Fall Time Home Selling

Fall can be a surprisingly good time to sell your home, as buyers scramble to get into new homes before the holidays arrive. If you decide to take advantage of the fall market to sell your home, taking the time to prepare it for buyers can help you get the best price possible. From cleaning away clutter to considering new shutters in San Jose, here are some ways to get your home ready for the real estate market. San Fransisco - Homes

Create a Blank Canvas

Many buyers have a problem envisioning what a home will look like without all of the personal items that belong to the seller. Make an effort to create a blank canvas in your home. This means considering putting some of your items in storage and even repainting rooms that currently have bold colors. Neutral colors for walls and carpets and minimalist décor allow buyers to picture what the home would look like with their own personal touches.

Update Appliances

Home buyers don’t expect to move into a house with brand new appliance, but if your current appliances are significantly outdated, investing in a new model could be worth the expense. This is especially true if your appliances are so old that they use significantly more energy than newer appliances or if they are clearly in their final days. Buyers will be reluctant to make an offer on a home that is going to need a new water heater or dishwasher in the first year without taking that extra expense into consideration.

Invest in Vinyl Shutters

Shutters are an often-overlooked way of boosting the value of your home. In reality, buyers often seek out homes with shutters they love, such as plantation shutters or California shutters, so that can move in with the look they want already in place. This one-time purchase gets your home ready to sell right now or several years in the future, and they will increase the value of your home whenever you decide to put it on the market.
