Tips & Advice for Selling your Home


Selling your home can be a strenuous and lengthy process, but it doesn’t have to be! With the influx of home improvement and buying/selling shows on television, there is little doubt that you have probably heard advice or have seen ways that potential sellers look to improve the value of their home. In the following post we have highlighted a few different ways you can improve the value and sellability of your home.

Choose the right agent

This should go without saying, but selecting the right agent that will help you present and price your home at the correct value is vital to the home selling process. Do your research, both online and by word of mouth, and select an agent that you believe has your best interest in mind. Choosing the right agent is the baseline for any home sale.

Maximize the light of your home

Lighting, Lighting, Lighting! Leaving the drapes open and letting in as much light as you can into the home can be very appealing to a home buyer. Light can provide energy to the room and make things seem more fresh and lively. Also, making sure that you have higher voltage light bulbs installed in light fixtures can work the same magic!

Leave little to no evidence of pets in the home

As much as we love our little furry friends, not every potential home buyer will. Before your show your home, make sure that you clean up any hair that has been shed or put away the litter boxes, leaving these things out for potential home buyers can create the illusion of a “messy” home.

Kitchen is King

In terms of home upgrades you can make to help sell your home and improve the value, nothing is more important than the kitchen! Renovating your kitchen and adding new countertops, fresh paint and replacing old appliances can go a long way towards helping increase the value and attractiveness of your home.
