All about homes sale in Toronto
I suggest the following checklist be used to maximize your home's value:
Repair all minor issues, inside and out.
Obtain quotes on major repairs (new furnace, water heater, etc).
Thoroughly clean, dust and polish all surfaces, including windows.
Clean window coverings and remove any dated styles.
Polish all light fixtures and replace bulbs.
Clean all appliances. This is important if they are part of the sale.
De-clutter rooms, counters, closets, garage, drawers and cupboards. Remove coats from closets and store off-site. (This is a time when less is more -- making your home feel larger with ample storage.
Steam-clean all carpets.
Paint walls that are a vibrant or themed colour, to a neutral tone.
Ensure your yard is cared for. Curb appeal is the first impression.
Consider repainting your front door. This is not a big investment, nor an obstacle to the purchaser if the colour isn't quite right.
Once these are done, review your market research and see if additional renovations are beneficial to not only securing a sale but ensuring the investment is profitable.
You don't want to simply break even; you want to make money from your efforts.
