当你要卖掉你的房子时,你想要最大化转售价值. 虽然你可以用今天的技术卖掉你的房子, 让你的房子获得最大的价值是最理想的转售方式.

幸运的是,确保你的家处于最佳状态并不是什么难事. There are many small attributes that many sellers neglect to recognize and lose out on money. 今天, we are going to cover five things you should do before listing your home to get the most money from the sale.

1. 确保它是干净的 & 气味免费

当一个潜在的买家走进你家, 房子的气味决定了他们穿越的基调. 潜在买家想要描绘自己的生活,而不是你的. 你做的狗、猫、食物的味道会让人倒胃口. 许多产品,如Febreze和Air Wick只是在一定程度上掩盖了气味. 香薰蜡烛是个不错的选择,但要明智地选择香味. 不是每个人都喜欢"香草蛋糕".

你最好的选择是使用能消除异味来源的产品. 含有酶的产品对分解尿液气味很有帮助. If there are multiple things contributing to the odor a product that neutralizes is the best choice. Neutralizing products destroy multiple causes, not specific types, like enzyme-based products.

接下来,你应该把重点放在房子的整体清洁上. Dishes and laundry should be put up, trash should be taken out, toys put away, and bathroom scrubbed. 记住,你希望潜在买家关注的是房子,而不是你的财产.

你还应该摆脱不需要的客人. 如果买家看到一只老鼠或蟑螂, they will most likely stop and run out the door without even finishing looking at the house. Buyers that see one mouse or bug will automatically assume that there is a major infestation, 即使没有.

A few weeks before listing your home call a pest control company to check for termites and eliminate pests. 如果你有白蚁损坏,最好在房子上市之前就知道.

 

2. 美化你的景观

外观吸引力是必须的! 景观美化不应该被忽视,因为它可能是买家参观的原因, 一开始. 如果到处都是杂草和藤蔓, 这很好地说明了内部可能发生的情况. 如果房子的外部需要维护,那么它的内部可能也是如此. Freshening the landscaping can be as easy as planting a few bright flowers in the front and adding new mulch.

你可以通过改变或装饰你的庭院和门廊区域来使你的景观焕然一新. 想想你的容器或装饰是否达到了标准. 你不会想要任何生锈的容器或褪色的装饰品.

你家的门口比你想象的更能吸引顾客. 确保修剪好所有的树木和灌木,让你的家看起来干净整洁. Getting rid of any visible algae or rubble from gutters and filters also contribute to the overall resale value of your home. 如果你的房子有壁板, taking time out to pressure wash and clean any dirt and debris is also beneficial to the selling price.

 

3. 修补破损的路面和混凝土

As mentioned above, maintenance needed on the outside usually means maintenance is needed inside. 景观美化工作完成后,你要从上到下环视一下这处房产. 如果路面或混凝土破损,需要处理.

You can fix small cracks in your concrete by simply filling them in with rubberized fillers. 确保裂缝不会给你的家带来更大的问题. 有时安装全新的混凝土会更便宜,更划算. 根据北岸铺路, 沥青承包商应该获得许可, 有经验的, 并受过良好的培训以确保高质量的结果. 再说一遍,你要把重点放在房子上,而不是缺点上.

The type of driveway and pavement you have determines what kind of issues you may have and what repairs you need to fix them. 随着时间的推移,混凝土会产生裂缝,而砖可能会碎裂. 鹅卵石是一种很容易维护和修复的材料,如果有问题. Weather is usually the cause of any cracks and complications you will have with your pavement.

你还必须考虑你的车库是否也需要修理. Garage floor coating can get dull and though it may seem like no one will look and care about such thing, 想买二手房的人想要感觉他们的家是全新的. Inserting garage cabinets will also help you organize any junk or items in your garage to make it neat for visitors.

 

4.  考虑家庭的改善或升级

如果你想提高住房成本,家居改善是至关重要的. 升级你的房子转售可能是昂贵的,但可以有很大的回报.

在家里添置一些时下流行的东西. Keeping your home up to date with the latest gadgets like Nest thermostat energy saving systems or the latest camera doorbell.

Lowering energy costs will save you money while you live there but help you gain money as buyers will see your home as innovative.

Putting a little extra focus on renovating your kitchen will grant you resale value at a great deal. Modern or contemporary styled kitchen renovations are always eye catchers and sometimes they are what sells the entire house. Bathroom renovations are a plus as well and contribute to the increase of your resale price. 升级瓷砖,水槽,浴缸等将吸引和保持你的买家的眼睛.

你也可以考虑给你的家添加新的油漆,室内外都可以. Painting your door and shutters with more vibrant colors will draw people’s eyes and make your home a unique buy. When painting on the inside it’s always good to start fresh and have a clean white or off-white colored home. You could also consider changing the current paint you have to help bring more color or to calm certain tones down.

不要在没有……的情况下开始一个项目。

Ensure what kind of work you want to do and research the contractors you need and their rates. 有些人可能会决定自己装修房子, 但如果你想用代码正确地完成某件事, 某些工作你必须雇用承包商

Whether it be outdoor renovations like a porch and deck or swimming pool in southern areas like Florida or indoor focused renovations in northern states like New York.

雇佣一个承包商

如果你做了调查,雇佣承包商会很简单. 对你的项目进行多重评估,并找到当地有高评级的企业. 查看他们最近的工作,看看他们在做什么,这很重要. You will be signing a contract so you don’t want to rush into a decision without reading details thoroughly. 你不想让自己陷入困境,所以问问周围的人来帮你做决定.

Make sure you understand the insurance that goes along with your contract and get details in writing. You want physical forms of information regarding every portion of your project and contract. Refrain from paying up front so you don’t fund a project that fails or if you don’t like a final result. You must also understand that there may be some delay with your improvements due to funding, 建筑规范, 和许可.

 

5. 清除杂物和舞台每个房间

清理杂物和打扫房间是两码事. 清理杂物就是把房间里不需要的多余东西都清理掉. 任何额外的相框或饰品需要存储.  这在厨房里也很重要. 大厨房增加了房子的价值. 把桌子上不需要的东西都拿走,比如搅拌器和对流烤箱.
