Maximizing Your Home Value



Are you ready to list your home for sale? One of the first questions you might have is, how can I maximize my home value?

Every seller wants to get the best possible price for their home; fortunately there are ways to make sure your potential buyers see the true value of your property and allow you to receive top dollar when you sell.

  • Clean, declutter, depersonalize
The first thing every home seller needs to do is take a critical look at the home and clear out the distractions. Cleaning the home/yard is a must. Remove anything that can draw a buyers eye away from the beauty of the home.

  • Redecorate

Professional home stagers will often advise clients to remove and/or replace furnishings. Even if you love oversized furniture, it can make the room look small; consider renting more neutral pieces during the listing.

  • Perfect Condition
No home is perfect, but before you list take care of deferred maintenance issues. Replace missing roof tiles, repaint any area that is worn or dirty, and re-sod your lawn; remember; buyers want to know the home has good bones.

  • Update carefully
Its not important for home sellers to have the latest countertops or custom bathtub to get a good value for their home. Often the home updates/improvements sellers undergo cost more than they would lose in sales price without them. If your home is very dated, consider a seller credit instead to allow the buyer to choose their own upgrades.


Homes retain value based on a few factors; the location, the condition and the features. Before you list, speak with your agent, friends and family then make any necessary repairs and changes to ensure you get the best value for your home when you sell.
