First Steps to Take When Preparing Your Home for Sale in the New Year

historic home front viewPlanning to sell your home in the New Year? If so, it’s time to start making preparations. The ultimate goal is to get as much for your home as possible and to sell it in a reasonable amount of time. To make this happen, you may need to make some improvements to your home. Some items may be simply cosmetic, others may be more involved, but from a fresh coat of paint to heating installation in Burlington, NC, all of these steps are important.

  1. Consider curb appeal. First impressions are everything when it comes to selling your home. A potential buyer has to be pleased with the look of the home from the moment they pull up to the curb. Take the time to tidy up the front of your home and lawn and make any exterior improvements that may be necessary.
  2. Evaluate the condition of your home. This is the time to make sure your home does not have any major structural issues such as a faulty foundation or a roof that needs replacing. If anything major needs to be done, you can go ahead and take care of it ahead of the sale or plan to negotiate the price of your home or other compromise to allow the buyer to take care of these things.
  3. Have your HVAC system inspected. Your heating and air conditioning system is a key factor to potential buyers. Have a reliable HVAC company inspect and tune up your system. If there are any major problems they will be discovered through this process. If not, you can prove to interested parties that your system has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired by professionals and was found to be in good condition.
  4. Go ahead with heating installation in Burlington, NC. If your HVAC system is found to be in less than stellar condition or if it is beginning to show signs of age, it may be in your best interest to replace it before selling your home. An old or failing furnace or air conditioner can be a deal breaker for house hunters. While it is one of the more expensive home improvements, a new HVAC system can help potential buyers to overlook other issues with your home.
