Are you a homeowner looking to put your home on the market? If so, let me tell you the five things you must do to maximize your home’s value to attract top dollar offers.
Hi, I’m Tanja Odzak, Our East Bay Home brokered by eXp Realty… and I sell homes in Oakland, Berkeley, and the San Francisco East Bay
Here are the five easy things you can do to get top dollar on your home.
Clean and Declutter A clean and clutter free home is more appealing to potential buyers. Clean your home thoroughly and remove any excess clutter to create a more spacious and inviting environment.
Make necessary Repairs Before putting your home on the market, make a list of low cost repairs that need to be done like fixing leaky faucets, patching holes in the walls, cleaning or replacing grout in the kitchen and bathroom. Absolutely get your pre-inspections done before going on the market! This will be your home, roof, and pest inspections to see what significant work might need to be done… and anything else that reveals itself as warranting inspection
Enhancing your Curb Appeal First impressions are important so make sure your home’s exterior looks its best by trimming overgrown bushes, lay ground covering such as bark, powerwash the exterior or paint the front door.
Stage your home Staging can help potential buyers envision themselves living in your home. Rearrange furniture, add decorative touches and create a cohesive look throughout the home. Make your house look sexy to romance buyers.
And finally, Price it Right In today’s market as a seller, you need to be competitive with your list price so you do not become stale on the market.
This is why it is so important to work with an experienced real estate professional to show you all the current market data and sold comparables in the neighborhood.
