Selling your House

We at Upkeep can help you sell your home.

The first step to preparing a home for sale is to “let go” of your emotional attachment to your home and focus on the fact that soon this house will no longer be yours.

First impressions really do count when you are selling your home. A prospective buyer take 20 seconds to appraise your home and  to have as few obstacles as possible for a buyer to see you house as their new home.Women make most of the house-buying decisions, and their emotional reaction is key – if they don’t love the house, they will not buy it.

We can help you de-Clutter and de-Personalize your property. People collect an amazing quantity of stuff they don’t always need, consider the idea, if you haven’t used it in over a year, you probably don’t need it, so keep it, donate it, or chuck it out.

When showing your home, it will always looks better with less furniture, so when the re-organising is going on why not rent a storage unit to put some of your larger pieces of furniture, while the sale is in progress..

After the madness of the de-clutter then comes the big clean. Making the house shine is a great way of making a good impression on the prospective buyer.

Clean carpets, curtains and, get rid of all the cobwebs, wash windows, mirrors, front door. Do some of the small repairs jobs re-caulk bath tubs, showers and sinks re-grout tiles, do some painting. Polish wooden floors chrome faucets and mirrors. These small jobs really make a difference when selling your home.
