  • 14. Preparing Your Home for SaleBreak out the mop and the paintbrush. It’s time to give your home a mini-makeover. Here are allthe little things you can do to attract the big offers.Time to see your home through a buyer’s eyes.Over the years, you’ve grown quite comfortable with your home’s little imperfections; the holein the screen door, the chipped paint on the baseboards, the mess in the basement. Grab aclipboard, print out a copy of our “Home Preparations Checklist” and take a tour of your home.Get rid of the clutter.Your house will feel a lot bigger and more inviting when you get rid of all the non-essential stufflying around your house. Clear out those closets, remove bulky, unused furniture and rearrangethe remaining pieces to make the best use of space. Fight your inner-pack rat at every turn. Ifyou haven’t used something in the past year, toss it, donate it to charity or sell it in a yard sale.Clean everything.Cleaning is the single most cost effective way to make your home more attractive to buyers.Floors, windows, walls, doors, baseboards...everything! Give extra care and attention to the twomost important rooms in a buyer’s mind: bathrooms and kitchens. Once it’s clean, keep it clean!You never know what day your ideal buyer will visit.
  • 15. Continued….Repair as much as you can, within reason.During your “home tour” identify anything that’s broken, half-finished or simply doesn’twork. Fix all the little things like leaky faucets, doors that squeak or that don’t close properlyand small cracks in the ceiling.Some repairs are absolutely vital, like a leaky roof or basement. Nothing kills a sale fasterthan signs of water damage. If there’s an unsafe electrical problem you must fix this too, forthe good of the sale and the buyer’s safety (not to mention your own).Depersonalize your home.Remember, you want buyers to walk through your house and feel like it’s their home, notyours! People just don’t have good visual imagination. They won’t see past your clutteredwall of family portraits, your collection of curling trophies or your ‘eccentric’ home decor.These things are guaranteed to prevent buyers from emotionally placing themselves in yourhome. Remove everything that’s too much about you, and ask your REALTOR® for helpdeciding.
  • 16. Continued….Never underestimate the power of paint.Strong colours on the walls or wild wallpaper make it hard for buyers to imagine theirfurniture in your house. Consider repainting your home in bright, neutral colours that willenhance a room’s size and look more inviting. Next to cleaning your home, paint is the mostcost-effective way to increase your home’s appeal, and attract offers.Add some beautifying touches.Replacing tattered old curtains with some fresh draperies may make a world of difference.Mirrors on the wall will help rooms feel far bigger. A few new houseplants will addundeniable appeal. Pay special attention to the outside of your home. Trim the trees, weedthe garden and consider planting a few new flowers. Your home needs to make a great firstimpression with some serious “curb appeal.” You don’t need to spend a fortune to make abig difference.
