With subtle changes like replacing kitchen hardware and painting your front door, homebuyers will take notice and you'll benefit from a quick, successful home sale. Follow these steps to upgrading your homes in Fairbanks or Anchorage and this spring, you'll be that much closer to moving into your next Alaskan dream home.
Upgrade Your Front Door
Especially if you're planning to sell your home in Alaska this spring, pay attention to the front door! The front door sets the stage for the rest of your home and to be successful in your home sale, you'll want to impress Alaskan homebuyers from the beginning. You can start by giving the door a fresh coat of paint, replace the hardware, and make sure the glass is clear and in great shape. If you see any dents or scratches that paint cannot cover, it may be time to replace the door entirely.
Upgrade Curb Appeal
In real estate, it's all about curb appeal and it’s important that the exterior of your homes in Fairbanks, Anchorage be in the best shape possible. According to MSN Real Estate, your landscaping does not have to be the “Garden of Eden,” but it should complement your home. In the warmer months, "Make sure the grass is cut with a lawn mower and remove any weeds,” MSN Real Estate says. “If there are patches of dirt or areas without grass, consider planting flower beds or bushes.”
Upgrade with Cleaning
Alaskan homebuyers are looking for homes that are bright and easily-navigated, meaning the home is free of clutter and excess furniture. Start your spring cleaning by throwing out the old and making room for the new. In preparation for a home sale, go through every space in your home from your closet to your garage. Remember, homebuyers will be touring homes in Fairbanks and Anchorage and clutter will stand out. But do not wait until after your home sale to start cleaning the spaces— be proactive and make it easier on yourself when moving to a new home in Alaska.
Upgrade with Painting
Adding a fresh coat of paint to your home is a great way to brighten up spaces and impress homebuyers. It doesn’t take much money to give your walls a fresh coat to help them look new again, but remember to stick to neutral colors. “It’s important that all of the walls look uniform and neutral in color,” advises MSN Real Estate. “Buying a can or two of the same color of paint will allow you to do this and patch up any spaces where there might be splotches or stains.”
