When you’re selling your home, whether it’s in Uptown Charlotte, Mint Hill, South Park, or Ballantyne, you need to prepare it for the market.
But short of hiring a professional home stager, how are you supposed to do that?
How to Prepare Your Home for Sale
When you’re ready to put your house on the market, your Charlotte Realtor® will talk to you about what you need to do to get it ready. Here’s where you can start.
Make Your House Less Personalized
It’s time to pack up family photos, quirky décor, and other items that make your house uniquely yours. You want buyers to envision themselves living in your space, not spending time trying to figure out what kind of people you are.
If you haven’t used something in the past 6 months, do you really need it? If you do, that’s fine—but you need to put it in a box and ship it off to a storage unit. You want your home to look spacious and roomy, so full cupboards and cluttered countertops need to go. Take more than half your clothes out of your closets, too.
Make Minor Repairs
If there are little things that need to be fixed, fix them. If you can, repaint your walls in neutral colors, too. Replace lightbulbs, tighten the faucets, and patch up any holes in your walls before you start inviting buyers in.
Clean, Clean, and Clean Some More
Everything in your house needs to be spotless. You want it to show buyers all its best features, but they can’t see them through dust or dirt.
