscape your yard
A well-groomed lawn shows buyers the house was cared for.
Make sure all exterior lights work
Replace outdoor light bulbs.
Wash all windows
(inside and out)
Don’t let dirty windows take away from a great view.
Clean out your garage
Consider getting a storage unit to remove any non-essential items you want to keep.
Depending on the climate in your area, you may want to add a pop of color around your yard.
Remove any lawn ornaments
Pack everything you are planning to bring with you to your new home.
Replace a worn-out welcome mat
Welcome buyers with a fresh step into your house.
Paint or replace the street numbers on your house
Make them more visible to potential buyers.
Power wash outdoor surfaces
Give them a ‘like new’ feeling (ex: siding, sidewalks, driveway).
Every small project can make a big difference when you’re ready to close a top-dollar sale.
