Best Things to do When Preparing Your Property for the Market

We care to prepare!  

In this episode of MRE Scoop, Lincon discusses  a number of things you can do to prepare it for the market. By taking some time to make improvements or a few fix-up jobs, you can prepare your home to impress buyers and sell at the best possible price. Check it out! 

If you're getting ready to put your home on the market, here are some of the best things you can do to prepare:

1. Landscaping

One of the first things potential buyers will see when they pull up to your home is the condition of your landscaping. If your lawn is overgrown or your flower beds are full of weeds, it's not a good first impression, no matter how nice the inside may be. Spend some time sprucing up your landscaping before putting your home on the market. You can do it yourself by power washing the exterior of your home, trimming your hedges, and planting fresh flowers. Or ask our agents, we know some of the best landscapers in the business. .

2. Decluttering

Get rid or pack away any personal items or excess knick-knacks that make your home feel cluttered. Make your home feel as spacious as possible so that potential buyers can envision themselves living there. This can be a difficult task, but it's worth it in the end. You can also ask our team to help, and we’ll bring in a professional staging company to help you declutter and arrange your furniture to really impress the buyers. 

3. Painting

If your home is in need of a fresh coat of paint, now is the time to do it! A fresh coat of paint can work wonders when you're preparing your home for the market. It can brighten up a room and make it feel more spacious. When choosing a paint color, stick with neutral tones that will appeal to a wide range of buyers, and make sure to repair any cracks or holes in the walls before you start painting.

4. Lighting

Good lighting is crucial for showing off your home's best features and making it feel warm and inviting. If your home feels dark and gloomy, consider replacing some of your light fixtures. This is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to brighten up your home and make it more appealing. Take advantage of natural light by opening curtains and blinds, and consider adding some additional lighting fixtures if necessary.

5. Styling

Once you've taken care of the basics, it's time to add the finishing touches that will make your home stand out. Arrange furniture in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional, and add a touch of decor for styling.. Again, we recommend hiring a professional stager to help you style your home, and make it look fantastic for Open Homes and viewings.
