A fresh, clean look with great landscaping


Getting top dollar when selling your home is a top priority and there are some simple things you can do to achieve this.

Here are 6 great tips!

  1. Roll up your sleeves and do the following:
    • Clean, de-clutter, and when you think you’re finished, clean and de-clutter some more.
    • Ensure all closets and kitchen cupboards are organized and clean.
    • Clean windows inside and out (dirt on windows shows even in professional photographs).
    • If your walls need painting choose an inexpensive paint and paint in neutral tones. You might like lime green walls, but most buyers won’t.
    • Replace burnt out light bulbs.

  1. Make sure your home has great curb appeal. During warmer months keep the front lawn manicured and all bushes and hedges neatly trimmed. In colder months, make sure your driveway and pathways are clear of snow and that all dead brush has been removed.
  1. Strong odours can be extremely off putting. Make sure your house smells its best. No pet odours or smokey smell for example.
  1. If you have a mortgage, contact your lender to determine whether or not there will be a penalty if you have to break your mortgage.
  1. If any repairs are needed, do them before you list. Whether it’s a leaky roof, faulty furnace, or an issue with an appliance … get it fixed. Buyers tend to double or triple when calculating the cost of a repair or defect.
