Everyone wants to sell quickly and for top dollar, but it doesn't just happen automatically. There are a few different things that need to happen in order for you to sell for top dollar.


Curb appeal: Your home needs to look attractive from the outside if you wish to draw buyers inside for a viewing. Spruce up your yard and make it look as neat and clean as possible.


Declutter your home: The things that you've collected over the years may be appealing to you, but they'll just be distracting for the buyers. The idea is to create a blank canvas in your home by removing as many personal items as possible.


Neutral paint: Strive for a uniform paint scheme in your home. Don't leave a bathroom painted red or a laundry room lime green. Buyers don't like to see that. Lighter colors and earth tones seem to register well with buyers.



Flooring: If you can't make your carpet look brand new after cleaning it, then I suggest that you have it replaced. Installing new carpeting will almost always earn you your money back.


Clean your windows: Buyers like to see natural light pour into your home, so make sure that the windows are extremely clean. You should even take off the screens so more light can get inside.


Staging your home can have a big impact: Home stagers can make your home feel like a resort. This will get buyers to pay more money. A lot of sellers probably think this is too much work, but getting your home staged will almost always get you your money back, and then some.
