How you can greatly impact the value of your home before you sell.

Have you ever thought about what you may need to do to prepare your home to put the most money in your pocket? This may surprise a lot of people, but it’s not about putting in a new kitchen or bathroom—sometimes, small changes can make a big difference.

When it comes to small changes, we always recommend cleaning, removing clutter, touching up the paint, and putting things away. All of these things are subtle but will help people see the beauty of your home, which will help you put more money in your pocket.

Many sellers say they don’t want to be bothered with all this stuff and will pack up when it’s time to move. However, that’s one of the biggest mistakes a seller can make.

"Small changes can make a big difference."

When deciding what to work on, it can be difficult to discern what would be worthwhile. If you need help with this decision, know that we can help. We can also connect you with people who have the right knowledge and skill to help you with all kinds of projects.

In addition, when you’re trying to decide beforehand how much your home will sell for, don’t rely too much on online estimates. Things like Zestimates don’t know what the interior of your home looks like, how old your roof is, what condition your water heater is in, and things like that. However, those factors play a big part in how much your home is worth and how much buyers are willing to pay.

To get a more reliable number, we recommend you go to a professional. If this is something you’re interested in, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to help you and answer any questions that you might have. Call or email us anytime, and we can help you sell your home for the most money possible.
