Fixing to Sell
A Home Improvement Checklist for Sellers
Inman News Report
Two steps forward and one back, the real estate market is lurching its way out of its worst depression in decades. You're thinking about selling -- if not right now, then in the next year or two. You want to be ready when the time is right. You know that you will take the usual steps to prepare your home for sale. You'll declutter, depersonalize and make sure it sparkles. But then you take a good hard look and your critical eye doesn't like what it sees.
The kitchen and bathrooms are drab and dated, the paint is peeling, the deck is drooping, and that popcorn ceiling and wallpaper is oh-so '70s. Come open house time you're going to need more than trimmed bushes, neutral colors, new carpet and the smell of fresh-baked cookies.
Tackle some or all of these projects and it's a good bet that your house will sell more quickly and at a higher price. Or, you may just decide to live in your "new" home awhile longer. The 10 articles in this report will help you to choose and prioritize your projects, buy your supplies, and get to work.
This 16-page report, available as a paid PDF download, features 10 articles.
