10 Ways to Make Your House in Bradley Beach NJ More Saleable

  1. Get rid of clutter.  Throw out or file stacks of newspapers and magazines.  Pack away most of your small decorative items.  Store out-of-season clothing to make closets seem roomier.  Clean out the garage.
  2. Wash your windows and screens to let more light into the interior.
  3. Keep everything extra clean.  Wash fingerprints from light switch plates.  Mop and wax floors.  Clean the stove and refrigerator.  A clean house makes a better first impression and convinces buyers that the home has been well cared for.
  4. Get rid of smells!  Even if you think you house does not have smells, spring for a good carpet and drape cleaning to eliminate any possible cooking odors, smoke, and pet smells.  Keep the windows open when possible (if road noise is not an issue).
  5. Put higher wattage bulbs in light sockets to make rooms seem brighter, especially basements and other dark rooms.  Replace any burnt-out bulbs.
  6. Make minor repairs that can create a bad impression.  Small problems, such as sticky doors, torn screens, cracked caulking, or a dripping faucet, may seem trivial, but they’ll give buyers the impression that the house isn’t well maintained.
  7. Tidy your yard.  Cut the grass, rake the leaves, trim the bushes, and edge the walks.  Put a pot or two of bright flowers near the entryway.
  8. Patch holes in your driveway and reapply sealant, if applicable.
  9. Clean your gutters.  Remove any debris such as pine straw that has accumulated on the roof.
  10. Polish your front doorknob and door numbers.  Remember, the door is the first part of the home potential buyers see!
