Spring selling tips on Dressing your Home for Success
The outside of your home needs to scream out, look at me! This means, as a Sacramento homeowner and future home seller you need to look at the outside of your house with a critical eye. The Sacramento home buyers do.
Drive up to your house like a home buyer, look at your house from the sides and the front. Need to get that grass greener? Does the roof need repairing? How’s the paint on the exterior of your home? Do you see paint flaking? The home buyer will.
Power washing is a must just like cleaning carpets is a must when you are dressing your house for success to sell.
- Repair the Roof (if you have a tile roof, hire a professional)
- Scrape the wood and Paint the Exterior of your Home
- Power Wash your Home, the Sidewalk, Driveway, Patio
- Clean the Gutters (the home inspector for the home buyer will be checking)
- Trim trees and bushes, remove any greenery from up against the house, spruce things up
- Plant flowers with color to attract the home buyer
- Clean the porch
- Clean/Paint front door
- Replace if needed the Front Door hardware (home buyers don’t like old and tarnished hardware)
Remember, that what looks old, messy and screaming of repair tells the Sacramento home buyer that you have not maintained your house. Why would the home buyer want to see the inside if the outside looks in disrepair? You only get one chance with a home buyer when they drive by your house for sale.
Sacramento home buyers are looking for well maintained homes and condos. They are not looking to spend money on repairs.
The outside of your house tells the story of what the home looks like inside.
In order to sell, your house it must shine, be priced correctly for the neighborhood and dressed for success from the outside to the inside.
