Improve Your Home In 10 Minutes or Less

Every little thing can add up when you are selling your home.  That’s why you can’t skip out on the fixing the little things before you list your home.  Not every project has to be a big one though.  Here are ways that you can improve your chances of selling in 10 minutes or less.

  • Make the beds – No one wants to see crumpled sheets or think about someone else sleeping where they may be sleeping in the future.
  • Clean off the counters – put the dishes away, empty the sink of sponges and soap, and make sure every horizontal surface is clutter free.
  • Wax or use throw rugs to hide small flaws in the floors.
  • Fold everything in the linen closet.  It’s an important space and you want it to look as big as possible.
  • Put away coats, shoes, umbrellas.  Be sure they are tucked away neatly a closet.
  • Check that all the light bulbs are working and replace any that don’t.  Buyers may think that it’s an electrical problem instead of a simple fix and brighter homes sell faster.
  • Remove anything you don’t want people to see.  Remember, a buyer may be more conservative than you and will be looking through the cabinets and closets.  Don’t leave out anything that would embarrass you or that someone wouldn’t want to see.
  • Clean the toilets.  People will use them.

It’s a big process to sell your home, so make sure you don’t miss the little things.  Remember to take one item at a time and you’ll be surprised how quickly you can get through it all.  For more tips and tricks to sell your home faster for more money get a free in-home consultation by calling Helen at 847.967.0022 or email [email protected].
