Tips for Selling Your Home

Are you trying to sell your home or thinking about selling it? It can be a tough real estate market out there for homeowners.

Although it might be a challenging time to put your home on the market, there are steps you can take to help change your "for sale" sign to "sold." The key is to pay attention to every detail buyers will have their eyes and hands on. Try these tips from the National Association of Realtors® to make your home stand out among the competition.

Spruce Up the Curb Appeal

You don't have a second chance to make a first impression, so it's important to ensure the exterior is in excellent shape.

  • Keep the lawn cut and watered.
  • Trim hedges, weed lawns and flower gardens, prune trees.
  • Check the driveway and walkways for cracks or crumbling.
  • Fix peeling paint around doors and windows.
  • Clean and align gutters.
  • Repair loose shingles, siding and caulking.
  • Apply a fresh coat of paint to the door.
  • Keep the garage door closed.
  • Make sure front and back yards are free of clutter (bikes, toys, lawn ornaments).

Set the Stage Inside

A clean, well-polished interior appeals to buyers. Set up an inviting atmosphere (often referred to as "staging") so buyers can picture themselves living in your home.
  • Put away personal items (including photos, trophies, children's artwork).
  • Store furniture you don't use off site to make rooms appear larger and brighter.
  • Consider hiring a professional cleaning service to make every room spotless.
  • Clean pet areas and make sure your guard dog is away during showings.
  • Organize cabinets and closets – buyers will peek inside.
  • Repair cracks, holes or damage to walls, wallpaper, paint and tiles.
  • Replace broken windows, woodwork and doorknobs.
  • Paint walls a neutral color.
  • Fix dripping faucets and showerheads.
  • Consider baking bread or cookies before a showing ­– the sense of smell is powerful!
