Spending the time and effort to prepare your home for sale can provide you with benefits you hadn’t imagined in both the length of time your home is on the market and the price you will realize for your home.
Most people ask us when we evaluate their home what things they need to do to prepare. The most important things are obvious. Do minor repairs, paint where necessary (neutral of course) and remove all clutter. There are a number of inexpensive storage boxes on the market that are attractive and useful, which you can use in your future home as well. It’s a good time to start sorting out and packing in moving boxes …or doing that garage sale that you have been planning for a while.
In the alternative, it is probably a good time to start sorting out and packing in moving boxes …or doing that garage sale that you have been planning for a while. “The Moving Store” has everything you need to begin the packing process, (such as different size cardboard boxes, tape guns, and labels etc.) It is also a good idea to have different colour labels for different rooms. (It makes it easier on moving day.)
If doing renovations.. the most important major renovations (as always) are kitchens, bathrooms and main floor family rooms.
We also have names of contractors, workmen, painters and flooring people that we have used and found reliable. Please click here to visit our Concierge Section.
Even if you are not planning on moving in the near future, but are some planning some improvements, make sure they are the right things.
