Edmonton Real Estate Market Update:

Getting your house in good condition before you sell can demonstrate pride in ownership and quite possibly get you a higher sale price for your home. A home that is visually appealing and in good condition will attract more potential buyers, particularly those driving down the street.

A good rule of thumb - try to view your home through a prospective buyers eyes. - Are the lawn and shrubs well maintained? - Are there cracks in the foundation or walkways? - Are the gutters, chimney and walls in good condition? - Are garbage and debris sorted out of sight? Strong curb appeal will lure potential buyers inside....then you have to live up to their expectations. there are lots of easy improvements you can make to your homes interior walls without incurring major expenses. A major cleaning is mandatory. Your widows, floors and bathroom tiles should sparkle. Shampoo dirty carpets and clean tubs and showers. If possible give the exterior and interior a fresh coat of paint. Next, get all mechanical systems serviced by qualified contractors. Service your air conditioning system, clean your furnace, repair plumbing leaks, correct any electrical switches or outlets that are not working. Most people buy a new home because they have out grown their existing house. Create more space by eliminating excess furniture and removing unnecessary clutter from the garage, basement and closets.

Before you put your home on the market you may want to arrange for a home inspection. This will help the sale process. Cosmetic changes do not have to be expensive. Costly home improvements do not necessarily offer a good return on your investment when you sell. Anything that says "this home has been carefully maintained" will help you get the price you want.
