7 Things To Do Before Selling Your Dallas Texas Home

Are you thinking about selling your Dallas Texas Home this year? If so, you’ve come to the right place.2016 is going to be a great year for you to sell your home because more people are expected to move to Dallas and that means homes will be in demand like last year.In this post I will share with you 7 things you should do before selling your Dallas Texas home, especially if you want to sell it for the most money. 

 #1 – De-Clutter Your HomeThe first thing to do before selling your Dallas Real Estate is to de-clutter your home because de-cluttering will enable you to remove the excess nick knacks, furniture and items that you’re not using regularly and ultimately highlight the space that your home has to offer.

 #2 – Repaint Your HomeRegardless if you repaint the inside or outside of your home you should consider repainting your home because repainting is a great way to clean up your Dallas home and make it appear fresh and inviting to home buyers. 

 #3 – Improve Your KitchenSince kitchens and bathrooms are the rooms that people spend the most time in you should improve your kitchen by doing the following: repaint your kitchen cabinets, change your cabinet drawer handles and knobs, purchase matching appliances, replace flooring in your kitchen, add a backsplash and consider adding new granite counter tops.

 #4 – Remove the Carpeting from Most of Your HomeIn the 2016 Dallas Texas Real Estate market most home buyers are searching for homes with hardwood flooring so if your home has lots of carpeting you should consider removing the carpeting from the living room, family room and hallway then replace the carpeting with hardwood flooring.Although most buyers are searching for hardwood floors throughout the home they like to have carpeting in the bedroom so consider replacing the carpeting in the bedrooms or adding a large area rug if you replace the carpeting with hardwood flooring in the bathrooms.

 #5 – Refinish Your FireplaceIf your home has an aging brick fireplace that looks like it’s seen better days consider replacing that old brick with a new brick facade or at the very least you should power wash then repaint your fireplace so it looks new and inviting.

 #6 – Clean Your Windows Another important thing to do before selling your Dallas Texas Home is to clean all of the windows in your home inside and out before listing it because the windows to your home will be the first thing that buyers will look out of and if they see dirty windows buyers will wonder what else may be wrong with the home. 

 #7 – Improve Curb AppealLast of all, but most important, focus on improving the curb appeal for your home by planting new flowers, trimming trees or bushes, reseeding or fertilizing your yard, painting your front door and mailbox.These curb appeal tips are important because first impressions matter and will influence people to get out of their vehicles and tour your home or not.Sell Your Dallas Texas Home.
