Does the idea of selling your home feel overwhelming? I know the feeling! That’s why I have broken down the selling process into a simple, yet strategic four step method.⁣

If you’re considering selling your home, download my Simply Selling eGuide! ⁣

The first step in the selling process, is preparing your home for the market.⁣ If you’re like most sellers, you want to wow prospective buyers, but you don’t want to break the bank. And, getting your home ready doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag. ⁣

If you’ve got a few open weekends and a can-do spirit, you can knock out these cost-efficient upgrades in no time.⁣

• Paint the walls and trim. Smudgy walls and dingy trim are so out. Refresh both with calming, neutral colors that appeal to a wide range of tastes and preferences. If time is short, start with the living room and kitchen and then work your way to the bedrooms.⁣
• Refresh the yard. Fresh mulch, colorful annuals, and a couple of planting urns for the entryway make stellar curb appeal a cinch.⁣
• Clean, declutter, and repeat. There is nothing worse than a listing that’s dirty. Deep clean and declutter before your home hits the market. Later, when it’s time for a showing, it’ll just take a quick wipe-down to straighten up. ⁣

A quick word of caution: Before you spend one penny on home improvements, you’ll wanna talk with a realtor familiar with your market. They’ll have extensive knowledge of in-demand upgrades that’ll help you get top dollar in your neighborhood.⁣
