What can we do today to get our home ready to be listed next year?
Clean, declutter, fresh paint, and look after all of those items on the old chores list.
It is often plain old elbow grease that is needed. If you have the time, be sure to work on these few items first. Buyers appreciate good quality, well-constructed, well-maintained homes. And believe us when we tell you, we can tell if a home has been loved and cared for. Buying a home is very emotional, and ensuring that buyers 'feel' good about the home is crucial.
If you have made a decision to sell your home in the next year or two, spending money on a new kitchen or an addition may not be worth the effort. If a kitchen has good quality wood cabinets, getting them professionally spray painted will give you that updated fresh look you are looking for, at a fraction of the cost. Sometimes it is just a new counter in the bathroom that will give this refreshed look. New fixtures, updated switch covers, door handles - there are many small things that can be done that don't cost much money. We can tell you from experience that an organized, well-maintained home (indoors and out) will go a long way to a successful outcome. Call us at 905 334 9422. We are happy to walk-through with you and offer our suggestions.
