How to get the most money out of your home when you sell it

The typical American Dream is to move to the suburbs, buy a house and start a family. This is nice for a portion of your life, but what happens when used to be little kids move out to go to college? What happens when your job moves you into the city or into the country? The answer to any scenario of you leaving suburbia is: you have to sell your house fast.
Selling your home can be a big nightmare because you have to fix everything up in the home, make it look spotless and you have to have people traipsing through your home day in and day out. Sometimes, realtors are a bit nit picky on what they think should be fixed. As a real estate investor, I am going to be sharing with you a list of what I think are the most important things to think about repairing and enhancing when you sell your home.
For starters, let's begin with the outside of the home. If the siding is dirty, pressure wash it. You might not have to replace anything, but you need to give it a nice shine to make it more appealing. Then maybe add some mulch and cheap flowers from Walmart or Lowe's. The outside of the home is one of the biggest selling points, but you don't have to always worry about that with Favor Home Solutions.
Moving inside the home, make sure your floors are prestige. That means: wash the carpet or get new ones entirely, sand and stain older hardwood floors, steam kitchen tile, scrub grout of kitchen tile and whatever is needed to make it look spotless.
The walls: if your walls have black marks and everything from normal life with children, invest in a painter and a fresh coat of a neutral paint color that goes with everything. Walls are extremely important when new homebuyers are coming in to take a look at a home. Walls can literally destroy a sale you thought you had.
Kitchen: you have to have nice cabinets!!! I cannot stress this enough, but cabinets are extremely important to people. They can't be old 1970's cabinets, they have to be stained if they are older or just brand new entirely. Make sure the counter is a new, clean look; not that old cork board stuff from the 1960's and 70's. If you're leaving appliances, make sure they are nice, stainless steel appliances.
Bathrooms: Make sure the vanity is not some weird design or pattern, neutral tile colors will do just fine. Update any and all tile that's out of date, and make sure your toilet isn't a shade other than white. Replace the toilet if it's one of those retro red or green ones.
Light Fixtures: Make sure you have new updated light fixtures, please please please make sure this is done.
If you follow all of these guidelines, you'll be able to find someone who will buy your home for cash in Nashville!
