Getting Ready to Sell Your Home in Oklahoma City

Getting Ready to MoveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Planning to market your residence ahead of moving to Oklahoma City? We've got superb advice regarding must-do tasks and staging methods for when it's time for an open house.

For you to sell your residence quickly-and for your full asking price-you’ll want to do a bit of preparation work to begin with. While a few prospective buyers will be in the market for a “fixer upper” or maybe really do not mind handling a small amount of DIY projects, an improperly staged or cleaned house can be quite a serious turnoff. Naturally, when it appears to be like you didn't deal with the surface work (such as painting and up-to-date windows), exactly what does that suggest regarding the condition of the home's innerworkings?

You don't need to pay lots of money getting your residence “show-worthy” before marketing and moving, however, it is best to take a couple of weeks to get everything in ideal shape. Here is how.

Curb Appeal: Initial opinions make a difference, particularly when selling a residence. There is something about vivid, thriving plants along with a striking entrance door that makes a home feel inviting immediately. In case you only carry out a single item concerning home prep work, make sure it is the outdoor area. Mow the yard, sculpt the bushes, pressure wash the outside, and/or put up a new paint trim. And even a new welcome mat makes an impact.

Depersonalize the Area: Certainly, the pictures of your family are what makes your residence into a home. Even so, the stuff that help you feel comfy and warm inside are certainly not standard. Considering that you will have to pack everything up before you move at any rate, take this opportunity to put your photographs, knickknacks, along with other personal things away. In terms of promoting a home, less is best.

Stress the Closets: Something just about all prospective homebuyers would like more of is storage space. A residence with additional closets is a real edge. In case you might not have awesome closets, maximize them by cleaning them, painting them in a brand new white layer, and adding extra shelving. An ample, uncluttered closet can make a significant difference.

Open the Windows and Doors: Take advantage of milder temperatures to bring fresh air and light inside. In cool temperatures, use fragrant candles, or cut apples, sprinkle them with cinnamon, and cook them on low temperature just before an open house.

Repair the Big Item: Most of us have one-that significant, costly repair that’s been postponed for a long time. Possibly it’s a new roof or possibly a current heating and cooling system. Perhaps it’s a kitchen area that has not been remodeled in more than two decades or floor covering which really should be redone. Even though these types of improvements may be expensive, you are likely to obtain a fast return, particularly if you emphasize this improvement included in the marketing package. (In case you do not have time for this sort of thing, you may want to offer a purchase allocation for the new buyer to get it done themselves.)

Remove any Valuable Items: Having potential buyers roaming in your house at all hours during the day could be terrifying, especially if you have got things out that might be easily pocketed. Take away little, treasured items and keep them in a safe or your safety deposit box. Ensure that prescriptions aren't available to open house guests.

When your property is on the market, do not neglect to do day-to-day care. Doing a clean sweep of your home each day is essential when it's being shown to potential buyers. Spend a few minutes each morning making the beds, dusting surfaces, running a vacuum cleaner around the flooring, and emptying the trash cans.

And, when you have a buyer arranged, it’s time to commence planning moving to Oklahoma City. Make contact with A-1 Freeman Moving Group, we will help!
