How To Get Your House Ready For A Showing In Athens

If you’re planning to sell your home, a little effort now can make it sell quicker and at a better price. It could even make the difference between a sale or your house languishing on the market unsold for months. And it doesn’t have to cost a lot either, usually just a little elbow grease. So let’s see how to get your house ready for a showing in Athens.

Start With Curb Appeal

First impressions are hugely important, and you never get a second chance to make a great first impression. So put plenty of effort into improving your home’s curb appeal as the first part of getting your house ready for a showing in Athens. For the outside of your home is the first thing prospective buyers will see when they pull up for a viewing.

Improving curb appeal will involve lawn care certainly – mowing, raking leaves, trimming shrubs, weeding and mulching beds – and maybe even some minor landscaping. You will also want to get all the clutter out of the yard and maybe into a rented storage unit. And don’t forget to touch up paint on your home’s exterior.

Declutter Ruthlessly

The next most important step in getting your house ready for a showing in Athens is decluttering with a heavy hand. And don’t just cram all that stuff cluttering up your home into the closets. Buyers will poke into every corner, including closets. It’s usually a good idea to rent a storage unit to put your clutter in for a time so that your home will look clean, neat, and inviting.

Concentrate on the Kitchen

Traditionally, the kitchen is the biggest selling feature of any home, so effort invested there to get your house ready for a showing in Athens will be well spent. You can start with cleaning to make all the kitchen surfaces, especially countertops, sparkle. If the cabinet doors are dull or scuffed, it might be a good idea to touch them up or refinish them. And if any appliances are terribly outdated, you should probably consider replacing them.

Make Bathrooms Sparkle

Next in importance to buyers after the kitchen are the bathrooms. And there’s quite a bit you can do to improve the looks of a bathroom without spending a ton of money on it. Clean first, making sure to eliminate all traces of mold, and then regrout tiles where needed. New faucets are fairly inexpensive and will add a lot of sparkle, as well as getting rid of the annoying drip buyers will find unappealing. Maybe you don’t want to replace toilets, but just installing new seats will help.

Eliminate Odors

An often neglected, but important nevertheless, an aspect of getting your house ready for a showing in Athens is eliminating odors, especially offensive ones. Many people are sensitive to odors, so don’t try to cover up smells with strong air fresheners. Shampoo carpets, and if you have to, replace carpets in rooms with the worst odors. In addition, we often become accustomed to what we live with so you might have a friend walk through and do an odor test.

Getting your house ready for a showing in Athens is time and effort wisely spent. Making a great first impression is immensely important for converting a potential buyer into an actual buyer and then closing. But to make the most of your efforts, you will need to understand what is important to buyers in your local market. And that’s where we can help. Just contact us today at 706-426-1082.
