Do you plan on selling your house?
Here are some quick tips on how to prepare your home for sale.

Step #1: De-clutter. Have most (if not all) surfaces within your home clear of photos, knickknacks, books and dust so that all surfaces shiny. Especially the kitchen counters. Everything off. Take off all magnets and their holdings from the fridge too.
Step #2: Pack what you have de-cluttered into boxes clearly labeled.
Step #3: Purchase extra storage and move the little pieces of furniture, winter clothing and those personal treasures into it.
Step #4: Make a list of minor repairs and check them off as they are completed. For the larger items like replacing tile, painting or other upgrades give us a call at (973) 984-5600 and we can have your project done quickly and cost effectively.
Step #5: We recommend painting rooms a more neutral color if they are too loud or bold a color. Bold paint colors are a distraction to potential buyers and they cannot see the room size or visualize their furniture with that color.
Step #6: Curb appeal is a buyers first impression! Wash windows, add colorful flowers, make sure the house number is legible from the street and mow/rake the lawn.
Step #7: Ask a realtor for a value assessment so that there are no surprises when you try to sell your home yourself or need a realtor to.
