Getting Your Home Ready For Market

If you’ve been thinking of selling, now is the perfect time. It’s a seller’s market through and through. Two weeks before you list your home, follow these vital steps in upping the attraction and value. Come to Caskey & Caskey, and we’ll take care of everything. 

Curb Appeal
Help buyers fall in love at first sight with fresh landscaping and inviting exterior spaces. New flowers, clean outdoor pillows, and doormats create a welcome exterior

Clean, Clear + De-Clutter
Marie Kondo has her own show for a reason. The less stuff in your home, the more the bones, architecture, and unique features shine to potential new owners. Clean like the Queen is coming, from baseboards to ceiling corners. Clear closets, storage rooms, and garages. If it doesn’t lend to the buying experience, get it out. 

Easy Updates
Quick fixes offer an unparalleled return on investment. Minor repairs, paint, and professionally cleaned carpets deliver tenfold. Pay extra attention to the kitchen and bathrooms, including new countertops, hardware, or appliances. Most buyers are looking for a turnkey property; if you do the work for them, you’ll see the big bucks. 

De-Personalize
Buyers want to envision themselves living in your home, not experience what your life was like there. Create a blank canvas by removing pictures, keepsakes, and pretty much anything that makes it look like people live there. 

Staging
Stagers are experts at highlighting home attributes, maximizing space, and enhancing beauty. They paint a picture for potential buyers with high-quality furniture, feng shui, and minimalism. We work with the finest staging companies in the South Bay; their design eye will take your home from “meh” to marvelous.
