The Ultimate Guide to Preparing Your Home for Sale
As you think about listing your home for sale in the Mid-Missouri areas of Boone, Callaway, and Cole counties, you will want to be sure that you are doing everything you can to present your home in its best light. To do this, you must be able to take an objective look at your home from a buyer's point of view. After living in your home it can become easy to overlook things that could make or break an offer. Investing some extra time, in the beginning, to really prepare your home for listing photos and showings will typically increase the likelihood of receiving offers soon after your listing goes live. Putting the extra work into deep cleaning, maintaining, replacing, or freshening up your home will make the home more appealing to buyers, minimizing your time on the market, and maximizing your return.
This can seem like a lot, and it is totally normal to feel a little stressed and overwhelmed at this stage in the process. You can simplify the job by tackling one room at a time using this handy checklist! Your goal should be to make your home look as new as possible. If you are short on time, you should focus on cleaning and de-cluttering as your top priorities. The checklist below will help you to be able to see your home fresh through buyer's eyes.
