How to Get Your Home Sold for Top Dollar

Michelle Pais


Here are six easy tips to help you get top dollar for your home.

Here are six easy things you can do to maximize your home’s value:

  • Paint. Make your home look fresh by painting the walls, trim, and interior doors in a neutral color. You should stick to one color palette throughout; warm white is my personal favorite.
  • Update your flooring. Wood floors continue to be buyers’ preferred choice. If you have hardwood floors, refinish them with a natural-looking stain. If your home has tile, consider regrouting it for an updated look. Check under your carpets for hardwood floors.

“A Little Can Go a Long Way.”

  • Regrout bath and kitchen tiles. This instantly gives these rooms a fresh look, and it won’t break the bank.
  • Declutter. When it comes to selling your home, less is more. Make sure counters are free of clutter, put away family photos, and opt for white linens and neutral-colored rugs. 
  • Stage your home. Statistics show that staged homes sell for 10% more on average. Hiring a stager isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity.
  • Freshen up your curb appeal. Your home’s exterior is just as important as the interior. Simple things like power washing and landscaping can go a long way.
