Exceptional NH Homes with Joanne Gerety Rice | Bedford NH Real Estate, Amherst NH Real Estate


As a home seller, it is important to do everything possible to ensure your house impresses buyers. If your residence makes a positive impression on buyers, you could speed up the house selling process. Plus, you may be better equipped than ever before to maximize your house sale earnings.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you transform your home from drab to fab and ensure your residence garners lots of interest from potential buyers.

1. Upgrade Your House's Curb Appeal

Your house only gets one chance to make a positive first impression on buyers. Fortunately, if you enhance your home's curb appeal, you can make the most of this opportunity.

Completing assorted home exterior upgrades may help you make your residence stand out to buyers. For instance, mowing the lawn and trimming the hedges will help you quickly improve your house's front lawn. You also may want to repair any cracked or damaged home siding.

2. Eliminate Clutter

There may be no time like the present to remove unwanted items from your house. Because if you eliminate home clutter, you can show off the full size of your living space to potential buyers.

To cut down on home clutter, you may want to host a yard sale or list unwanted items online. This will allow you to simultaneously get rid of unwanted items and earn extra cash.

You can always donate unwanted items to a local charity, too. Or, you can give unwanted items to family members and friends.

3. Clean Each Room of Your House

An in-depth home cleaning is a must, particularly for an individual who wants to enjoy a seamless house selling experience.

When it comes to cleaning a home, there are lots of options at your disposal. For do-it-yourselfers, you can allocate time and energy to mop the floors, wipe down countertops and perform other house cleaning tasks. On the other hand, if you want extra help, you can hire a professional home cleaning company.

As you search for ways to stir up interest in your residence, you may want to employ a real estate agent as well. If you have a real estate agent at your side, you can get the help you need to expedite the house selling journey.

A real estate agent knows the ins and out of the home selling journey and can help you plan accordingly. First, he or she will meet with you and learn about your home selling goals. A real estate agent then will put together a plan designed to help you achieve your goals without delay. And if you ever have concerns or questions as you navigate the home selling journey, a real estate agent is ready to respond to them.

Want to get your house ready for the real estate market? Take advantage of the aforementioned home selling tips, and you could reap the benefits of a fast, profitable house selling experience.

You may be thinking that your best investments are inside the home: a snazzy new kitchen, a spa-like bathroom or new wood floors, but you can actually get a high return on investment (ROI) if you focus on your home's curb appeal.

The first impression potential buyers have of your home is the outside. If you had to guess, what's the best purchase? If you guessed a garage door, you'd be right! Studies show that the recouped cost of a new garage door is usually around 97%, which means you basically get the whole amount back in home value.

Fixing Up the Outside

Before you go investing $4,000 in a new garage door, though, start by fixing up the existing features of your home. That means repairing or replacing vinyl siding, powering washing the outside and giving it a new paint job if necessary. Make sure windows and shutters are clean and without cracks or dings. Most importantly, if your roof is nearing the end of its warranty, or if you have known problems like leaks, now is the time to fix it. While the ROI on a new roof is only about 60%, roof problems can be a huge turn off for buyers, causing your home to sit on the market for longer and costing you more in the long run.

Landscaping

Start on your landscaping plan by cleaning up your yard. Get rid of the trash and yard debris so the yard stays presentable. If you have a green lawn, now is the time to review it. If your grass is growing well and covering the dirt, great! Keep it mowed and you are good to go. If your lawn is having problems, you may want to consider mixing it with other ground covering like gravel, recycled rubber or wood pellets. They are all much easier to maintain, especially in dryer climates not as well suited for grass. If you have empty or dying flower beds, now is the time to fill them up with seasonal flowers and bushes. These give you great color and make your home seem more welcoming to buyers. 

Before you start shelling out big money for upgrades, have your real estate agent review your home. They can suggest the best options for your market and price range, as well as provide accurate feedback about your home’s curb appeal. They may even have ideas for professional help to get your home in perfect selling shape.
