Are you thinking about putting your home on the market but you’re not sure where to start? Here are inexpensive things that you can start on today to help you get your home ready to sell.
Make the Right Decisions
Deciding where to start when getting your home ready to sell can be overwhelming. And if you watch a lot of HGTV you might be under the impression that you’ll need to remodel your house from top to bottom to sell it. The reality is homes sell every day in every possible condition, from homes that look like they could be featured in Architectural Digest to homes that haven’t been updated in 40 years and everything in between.
When deciding what to do to get your home ready to sell you’ll need to make good financial decisions. You wouldn’t want to make a $5,000 upgrade to your home if it only increases the value by $2,000, for example. You’ll also need to factor in how much time you have to get your home ready and your budget. A short window to prepare may mean that you can only tackle the basics. If you only have a week to get your home ready to sell you may only be able to do a little bit of organizing and cleaning given the time restraints.
