How to Prepare Your Home

Time to sell?

Preparing your home is one of the most important things to consider if you want top dollar. Buyers are looking for the WOW and we know just how to help you deliver it. In all of our experience, we have been able to compile a checklist of some of those repairs and finishes that make your home desirable.


Let’s get started!


Fix up that loose fencing, clean the roof, and repair the deck. If your home needs a fresh coat of paint, do it. It’s amazing what a few cans of paint will do for curb appeal. And don’t underestimate the landscaping. Mow the grass, prune overgrown bushes and trees and remove all debris; you’ll have the outside looking like brand new in no time.



Clutter is one of those eyesores that turn buyers away almost instantly. Start packing early and get rid of all the extras. Making your home feel spacious is a great sales point. Repair grout on all countertops and showers and repair any damage on the walls. Once that is finished, time to get out the paint again for that clean crisp feel.



Plant some extra flowers if your yard is in need of some color and use air fresheners inside for that final finishing touch.
