One of the biggest mistakes that we see sellers make is to hold off on the maintenance of their home when trying to sell.

- Sump pump

To make the transaction go as smoothly as possible and allow buyers to envision themselves in your home you need to take care of inspection items before putting your home on the market. A solid and clean home inspection with give both you and the buyer peace of mind and make this stressful recess much easier in the long run.

Upgrades and Improvements
You may want to spruce up your home if you plan to put it on the market but wait before spending those hard-earned dollars. We have found with this solid market that buyers are looking to have a clean slate to start with and want to customize their home to fit their needs. It is tempting to add a colorful paint palette or complete a bathroom update, but we have found these do not get you the best return on investment unless your home is damaged or faulty. Stick to just replacing any outdated or dingy pieces and possibly painting with neutrals and leave the rest to the new buyers; they may thank you with a larger offer.
