Preparing to sell your home in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle is so much more than agreeing on a listing price and putting a For Sale sign in your yard. In fact, setting yourself up for a successful sale comes long before you've even officially listed your home in Jefferson or Berkeley County. Now is the time to make sure your home is in tip-top condition for the many buyers who may arrive for a look inside and with just a few simple tasks, you can both intrigue buyers and boost your property's value.
The Kable Team is happy to share three important tasks below that can boost your home value and bonus, without breaking the bank!
Conduct a deep cleaning
There is nothing that will turn off a buyer quicker than a dirty home. This prompts buyers to wonder what else you've not been tending to inside the property! So whether you do it yourself or hire a professional cleaning crew, a deep cleaning is almost mandatory if you'd like to spark interest in today's buyers. You will want to tend to baseboards, vents, cabinets, cabinet hardware, blinds, ceiling fan blades and even doorknobs. Clean windows, rid appliances of grime and fingerprints, shampoo carpets, and replace any broken window screens. It's important to be thorough with this deep cleaning to ensure your home presents its best self.
Make your kitchen shine
Bathrooms and kitchens are two of the most important spaces to today's homebuyers and they will be looking for those with an updated feel. But that doesn't mean you need to take on an entire kitchen overhaul! Just giving your cabinets a new coat of paint, changing out cabinet hardware, or even installing new fixtures like a new sink and overhead lighting can make a big difference.
Brighten your home
Dull lighting can make a space feel closed off, small and uninviting. Be sure to change out any dim lightbulbs before buyers arrive, replace outdated light fixtures, and even replace outlet covers. You'd be amazed at how an old outlet cover can date a room, while replacing them typically only costs around a few dollars!
