How to Prepare Your Home for Sale


When you decide to sell your home, there is one important thing every seller wants. This is for the house or any property to sell fast and at the best price possible. So for that to happen, you need plan carefully and prepare your home well so that many buyers are attracted. There are various ways in which you can prepare your home for sale in Bergen County. Here are some of them:

  1. Let go your home

You have lived in this home for some time now and have become attached to it. It might be difficult to let go but you have to. You can do this by;

  • Making the decision to let go and focus on the fact that the house is no longer yours.
  • Standing in the doorway and remember all the memories you made then say goodbye to every room.
  • Not looking backwards. Focus on the future, sell the house and forget.
  1. Make repairs

Having many repairs can break your sale. To avoid this, you can do the minor repairs so that when it comes to pricing the house, there won’t be much problem between you and the buyer. Some of the minor repairs you can do are such as;

  • Fix doors that do not close properly.
  • Paint your walls especially with neutral colors.
  • Patch and fix holes in walls.
  • Replace cracked floor and tiles and fix the leaking faucets if there are any.
  1. Make the house attractive

One of the ways to make the house look attractive is by doing a thorough cleaning. Cleaning the house involves;

  • Cleaning the cobwebs.
  • Washing the windows both on the inside and outside.
  • Waxing the floor.
  • Dusting the furniture among others.
  1. Scrutinize curb appeal

By scrutinizing curb appeal, it means making the buyer walk out of the car and come see the house. You can do this through the following ways;

  • Keep the sidewalks clean and clear.
  • Mow the lawn.
  • Trim the bushes inside your home.
  • Paint the faded window trims.
  1. Remove your favorite items

Before letting the buyer in to see the house, you need to remove your favorite items so that he or she doesn’t see them. If the buyer happens to see the item and you inform him or her that she can’t have the item, she could blow and ruin your deal. Remove them and replace them if possible but make sure the buyer does not see them.

Ken from Cash Buyer NJ was a pleasure to deal with. I filled in and sent the online questionnaire, Ken called me ten... minutes later, we made an appointment and two hours later he was at my house. Ken did his due diligence and in two days we agreed on the price. The sale was as is so I only moved what I wanted and left the rest. The closing was completed on time. Ken is honest, and a gentleman who you can take at his word. The whole deal couldn't have gone smoother!read more

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
