Make Sure Your Kitchen is Fully Up to Code

One of the first places that a potential home buyer will want to take a look at is your kitchen. So it's a matter of the highest importance that this area be clean and presentable. If the wallpaper is faded or tacky, it's time to replace it. If the sinks are rusty, leaky, or otherwise in bad shape, get new ones. Rip the sink out if you have to. If the floor is not in the best condition, you may have to replace that as well. These are all relatively easy repairs that can be completed in a reasonable amount of time.

 

Make Sure Your Bathroom is Completely Ready to Show

The next area of your home that a potential buyer will want a good look at is your bathroom. This is another area where a few simple repairs will do you a world of good. Just like in your kitchen, your major concern will be with the fixtures. If your sink and taps look tarnished, leaky, or rusty, replace them. If your tub won't respond to a good cleaning, it may be time to replace it as well. Pay special attention to the state of your floor tiles and wallpaper.

 

Make Sure Your Lawn is as Attractive as Possible

Of course, the very first area of your home that a potential buyer will see is your front lawn. This is an area that you need to pay special attention to. Always make sure that your lawn is nearly mowed and groomed before you show your house to a new buyer. The first impression you want them to have is of a neatly cut, fresh looking lawn. If you have any bare or brown patches, touch them up immediately. You should also replace any paving stones that are missing on the path to your front door.

 

Make Sure the Interior of Your Home is Properly Staged

If you don't want any of your own property to be in the house when it gets shown to a potential buyer, you can hire a professional staging service. They will supply stock furnishings to make the house look "lived in." Staging your home will also save you the ordeal of having to worry about careless visitors spilling things on your sofa and then scuttling away with no fear of reprisal. You can ask your local real estate agency to take care of this task on your behalf.

 

Make Sure Your Home is Listed with a Real Estate Service

There is one final thing that you will need to do to ensure a quick and profitable sale. You will need to have your home listed with a reputable and professional real estate service. This is an absolute necessity in the modern world. Sure, you could do the "For Sale By Owner" thing, but how long will you sit there waiting for your home to sell? Listing your home on the web is the better way to go. The sooner you do, the sooner you can plan to pocket the money and move on to your next location.
