Happy New Year guys and girls! Now that the ball has dropped and the hangovers have passed, it’s time to get back to business – for both first time home buyers and first time sellers! The real estate market waits for no one and 2014 already looks to be as big a year for housing as 2013 was!
We’ve talked at length about what buyers can look out for in, or how they should go about navigating, the Salt Lake City real estate scene to find a home best suited for them, but we haven’t forgotten the sellers either! After all, you guys are half the equation. And with the housing recovery ensuring that home sales will continue going up in 2014, knowing what to do to get your home in sellable condition is key!
So for those homeowners looking to put their property back on the market this year, Houzz has supplied some helpful tips for selling your home that will get you the most bang for your buck:
- Have a realtor look it over: Getting a qualified and experienced Salt Lake City real estate agent to check out your house is an easy way of getting some keen insight into what features buyers are really interested in and how you can best capitalize on them.
- Lawn upkeep: Curb appeal is buy appeal, and there are few things you can do to make a worse first impression than by letting your front lawn and backyard fall apart. Laying new sod, planting bushes or gardens and regular lawn mowing can go a long way in keeping your property looking good for prospective buyers.
These are just a few relatively easy ways you can boost your home’s value and get the most of your sale.
