Seller's Guide Step 2 - Prepare
There is more competition than ever in the current Ocean City real estate market. Before putting your property on the market you will want to make sure it is a home that people will want to buy.
Take a good look around your home to determine where it needs improvement. It is important to address glaring issues and known defects so your property shows its best.
Some fixes will be simple cosmetic items that you can likely handle on your own. Other items may be more significant and require the services of a professional. Below is a list of the common fixes that provide the most benefit:
- Spruce up the lawn
- Get carpets cleaned
- Replace light bulbs
- Powerwash the exterior
- Organize closets and drawers
- Clear out clutter
- Clean, clean, clean
- Paint in neutral tones
- Simplify decor
- Minimize personal effects
