Preparing Your Home to Sell

Are you preparing to put your home on the real estate market? If so, there are many steps you need to take to get your home ready. It is the first impression that is so important, and so your home needs to be clean and presentable both inside and out to get the interest of a potential buyer. At Immaculate Clean, our experts are here to help. We provide quality cleaning services that will make your home sparkle and impress anyone who walks through your doors.

The Exterior

The exterior of your home is what will initially attract your potential buyer. It is very important to keep the outside of your house well maintained, starting with any necessary landscaping. You should also check your driveway, steps, walkways, foundation, and other exterior areas for any noticeable damage. The front entrance to your home is also especially important, as this is where buyers will pass through. Finally, ensure that your roof does not need new shingles and that your gutters are clean. These may seem like small details, but a potential buyer will be carefully scrutinizing every aspect of your home. The beauty of your exterior is just as important as the interior.

The Interior

When it comes to the interior of your home, the most important aspect is to keep it very clean. Your home should have zero clutter. Potential buyers want to be able to envision themselves living in your home, and that can be difficult to do with personal clutter. This will also help you get a head start on packing, as you can start throwing away items that you do not need or boxing them up for storage or a yard sale.

Along with removing clutter, you will need to have an inspection and make any necessary repairs in your home. All of your plumbing, electrical work, heating and cooling systems, and appliances should be in good working condition. For repairs, check the paint in all rooms, replace any damaged flooring, and check windows and doors.

Finally, it is always advisable to hire a professional cleaning service such as Immaculate Clean. You will want to keep your home tidy, clean and dust free for all showings, and this can be exhausting. Groomed carpets are sure to impress potential buyers as they walk through your home.
