Life is full of those significant moments that you mark in time. Graduations and birthdays, marriage, the birth of your children. Your first home. Selling that first home or perhaps the home where so many of those other life-changing occasions took place also has a place on the list. So, when you decide to sell that home, no matter the reason, it is a major move.
So, you and your spouse have made the decision, which means it is time to get your home ready to sell. If you haven’t already, partnering with a licensed real estate professional is always a good move. Experienced real estate agents will help you not only determine what your home is worth, but what needs to be done to it to maximize its appeal to prospective buyers.
First impression is important, so once your home is ready to list, ask your realtor to hold an open house to announce its arrival on the market. This will provide a forum for other agents and potential buyers to get a first look. Making your home look as good as possible with landscaping improvements, interior/exterior painting and cleaning are all crucial. Making minor repairs on such items as broken windows or door knobs or any holes in the wall are also obvious must-dos. If your roof is old or aging, you should also have your it inspected by a licensed roofing professional.
Making sure your major appliances are in peak working condition or are repaired/replaced if necessary is also important. With that in mind, your friends at Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air offer a few tips of our own to make sure those major appliances/systems are ready for your home’s sale:
