Get Your Home Ready To Sell

Are you thinking about selling your home?

The most important thing you can do is prep the house to show it's best on the very first day. Find at least one area you can say is a "Wow" factor. The most productive areas to do the "Wow" are the kitchen, bathrooms or yard.

If you have moved out, stage your home. It will bring more money to you in the long run if you have priced your home correctly.

Here are a few other things to consider when preparing your property:

1 Practice thorough yard maintenance.

2 Reseal cracks in concrete areas.

3 Power-wash the exterior.

4 Clean and align gutters and downspouts.

5 Clean the chimney.

6 Remove oil stains from driveway and garage. Sweep walks and driveway.

7 Wash windows.

8 Thoroughly clean the interior.

9 Repair damage to all indoor surfaces.

10 Repair drippy faucets and shower heads.

11 Unclog slow drains.

12 Shampoo carpets, scrub and wax linoleum and wood floors.

13 Clean out the fireplace.

14 Mend torn screens. Clean out window tracks.

15 Replace burned-out light bulbs.

16 Renail creaking boards or stairs; lubricate squeaking doors.

17 Clean all appliances.

18 Replace toilet seats and shower curtains.

19 Clear away all cobwebs.

20 Wash all light switches, handrails and doorknobs.
