Sell Your Home Faster and Make More Money

by Sherri Smith

Getting ready to sell your home this spring? It may seem a daunting task to get everything in order, but there are some basic things you can do to make sure you get the most money from the sale of your home. Here are a few tips to consider.

First Impressions

Sometimes buyers will drive by your home before asking for a showing, so make sure to tidy up the yard. Mow the lawn, plant blooming flowers, power wash the siding and walkways and wash the windows. If needed, repaint the outside of your home. In doing so, this will give a good first impression to anyone interested in your home.


Get rid of all the extra stuff! You want buyers to be able to imagine themselves living in your home. They are unable to do this if all they see is clutter. This includes family photos and artwork.


Make those floors shine and the windows sparkling. This is an important step. Hire pros if you need help. The extra cost is worth it in the end.
