20 Inexpensive Tips To Get Your House Ready To Sell In The Spokane Real Estate Marketplace

20 Inexpensive Tips To Get Your House Ready To Sell In The Spokane Real Estate Marketplace

  1. Give your entryway a facelift with either a new coat of paint or a new front door. 

  2. Don’t forget to landscape your yard. A well groomed lawn shows buyers the home was well taken care of.

  3.  Make sure all exterior lights are in working order and replace all outdoor  light bulbs.

  4. Wash all windows, inside and out. You don’t want to take away from a great view with dirty windows!

  5. Clean out your garage. Consider getting a storage unit to store any non-essential items.

  6. Remove any lawn ornaments that you will want to bring with you to your new home.

  7. Replace a worn out welcome mat to welcome buyers as they tour your home.

  8. Paint or replace the street numbers on the house, making them more visible.

  9. Power-wash any outdoor surfaces, such as siding, sidewalk and driveway to give them a “like-new” feel

  10. Clean everything! A clean home will help buyers to picture themselves in the space and not distract them. 

  11. Give every room a purpose. Even if it is a bonus room, giving it identity will help buyers. 

  12. Let the light it! Bright rooms feel warm and inviting. Dark rooms feel small and gloomy. 

  13. Fix anything that is broken. Buyers will notice and may offer less if they notice the need for repairs. 

  14. Declutter your house. Thinning out your closet and pantries will show how much room is actually available. 

  15. Fresh paint, trim and carpet are 3 things that will help your house to sell for more money. 

  16. Organize the kitchen! Store any non-essential, small appliances and clean all surfaces.

  17. Before your home is shown empty all trash bins and clean any dirty laundry.

  18. Make sure all doors open and close smoothly. Fix any squeaks on bedroom or closet doors

  19. Replace lightbulbs with new ones and make sure all switches work.

  20. Free your home of any odor! Bake some cookies or light a candle. It will help the buyer to remember the sweet smell of your home.
