3 Ways to Prep Your House for the Market

We said it before and we’ll say it again….now is the time to sell in Charlotte! With the hot spring/summer market underway, there has never been a better time to sell in the Queen City. Aside from calling your trusted team of agents at Premier Property Solutions, there are a few things you can do to prepare your house for the market that will help speed up the process.

1. Declutter. This is a great time to do an inventory on all of your stuff! Rid your house of any unwanted items and maybe you’ll even make a few bucks on Craigslist. The goal is to remove all of the clutter from your house because, when it comes to showing your home, sometimes less is more. Don’t forget to organize closets, drawers and cabinets as potential buyers will often check out storage space.

2. Deep Clean. This is often a time-consuming process but it doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank! Get the entire family involved if possible and start cleaning room by room. Clean your base boards, scrub your cabinets and make your windows sparkle. It’s important to utilize as much natural light as possible so pay special attention to the cleanliness of important rooms like your kitchen and bathrooms.

3. Spruce up your yard. Curb appeal is so important especially during this time of year. Spend some money on new mulch, landscaping and a few flowers. Maybe you need to add a fresh coat of paint to your door or repair a broken front porch step. You’ll want buyers to be charmed by the outside of your house which will be the first impression they get so make it good.
