HOW TO SELL YOUR HOUSE FAST IN A BUYER’S MARKET

We understand you would like to sell your house fast and remodel it with a low budget.
These 5 tips will help you with this task:

FIRST IMPRESSION

A good first Impression and a nice curb appeal will have a positive affect on a potential buyer even before entering the house. This can be done by several simple improvements such as a new mail box, light fixture, house number, and some greenery. A 12V light kit can give the house a night time curb appeal for less then 100 dollars.

LIGHT FIXTURES

Replacing old fixtures will make a nice and clean impression.

NEW CARPET

There are many nice and inexpensive options you can choose from that will give the space a fresh feeling.

NOTHING BROKEN

Make sure you fix all the broken items. This will help the buyer visualize a house in a move in condition.

FRESH PAINT

This inexpensive project will make a huge difference. Choose a neutral color that will allow each buyer to imagine the house as their own.

Make it easy on your clients to make a decision.

THESE 5 TIPS WILL HELP YOU PREPARE YOUR LISTING FOR A WINTER HOME INSPECTION

CHECK IF THE ROOF IS LEAKING

You can do that by first looking at the ceiling and checking for yellow stains on it. Be aware that flat roofs tend to leak more than gabled roofs. A quick look at the attic while it's raining can also give you an idea if it's leaking or not. Clean gutters and downspouts. Take a good look at the shingles. Make sure none are missing or curled up.

EXPOSED EXTERIOR ELECTRICAL WIRES

A huge safety hazard that can really jeopardize your sale. Walk around the property and be sure to look inside and up when you reach the electric panel. Check to see that all wires are covered and that there are no loose ends or exposed elements of electricity.

WINDOWS THAT LEAK

Visit your property on a rainy day and look at the interior of the window sills. Moist sills are a sign that you have a leaking window. Check all windows and doors for air leaks. Install storm windows and putty, caulk or add weather stripping as needed.

WATER SEEPAGE

Houses that are on a slab are prone to having water seep in from the outside. Check the foundation for proper drainage. To do this, spray the yard with a hose to see if water runs away from the house. A little shoveling to reshape the earth next to the house may make the water run away from the foundation.

FURNACE MAINTENANCE

Make sure your furnace is working or get an AC expert for a start up service. Have your furnace serviced to ensure it's working efficiently and that it is not emitting carbon monoxide.
