Are you thinking about selling your home in Atlanta or in the metro area? If yes, it's time to get moving and put your home on the market while the weather is nice and the summer heat still hasn't quite set in. We realize this doesn't give you much time, but we are here to help you move swiftly and effectively and get your home listed in the "prime time".
Before you list your home, take a moment and read these few easy suggestions to get your home sell-ready in no time. Just follow these simple guidelines, work with an experienced Atlanta agent, and sit back and watch as people clamor to get a look at your home.
Slap on a coat of paint
There is nothing like fresh paint on the walls to liven up a home. Paint over the darker and more daring color walls and keep all walls a neutral hue. Painting is essential and makes a big difference in the first impression of a home.
Light bulbs, light bulbs, light bulbs
Stock up on light bulbs. Really stock up. When you show your house, you want to keep all the lights and fixtures turned on. Trust us, the extra bulbs will come in handy.
Think spring cleaning on steroids. Whether you decide to do it yourself, or you opt to hire a company, your home needs a deep cleaning. If you do decide to take on this task yourself, get started now because there should be not a spec of dust in sight. The deep clean means scrubbing your bathrooms, toilets, and countertops, vacuuming all floors and rugs and perfectly wiping down all surfaces. Be prepared to get down and dirty for this clean.
If you want to get your home ready fast, there is no time to go through all your items. That is something you can do after your home is sold. Instead, find a storage unit close by and lock in a good rate. (Many times you can find great deals on the internet including a month free.) Move everything that is not needed and that is personal to the unit and put it out of your mind for the time being. The small investment in the storage is well worth the peace of mind.
