...Please say you saw it in the YAMHILL COUNTY REAL ESTATE GUIDE -- 9
     When listing your house for sale, your top goal will be to get the house sold for the best price possible! There are many small projects you can do to ensure this happens.
Improve Curb Appeal
√ Give your entry a facelift with either a new coat of paint or new front door.
√ Don’t’ forget to landscape your yard! A well groomed lawn shows buyers that the home was taken care of. √ Make sure all exterior lights are in working order & replace all outdoor light bulbs.
√ Wash all windows (inside & out) - you don’t want to take away from a great view with dirty windows.
√ Clean out your garage! Consider getting a storage unit to store any non-essential items.
√ Depending on the weather, add a pop of color by planting flowers.
√ Remove any lawn ornaments that you will want to bring with you to your new home.
√ Replace worn out welcome mat to welcome buyers as they tour the home.
√ Paint or replace street numbers on the house making them more visible.
√ Power wash any outdoor surfaces to give them a “like new” feel (ex: siding, sidewalk, driveway)
Making your house feel like HOME to Buyers
√ Clean everything! A clean home allows buyers to picture themselves in the space & not distract them. √ Give every room a purpose - giving it an identity will help buyers.
√ Let the light in! Bright rooms feel warm & inviting - dark rooms feel small & gloomy.
√ Fix anything that is broken! Buyers will notice & may offer less for your house if repairs are required. √ De-clutter your house! Show how much room is actually available.
√ Fresh paint & new carpet are the top 2 things you can do to help sell faster & for more money. √ Organize the kitchen! Store any non-essential, small appliances & clean all surfaces.
√ Empty all trash bins & hide dirty laundry before home is shown.
√ Make sure all doors open & close smoothly. Fix any squeaky doors or closets.
√ Replace light bulbs & make sure all switches work.
