- 1) Take care of an major repairs. Are you still working on repairs from the Spring 2011 Hail Storms? If so, take care of getting the roof fixed, the gutters replaced, and any other major repairs that could deter any potential buyers. In this current market, many buyers do not want to take on any major repairs, unless the home is priced to sell that way. So, if you want the best asking price for your home, take care of the repairs before putting your home on the Knoxville market.
- 2) Give your home some curb appeal. Make sure the outside of your home makes people searching for homes in Knoxville want to buy it. How should you make it stand out from the rest? Mow the grass. Pull the weeds. Keep the yard free of debris and random clutter. And even, plant some flowers or put out some pots with flowers to make your home more inviting. A little effort can go a long way when it comes to selling your Knoxville home.
- 3) Do a deep clean and keep it that way. Potential Knoxville Home Buyers don’t want to be moving into a mess. Take some time and do a deep clean of the house. Take care of cleaning windows, dusting hard to reach places, or get the carpets cleaned. That way, potential buyers can imagine moving into a clean, inviting home.
- 4) Make sure major appliances work. Make sure the doorbell works, the oven doesn’t look like it is going to give out, or the furnace sounds like its not going to make it through another winter. Deal with that leaky faucet or frayed cord. Again, buyers don’t necessarily want to have to put money into a house they are just purchasing unless it is priced that way.
Organize, organize, and reorganize. Take the time to de-clutter you closets and other areas of your home. It will make your home feel neater and more inviting to potential Knoxville home buyers. Not to mention, if you are planning on moving, it will make your move that much easier.
A clean, organized home and yard can make all the difference to potential buyers looking at homes for sale in West Knoxville. If there is anything I can do to help selling your home easier.
