Hi friends! I sold this home at 669 Fuhrer, Mansfield, Ohio 44904 in Lexington Schools this week for $135,000. It was completely updated and gorgeous inside! The seller did a phenomenal job of updating the kitchen, bathrooms, and flooring.
If you are thinking of selling, and have questions about what updates you should do – I invite you to give me a call! I would love to stop by and give you my customized recommendation! In the meantime here are my three most basic tips for sellers when they are preparing their home for sale:
#1. Remove non essential items from your home. This one is a little cliche but it is so important not to skip this step! Removing the clutter and creating fresh, inviting spaces will help your home sell faster! My tip is to utilize an inexpensive storage unit for a few months and store extra toys, clothes, kitchen appliances, random pieces of furniture there while you are staging your home for sale.
#2. Paint. My clients always tell me how amazed they are when they spend a weekend putting a coat of fresh paint in their homes. Pick neutral colors – grays and tans are very popular. If you have white trim and doors – touch those up too. It’s amazing the transformation that can take place with a $25 bucket of paint.
#3. Clean. Clean. Clean. I would recommend splurging and hiring a cleaning professional to deep clean your home right before you list. If that is not an option – take a few days and in addition to normal cleaning – do a deep clean! Wipe walls, window sills, cabinets, baseboards. Scrub bathtubs and showers – people always peek behind the curtains! Organize your garage and closets. Power wash your home and driveway. Get your vacuum attachments out and vacuum along baseboards, furniture, stairs.
If you are thinking of selling, please let me know and I’d be happy to schedule an appointment to do a walk through of your home and offer you additional recommendations for preparing your home for a quick sale.
