Spray WD40 on all hinges so everything operates smoothly. Clean windows inside & out. Potential buyers will be estimating their energy costs, so fix drafts by re-caulking windows and replacing exterior doors if necessary.
A fresh coat of paint will instantly transforms any space, helping it to look neat, clean, and up-to-date. Fix imperfections like cracks and nail holes before painting. Steam clean carpets and runners and repair any chipped or loose floor tiles.
Be mindful of the odours left behind by pets and smokers and consider using an environmentally friendly room fragrance to neutralize unpleasant scents. Replace light bulbs and/or add light fixtures in dark hallways, basements, garages and closets.
First impressions are everything. Many people will simply drive by a listing and make a decision based on the home’s curb appeal. Maintaining a neat and attractive exterior to your home will show buyers that you take pride in your property. Keep the driveway clear of debris, lawn mowed, leaves raked & garden beds neat.
