It’s Day 1 of the 31 Day Get Your Home Ready to Sell Challenge.
Today’s challenge is relatively easy. Its just getting ready for the upcoming days.
You’re going to grab boxes from a storage or local hardware store for all that packing you’re going to do. The liquor store has particularly strong boxes for books or delicate and fragile items.
Grab a bunch of post-it notes, markers, packing tape and plastic bags for clothes that are going to the local thrift store.
Your next job is to grab your camera or cell phone. You’re going to take a picture of EVERY single room in the house including the basement. Go in each room and take a picture from the door looking into the room. Take a few pictures of different angles so you can capture every part of the room.
Next, go outside, walk across the street, and take a picture or two of of the front of your house. Make sure you get the whole house in. You may need to take a coupe of pictures to do this but you want these picjtures as a references. The front of your house is your “curb appeal” and potential buyers do a “drive-by” to see if they like the neighborhood and the house. If they don’t like what they see, they just keep on driving by.
Go to your back yard and do the same. Take as many pictures as you need to make sure you document every part of the back yard.
Success! Day 1 is done just like that. Give yourself a pat on the back.
