The Phoenix Metro area covers a lot of communities with a lot of competition for home sellers. You want your home to look its best and here are some tips to help have your house sell in a timely manner – it doesn’t have to involve spending a lot of money.
You can start by giving your home and property a thorough cleaning. Look at spots in and out of your home that you might overlook when straightening out for company. Potential home buyers are going to look in every room, closet and corner of your property. So clean out your cabinets, wipe off the overhead lighting, clean the front and back porches. Once you have your home sparkling try to maintain the house at that level of cleanliness.
Try to walk around your home wearing slippers instead of shoes and scrub and shine on a regular basis. If you can’t do this intensive cleaning consider hiring a professional cleaning service until your home is sold.
Home buyers are more readily to purchase a home that looks like a blank stage so you should de-personalize your home. This way they can picture their belongings in your home’s space. Start by packing away the items that make your home look cluttered – toys, papers, clothes and personal photos. Another good idea is to put a fresh coat of paint on walls to make the home look clean and bright especially if you have dark colors on your walls.
Lastly hire a professional gardener to give your home curb appeal and the backyard a place that is pleasing to sit and look at.
