If you're like most people, you've probably trained yourself to overlook details of your home that require some attention.
But if your buyer is like most people, they've probably trained themselves to be critical of those same details.
So right now, it's time to take a hard look at your current home and see it through the eyes of a buyer.
General maintenance items to consider:
Break out those rubber gloves and start scrubbing!
Want to make a good impression on buyers?
Consider hiring a home inspector to conduct a pre-listing inspection.
It's not as intrusive as a full home inspection, but it can help you identify items that you want to correct ahead of time.
You can even present it to buyers as a way to differentiate yourself from the competition.
We know we gave you a long list of chores that you could spend months perfecting, but if the goal is to get your home ready for the market, keep that target date in mind.
If a project or contractor is going to delay your timeline too much, search for an alternative.
If you complete your tasks at a steady pace, you'll have buyers falling in love with your home before you know it.
