This post is part of a series on roll off container rentals and preparing your home for sale. If you haven’t already checked out part 1, I recommend doing so before continuing.
It’s a common belief that you can – or should – make upgrades to increase the sale price of your home. However, it’s worth taking this advice with a grain of salt. It’s easy to start sinking more time and money into upgrades than they’re really worth. That being said, what can you do to help make the best impression on a potential buyer?
Cleanliness is King
Rent a roll off container or get some junk hauling services from R&R containers and get that yard cleaned out. Your front yard and the exterior of your home are the first thing potential buyers will see — and you won’t get a second chance at a first impression! It’s also a good idea to sterilize the space of your personal items — family photos, kitchy decorations, etc. You want people to be able to imagine themselves living in your home, and a bunch of photos of your kids are going to ruin that illusion for them.
Hit the High Traffic Areas
If you are going to sink some money into renovations or upgrades, the high traffic areas are the place to put that money. The kitchen is number one. In most markets, upgrades like stainless steel appliances and granite countertops will help your home command a premium price point. Keep R&R containers in mind if you need a roll off container rental for your project! It’s also important that any repairs or maintenance your home needs are done before you list it. Buyers generally don’t want to spend their time and money bringing a house up to snuff, and the little things could definitely come into play when it’s time for your home to be inspected.
