If you’re thinking about selling your home in Vero Beach, you’ll want to make sure it’s ready for buyers to fall in love with before you list it – but you can only do that if you’ve tackled these three essential tasks.
3 Little Things You Have to Do Before You List your Home
Check out these three tasks you need to handle before you list:
- Clean and declutter your space
- Tackle small repairs
- Boost your curb appeal
Let’s take a closer look at each.
#1. Clean and declutter your space
Buyers want to see that a house they’re interested in buying is clean and easy to maintain – and you can help them see that (even if cleaning isn’t your favorite way to spend a day) by making sure yours is spotless and in good repair.
We often recommend hiring a cleaning company to do a one-time deep-clean in the house before you list it. That way, you only have to maintain what the cleaning company has done while your house is on the market.
#2. Tackle small repairs
Minor repairs, like a leaky faucet or a scratch in the wall, need to be fixed before you list your house. Also:
- Replace caulk around the tubs and sinks
- Repair grout if necessary
- Replace damaged window screens
- Replace burned-out light bulbs
#3. Boost your curb appeal
Buyers start forming their first impression of your home when they pull up on the street in front of it – and you need that impression to be so good that they carry it into the house with them. Boost your curb appeal by:
- Mowing the lawn
- Trimming bushes, shrubs and trees
- Repairing or upgrading gutters and downspouts
- Cleaning the concrete and repairing cracks
