Spiff it Up! Hoe It Out!

Picture this – you’re getting ready to sell or trade-in your old car.  What do you do?  Common sense says you get rid of the years of accumulated stuff, clean it up and make necessary repairs.  Why?  First of all, no buyer wants to look at a car full of your things.  And secondly, you want to maximize how much you can make on the sale by getting it in good condition.  In fact, you may even take it to a car detailer.  Well, the same holds true when you are ready to sell your house.   In order to attract buyers and get the most money for what is probably your largest investment, you need to de-clutter and de-personalize your home and neutralize your décor.  The house should be shiny clean from top to bottom including windows. And everything should be in good working order and up to snuff.  Hiring a home stager would up the rewards, just like a car detailer.  While it is hard to make the leap from living in your home to living in a house ready for the market, it will be time and money well spent with shorter days on market and more money in your pocket at the end!  If you are thinking of selling this spring, contact me for more selling advice.  603-526-4116, www.DonnaForest.com, Donna@DonnaForest.com
