If you currently own a one story home that includes an attached garage and workshop and would like to sell your residence prior to moving across the country to begin a new career, the following tips will help you attract potential buyers.
Have Minor Repairs Made
Walk through your home, the garage, and workshop and visually inspect each structure to determine if any repairs are needed. Pay close attention to outdoor features as well, including gutter systems, roofing materials, and siding. Write a list of basic repairs that can be made that will help improve the residence and increase your chances of selling your home.
Obtain estimates for the repair work by contacting several contractors in your community. If any repairs that are needed can be performed with basic materials and you have the knowledge to complete the work, save money by handling the repair tasks on your own.
Complete Cosmetic Upgrades
Cosmetic upgrades, including adding new shelving units in rooms, adding fresh coats of paint to walls or ceilings, and installing new lights in various parts of your home will provide your residence with an appealing atmosphere and will demonstrate to interested buyers that your home has been taken care of. If you normally follow a hectic schedule, set aside one day each week to perform the upgrades that you have chosen.
Avoid becoming overwhelmed by focusing on one room at a time and completing one cosmetic upgrade in entirety before tackling an additional project. With perseverence and determination, you can noticebly improve the appearance of the inside and outside of your home, garage, and workshop.
List Features And Take Photographs Prior To Meeting A Realtor
Write a list of key features that your home and adjoining property possess. Include details about materials that your home, garage, and shop are constructed of, lighting fixtures in each room, heating and cooling systems, and recent upgrades that were made. Add information about outdoor amenities, including a pool, sauna, deck, or garden. Include dimensions for each room in your home and features that are on your property.
Browse through photo albums that you have created since you purchased your home and select several photographs that display your home and property in a favorable manner. Use your camera to take new pictures of your home's interior and exterior and adjoining buildings that are on your property. Provide a realtor with the list of features and photographs so that they can design an attractive listing for your residence and property.Share
