Inexpensive Ways to Get Your Home Ready to Sell in Utah

Inexpensive Ways to Get Your Home Ready to Sell in Utah

April 20th, 2015 | Home Renovation, Home Selling Tips

You want to sell your Utah home, but you don’t have a lot of money to invest in repairs and upgrades before it hits the market. You’re in luck! There’s a lot you can do to make your home more inviting to potential buyers that don’t cost a fortune. Here are some fairly inexpensive steps you can take before you list your home:

Clean the carpets. Investing in a professional carpet cleaning can be a great move, especially if you have small children and pets. Stained carpets aren’t exactly aesthetically appealing, and carpets can harbor all kinds of odors.

Make small repairs. Little things that aren’t right can make home buyers wonder what larger things may be wrong with your home. That’s why it’s always a good idea to fix things such as a leaky faucet, a missing roof shingle or a broken door handle before your home hits the market.

De-clutter. Reducing the amount of furniture and other items in your home can make your rooms look bigger. When trying to decide which items should go, consider giving anything that’s stained or broken the boot.

Clean walls. Handprints and dirty walls are a definite turnoff. Clean your walls, using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (or the same type of product) to get rid of scuffs and crayon marks. If your walls are really in bad shape or you went crazy with colors a few years ago, consider adding a fresh coat of paint.

Clean, clean and clean some more. Aside from the cost of cleaning supplies, elbow grease is free! A home that’s clean is more inviting to buyers, period.
