Inventory is low and now is an excellent time to sell if you have been thinking about moving into a larger home. Even when inventory is limited, preparing your home before it goes on the market is key to a quick sale. We can be your guide when it comes to readying your home, but here are some terrific tips to help.
You likely already know that you should declutter, thoroughly clean, and remove your personal photos, but it is important to understand that buyers may notice things that you overlooked. In order to increase opportunities to attract that perfect buyer for your home, follow these five steps to give your home every advantage in the marketplace.
Fresh paint.The exterior of your home is the first thing that potential homebuyers see, so it is important to make sure that your curb appeal is in tip-top shape. If you have any spots that need touched up, now is a great time to do that. Applying a fresh coat of neutral paint to interior rooms where there is a bold color palette is always a good decision. While this may seem like a lot of work, it could make all the difference to a potential buyer, as they may not have the same tastes as you.
Clean screens, windows and air vents.We sometimes overlook the dirt, lint and dust that can accumulate in window screens and air vents. Vents can be cleared of dust by using a vacuum, and screens can be removed and sprayed with a hose to remove dirt. Cleaning windows both inside and out can have a big impact, and buyers will want to see the view outside from every room.
Replace light bulbs.Few things can make a living space look smaller than dim lighting, so spruce up with new bulbs. Be certain to replace any bulbs that are burnt out in chandeliers and double check all bulbs on the exterior as well.
Fill in the cracks.Wood expands and contracts, which can cause cracks in painted doors and trim. You'll also want to look for small cracks in your drywall, especially in ceilings where drywall tape can lose it's stickiness. Filling the cracks with caulking material and repainting will make them disappear and rejuvenate the detailing of your home.
Pressure wash.Sidewalks, walls, home siding, and porches that are dust & stains can be a serious eye sore for potential buyers. Take a trip to your local hardware store and rent a pressure washer to boost curb appeal.
Buyers are looking for homes that have been well maintained and are in good condition now more than ever before. When your house is listed for sale, everything you do to make it stand out from the competition will be to your advantage. Hopefully these tips will give you the advantage when you sell and your house and you will spend only a short amount of time on the market.

"Chelsea Anderson is a superb Realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable, experienced with the local areas and professional. I was located in Virginia, with the one exception on the house hunting experience, everything was handled either electronically or phone. She was highly responsive on all my issues/concerns. She was excellent in coordinating with all involved from the initial home selection to closing. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone buying a home in Arizona. "
