When I come to do the paperwork to list your home for sale in Saskatoon (can be any time before you are actually ready to put your home on the market) I will have probably already been in it at least once before. During my initial visit I make notes of what improvements can be made and what absolutely needs to be done before putting your house on the active real estate market in Saskatoon. We will then go through your home again to decide what you can do to improve it, if needed. Sometimes it is as simple as replacing light bulbs, patching some paint, cleaning etc. Other times I may suggest some landscaping that should be addressed (ie: if the drainage looks like it is going right into the foundation this could cause flooding therefore should be fixed)
Often giving the home a good and thorough cleaning along with some paint patches and de-cluttering can be all that is needed. Other times there is more that is needed and I can help you determine what those things are. Some other common things to do to get ready for the sale are:
If possible. Pets can turn people off and even de-value your home.
Especially if you have pets.
The slowness of EE bulbs can make your home appear dimmer/darker on a quick walkthrough. Instead, replace them with regular bright bulbs!
Dirty furnace filters can say a lot about how well you do or don't maintain your home.
Ensure your yard is as neat as possible to attract buyers.
Anything that may have been requested by you as the buyer (e.g. furnace inspection, appraisal fees, water quality/quantity tests for acreages, etc.)
Often, buyers can get distracted by photos of people, so take down as many as possible, along with other items you don't want to be seen by strangers (diplomas, awards, report cards, etc.).
Leave your home each morning how you would before a showing, as you never know when you may get a last-minute call to view it (and you may not always have time to make your bed!).
