If you’re hoping to make a move to Salmon Arm and leave 2020 in the dust then follow along as I provide you with tips on how to prepare your home for sale in 2021!
Prepare your home for sale so you can find the best Salmon Arm real estate!
After a long winter, where many of us were literally forced inside, it’s time to take stock of the damage! Grab a notepad or an iPad and start making an honest checklist. Walls might need repainting from the added wear and tear on your home. Painting is an economic and easy way to spruce up your Salmon Arm home for sale this spring. That’s because painting is a double problem solver, it hides odor as well as dirt and grime.
Bring the Outdoors In
Another great tip to help prepare your Salmon Arm home for sale is to hire a professional exterior cleaning company. If you don’t have the budget to hire a team to pressure wash, clean the gutters and polish those windows, then we encourage you to grab a ladder and do what you’re comfortable with. Even a quick spritz of glass cleaner on the inside of your panes can go a long way in upping the sparkle factor.
Cleaning up your exterior grime and shining your glass will increase your chances of selling your home and finding the best Salmon Arm real estate in the future!
Curb Appeal is Incredibly Important
After a long, cold winter where we saw significant storms hit us in the Okanagan it’s a good idea to survey the impact on your property. Throw on some boots and a warm coat and take a walk around the perimeter of your house. Look for damage to any structure itself and bring along a trash bag because there will likely be some items that have blown through that will need to be removed.
Once you’re ready to pull the trigger and get your home on the MLS, then you should also consider the following advice in order to get into the best real estate in Salmon Arm.
Spruce Up Your Frontage
This is a great way to show potential buyers that your home has been taken care of and is worth a closer look. Add some colorful live plants and flowers to your front door in planters. A new welcome door mat along with a quick clean of the surrounding walkway will also indicate to Salmon Arm buyers that you have maintained your home.
Look to the future and get a jump on packing!
Oftentimes as sellers we can become attached to our homes. Since they house a lot of memories homeowners can build up a significant amount of sentiment. Sellers in this position might be encouraged to do a few things to get past the grief of leaving behind a home they’ve loved for so long:
- Look forward to the future – especially after this past year! 2020 was hard! Moving on will produce a whole new set of great memories!
- Consider getting a jump on decluttering your home. If you want to find the best Salmon Arm real estate then this is very important! Buyer’s want to imagine themselves in the space. By decluttering you can give them a clean look at everything your home offers! So go ahead and get a head start on packing – even before your first showing!
