The first thing you should do after deciding to put your Salt Lake City home on the market, is to get your house ready to sell. A clean, well maintained home appeals to more Salt Lake City buyers and will sell faster, for a higher price.
Experienced Salt Lake City real estate agents can advise you on the amount you should spend to get the most from your dollar and how much you can expect to recoup in the sale.
Take an objective look at the exterior and curb appeal of your home. Potential St. George buyers decide within the first few seconds of looking at the outside whether or not they want to go inside. With just a few seconds to make a good impression, the exterior is worth spending money on.
Painting shutters, doors, and trim in an attractive complementary color can boost curb appeal and make your home look fresh. If necessary, replace your old door for extra impact. Make sure the new door is sturdy, well insulated and meets fire code.
Remove dead or dying plants, shrubs, and trees. Plant new vegetation or call a professional for sprucing up your landscaping and pruning shrubs or trees.
If you have a porch, add some new furniture, or add a fresh coat of paint to existing furniture. Make sure the entrance looks welcoming and neat. Add a new walkway, steps, or interesting planters to make your St. George home stand out.
Take a second look at the mailbox and decide if it needs repainting or replacing. Take care to repair any cracks in the driveway concrete or asphalt.
