How to Prepare Your Home For Sale: A Seller's To-Do Checklist

Selling your home is about taking an objective look from a buyer's point of view. When you live in a home, especially for a long time, it’s easy to overlook the things that can make or break an offer. Investing some time and effort up front to prepare your house for showings will generally increase the likelihood of receiving offers soon after you list your home. Spending some time cleaning, maintaining, replacing or freshening up will ultimately help you make your home more appealing to buyers, minimizing your time on the market, and maximizing your return. This may seem like an overwhelming task, but you can simplify the job by tackling one room at a time with this handy checklist. You want to make your home look as new as possible. If you are short on time, it’s especially important to remember to prioritize this list with cleaning and de-cluttering being the top priority. Use the checklist below to help you see your home fresh through buyer’s eyes.
