Are you planning on selling your Austin Texas home? If so, you come to the right place!
The Austin Texas real estate market is on fire right now as demand for properties remains high and mortgage interest rates continue to remain historically low. These two factors have continued to make real estate in the ATX area irresistible to buyers.
Before listing your home, your goal should be to sell it for top dollar and you can do that by following these simple tips.
Tip #1 – Paint
It’s been a while since you painted your home, now is the time to add a fresh coat of paint inside and out because paint can literally ‘clean up’ the look of a home and make it look fantastic to buyers.
During the process of painting your home, focus on going with neutral colors because your goal as a seller should be to present your home as a product that somebody wants to buy. Neutral colors will remove your decorating style from the home and make it easier to sell.
Tip #2 – Declutter
The next thing that you can do to get your home ready for sell for top dollar, is to declutter.
De-cluttering is essential when selling a home because of the simple fact that removing excess items from a home makes the rooms in that house look a lot larger than they are.
If you’ve never decluttered your home before, it’s easy, all you have to do is to go through each room in your house and create piles for things that you want to donate, keep, and throw away.
For the item that you intend on keeping, you should immediately box those items up and store them in your garage or a local storage facility. This will make it easier to remove those items from your home and help you to accomplish the goal of decluttering rather than continuing to keep a bunch of items in your home that you don’t need right now.
Tip #3 – Curb Appeal
Last of all, but most important, another important thing that you should do before listing your home for sale is to focus on improving curb appeal.
Improving curb appeal is important because it’s the first thing that buyers are going to see about your home when they pull up to the front of your house so if your goal should be to make the best impression possible
Focus on removing dead grass, flowers, plants or debris and choose new plants that are ready to bloom because your goal should be to make your home as appealing and attractive as possible to buyers.
