10 Projects You Should Do Before Selling A House

10 Projects You Should Do Before Selling A House

Looking to get a heads up on the housing market? These upgrades can make your home more appealing to buyers.

Tactics such as painting and de-cluttering can go a long way toward achieving this goal and these other simple home staging tips can bring up your home's wow factor to get that quick sale.

1. Have all of your carpets cleaned

This is especially true if you have pets. Some people are highly allergic to animals so getting all the hair and smells out of the home will open it up to more buyers.

If you have carpet that is old and worn-out with hardwood flooring underneath, remove the carpet, buyers are going to want to know the condition of the floors anyway.

2. Give your moldings a makeover

If your moldings are chipped, cracked, or scuffed, give them a quick touch-up, also do the same with walls that have scuff marks or stains.

3. Do up your deck

If you have outdoor areas such as a deck or patio, make it look as eye catching as possible, Upgrade your outdoor furniture by purchasing new cushions, pillows, or make new covers, give the grill a good cleaning, and add some potted plants or flowers to make it feel more homey. If it's winter and you live in a cold climate, be sure to keep these areas shoveled to show them off.

4. Freshen up your front door

Add a new coat of paint and replace the numbers with a more modern font. If your mailbox is old, rusted, or worn-out replace it with a new one. Also, be sure your entryway looks neat & tidy don't allow potential buyers to see or have to navigate through any clutter.

5. Remove roof moss

Moss leads buyers to believe that your roof is old and will be needing replaced soon. If you can get up on your roof, it's simple to remove moss. Use a long-handled scrub brush to get it loose and work down the roof to keep from lifting or breaking the shingles. Do not use a pressure washer because the power of the spray might damage the shingles.

6. Make sure your mechanics are in working order

Helping buyers feel that the furnace or boiler are in good shape and have life left in them will really help move your home quickly. Have these items inspected and cleaned prior to putting your house up for sale.

7. Cut your closets in half

Make your closets look bigger by, removing half the items and then neatly organize the remaining clothing and other items you have. Large closets a usually a big plus to buyers.

8. Update your outlets

If your electrical outlets and switches are broken, chipped, or outdated, replace them with a more modern or newer version. Make sure to use the same style in each room. Replace the switch plates too if they look old or broken.

9. Replace your toilet seats

It's an upgrade that goes a long way toward making your bathroom look updated and in good working order. Do the same with the shower curtain and the grout in the shower.

10. Perk up your pulls

The kitchen cabinets or drawers might be on the older side and if you don't have the time or money to redo them just replace the knobs and pulls with a modern or unique version. It can make a huge difference in your kitchen's appeal.
