Smart tips to help you sell later

If you're not quite ready but think you might move in a few years, there are things you can do now to prepare your home for when you are ready to list. 

*Upgrade. In a balanced market where you are competing with many other properties for sale. Buyers pay attention to homes with unique value-adds, such as upgrades to kitchens and bathrooms, so focus on those eye catching projects as you prepare your home for sale.
*Look for ways to save energy. Todays buyers are interested in money saving, energy efficient  features, so install energy efficient windows, replace outdated furnaces and water heaters and insulate the attic or basements if you have one.
*Install and electric vehicle charger in the garage and USB/C charging outlets in your home. These small tech upgrades help modernize the home for todays buyer.
*Keep up with routine maintenance. The better condition your home is in, the more you may be able to sell it for, plus routine maintenance helps prevent expensive repairs.
*Never underestimate the revitalizing power of a coat of paint, professionally done.
