Small Projects – Big Impact
How to prepare your home to sell for top dollar in today's hyper competitive market.
The housing market is more competitive than ever, with most buyers looking for nearly turn-key properties. It is up to us as agents to get your home market-ready, while maximizing the return on your lifelong investment. There are many high impact and high return items we can address to make that happen.
Below are some of the more common improvements to sell your home faster, for more money, by attracting more buyers.
- New or refinished flooring
- New or refinished countertops
- New light fixtures
- New cabinet and door hardware
- Professional cleaning
- Window and screen cleaning
Know Your Market
Although many of these items seem like common sense, you want to partner with a team of professionals who know what the current local design trends are – these trends may be different depending on your local market. For example, gray walls are common in the East Bay while they are not in Marin or San Francisco. For optimal impact, we first need to know our market.
Similarly, white paint can range from warm (red or beige undertones) to cold (blueish)! Depending on the color of your floors or finishes, selecting the wrong shade of white could give you a mismatch that you won’t see, but buyers may sense.
Stage to Impress
Just as important, professional staging is highly varied. Make sure you know what the finished package will look like. Ask for examples of previous stagings. Great staging will increase the number of interested buyers, which is the key to maximizing our marketing outcome.
