Ready to Sell? Hints to Market Your Home

Written by
In order to sell your home, you should walk through your home, looking at your home through a buyer’s eyes. First impressions stay with buyers. The first step is probably not your favorite, but is one of the most important. Your home should be clean, sparkle, and smell great. Tackle one room at a time. Remove all clutter, including the closet floors. How can a buyer expect all of their clothes and shoes to fit in a closet if your wardrobe does not fit? Get rid of clutter on shelves and furniture and then dust. Clutter makes a room feel smaller, and prospective buyers focus on your belongings instead of your home. In the bedrooms, make your bed every day. Put away most toys and games leaving out favorites. Bathrooms should be spotless and smell great. Remove wet towels from the floor, declutter the countertops, and do not leave toys in the tub. Clean your walls. Consider painting your walls a neutral color if the walls are bright colors. Do not paint the walls white. Curb appeal first attracts a buyer. Clean the yard; rake leaves, remove bicycles and toys. The front door should be clean. Arrange plants in the front entry; red and yellow plants attract buyers. Patios, decks, and porches need attention. Remove debris, clean, and remove clutter. Clean the furniture and display fresh plants. Getting your home ready to sell, before placing your home on the market is an important step in selling your home quickly for market value.

Tiny Houses in the Roanoke Valley Yes, there are tiny houses in the Roanoke Valley. Heaton Real Estate, Inc has a tiny house for sale in Halifax County. But why, you wonder, live in a tiny house? A tiny house usually has 250 to 500 square feet, consisting of living areas including a kitchen, a living area, and a bedroom. Some tiny homes have several rooms, and some are open like a studio. But they are tiny. To someone that does not live in New York City and expects more space, you may wonder why live in a tiny house? Saving money is one of the reasons to buy a tiny house. As a tiny homeowner, there are many ways to save money. First you save on the price of the tiny homes. Many are less than $50,000, but allow you to move away from renting. You save money on taxes, insurance, energy (heating and cooling), home maintenance, and shopping. It's unnecessary to shop for unneeded items when you are limited in storage.  That also leads to a higher quality of life. There is less involvement in acquiring and keeping "stuff". You must make decisions on what to get rid of and what to keep. You declutter your life before you move into a tiny house. Less time is spent cleaning and maintaining a home. Because there is less space, there are less things to clean around. And less space to clean. There is more time to spend on other activities; traveling, sports, recreational or outdoor fun. Of course you are being"green". Tiny homes use less energy, have less of a carbon footprint, produce less waste, and consume less resources. All of these add up to being environmentally friendly.
