Hello and thank you for tuning into Red Lion Realty’s YouTube channel. The topic of discussion today is going to be preparing your house for sale. We did five mistakes sellers make a couple weeks back, we had huge response, a lot of people reached out to us and asked us for additional information. We’re going to start with landscaping in the front yard. We want to make sure that the trees are cleaned out. A lot of times, the trees are overgrown and you can’t see the front of the house, you want to make sure that they’re cleaned out, groomed. You want to have fresh mulch around them so you’re not looking at roots, plant some fresh flowers, you want to add a little bit of color to the property. You want to pressure wash the sidewalks. Fertilize and use ironite on the yard if you can, it depends on the time of year. If it’s summer through fall, ironite fertilization will give you a nice deep lush green color, and it’ll make your yard stand out. Take a look at the property, does it need painting? If so, do it, it will save you money, because if it’s painted, it’s just one less thing for the buyer to complain about or the inspector with rotten wood or anything. Fresh paint and caulk goes a long ways. The front door, that’s the area of first impression when they walk in. Does it need a fresh coat of paint? Does it look faded? does it need fresh stain? You know, and again, just a little bit of money upfront will save you can make you money on the backside of it. Have a roofer inspect your roof. If there’s any missing shingles, it can be tended to before the inspection if there’s any flashing that needs to be tended to, it can be tended to before the inspection. It’s going to save you some headaches, it’s gonna save you some money in the future as well. Most roofing companies will do a free roof inspection, generally they’re going to find a couple hundred dollars worth of stuff, but it’ll stop the buyer for asking for a couple thousand dollars worth of repairs.
