Highland Mills NY Real Estate – How to Get Your Home Ready for sale

Are you thinking about selling your Highland Mills NY Real Estate but you know that your home needs a little work to get it ready for sale? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

In this article I will share with you 5 tips that you can use to get your Highland Mills New York home ready for sale.

Tip #1 – De-Clutter Your Home

Decluttering your Highland Mills New York Real Estate will be an easy process especially if you follow these steps:

Step 1 – De-clutter only one room at a time since this helps to eliminate overwhelm when decluttering.

Step 2 – Create three piles in each room for items you want to keep, donate and throw away.

Step 3 – Box up all items you want to keep and place those items neatly in your garage or storage.

Step 4 – Remove all large pieces of furniture from each room in your home including big flat screen televisions or entertainment units because your goal with de-cluttering is to showcase the space that your home offers buyers.

Tip #2 – Clean Your House Thoroughly

After de-cluttering your home it’s now time to clean your Highland Mills New York Real Estate thoroughly from top-to-bottom including hard to reach areas like kitchen cabinets and the top of your refrigerator because, you never want to underestimate the ability of a buyer to find dirt somewhere in your home and if they find dirt they will wonder “what else is wrong with this home?”.

Tip #3 – De-Personalize Your Home

Success! You’re getting closer to listing your Highland Mills New York Real Estate for sale and the next step in the process is to de-personalize your home.

This step involves repainting the inside of your home and removing wallpaper, choosing neutral colors for bedding and removing family photos or other items that show you’ve made your mark on the home over the years because the goal is to turn your Highland Mills home into a “product” that any buyer will be able to see themselves in.

Tip #4 – Send Your Pets on a Holiday

Yes, we all love our pets but the reality when it comes to selling your Highland Mills New York Real Estate is that there may be some buyers who don’t love pets as much as you do so when it comes time to show your home you should consider sending your pets to a friend or family member until the agent and buyer have completed the showing.

Tip #5 – Fix and Repair Your Highland Mills Home

Last of all, but most important, another important thing you should do when getting your Highland Mills New York Real Estate ready for sale is to make repairs to your home before listing it because anything from a non-working light switch to a broken gutter outside your home will ultimately lead the buyer to submit a lower offer because they will know that your home needs work.
