That’s why ensuring your home is in as “move in” condition as
possible is so advantageous. It will help sell your home faster and,
often, for a better price.
So what does “move in” condition mean? It means that there are no
repairs or maintenance issues that need to be addressed immediately.
Buyers can be discouraged by seemingly minor issues, such as a l
oose closet shelf or a lightly dripping shower head. So it’s important to
get those little repairs done before showing your home.
Buyers will also likely want to know the age of your furnace, water
heater and other appliances, in order to anticipate when they will
need to be repaired or replaced. If you have transferrable warranties
for any of these items, be sure to let buyers know.
A fresh coat of paint is one of the best investments you can make in
preparing your home for sale. More than any other repair or
renovation, a coat of paint can make just about any room look
almost new and move-in ready.
Buyers are sometimes worried about having to purchase new
window coverings. If your window coverings will stay with the home,
make that clear to buyers too.
Generally, the more you can do to make your home seem ready to
move in, the better.
