Ready to Move? 5 Things to Fix Up to Sell Your Home Faster

Most people are unable to move until they sell their home. Since this is the case, many people want to be able to sell their home quickly, but how can you? Well, there are some things you can do to prim your home and help push it a bit quicker than if you did not do any of these things.

Below, we will go over some of the different fix ups that you should perform to your home. You be happy to see it finally off the market.

  1. Landscaping

Who wants to live in a home where the lawn is up to their knees? No one wants to feel like they are hiking through the Everglades to get to the front door. With this said, it is important that your home’s front and back lawn look nice and are attractive to the eye.

If your home’s lawn is not maintained or you do not have any plants or grass, it will be much harder to unload the home on someone else. If you want to get rid of the home quickly and not worry about the landscape, maybe you can provide the home buyers with a credit to help them purchase sod or services to improve the yard.

  1. Driveway

When you are trying to buy a home, would you want to see bikes, lawn equipment, and toys on the driveway and in the yard? Of course not. You need to make sure you pick up your driveway and lawn, so that people will not avoid your home.

  1. Foyer or Entry Way

Your entry way or foyer is one of the most important parts of your home because it sets the tone and mood for the homebuyer. You should make sure this area is decorated appropriately and is not too cluttered with objects and items.

  1. Kitchen

If you have an outdated kitchen, you may want to think about upgrading it. 1970s cabinets are not going to cut it and an old dilapidated fridge is not going to fetch you the most money for your home. You should think about investing in your home and remodeling the kitchen to include new countertops and appliances.

  1. Bathroom

Just like the kitchen, your bathroom needs to be updated and look nice. No one desires the pink, blue, or green bathrooms from the 70s and 80s. Your bathroom should not only look nice, but it should have all of the amenities that someone would desire such as a showerhead, low flow toilet, etc.

In a nutshell, the less money you put into your home to fix it up to sell, the less money you will get for your home. No one wants a home that they have to make a ton of repairs to and if they do, they are not going to pay your asking price to turn around and fix it up. If you are unsure about what needs to be changed around your home, ask your realtor.
