What You Need to Know Before Selling Your Home

Everyone wants to sell their home for a large profit, but unfortunately, it can take more than luck to make that happen.

Use the tips from PDX Restorations to prepare your house for a stress-free sale!

What should you look for when doing a thorough clean?

Before your house gets shown be sure to do a deep clean.

  • Check the carpets

  • Repaint the walls

  • Clean the windows

  • Remove any obstructions

Essentially, anything that people will touch or see upon first viewing the home should warrant some extra care. The key is to make the space clean and neat so potential buyers can visualize how they will live in it!

Who can help you sell your house?

When looking to remodel or do home projects before a sale, be sure to consult with a real estate agent, an interior designer, and a contractor.

  • A realtor can tell you what buyers are looking for.

  • An interior designer will help make a design fit the existing home.

  • A contractor will tell you what is and isn’t possible and put a number to the ideas.

To get the most bang for your buck, don’t do it alone; be disciplined and listen to the professionals.

What can a contractor do for you?

Kitchens and bathrooms are the top “wow factors” for potential buyers and contractors can help you with the remodeling process.

  • Prioritize a kitchen remodel as kitchens are frequently the heart of the home.

  • Then, move to the master bath, then the kids bath, and then the guest bath.

A contractor can also help identify items on the exterior of the home that may need fixing. Consider freshening up the garage doors, investing in that fresh coat of paint, and filling any cracks. The exterior of the home is the first thing buyers see and what will draw them in for more!

What not to do before you sell your home?

Here’s what we recommend not doing before putting your home on the market:

  • Do not personalize your home! Stay away from custom paint colors and instead opt for neutral, light colors.

  • Do not invest a lot of money in custom pieces such as doors, windows, or flooring as many times when a buyer moves in they will replace those again anyways.

  • Do not try to do things alone if you are unaware of current trends, instead look to your real estate agent for advice.

Do not leave broken appliances in the home as this can leave a bad impression on future buyers.
