Pack your memories away

Items that remind us of special people, events, milestones and interests are
an important part of what makes a home a home. Pictures on the fireplace
mantle, for example, showcase family and friends that are important to us.
You might also have trophies, certificates, greeting cards, and other
mementoes on display in key places.


Of course, all of those things add warmth and meaning to your home.
However, if you're preparing your home for sale, it's a good idea to pack
those memories away - at least until you've sold your property and moved to
your new home.


Why? Because those pleasant mementoes that mean so much to you may
actually turn off potential buyers.


You see, when buyers view your property, you want them to be able to
clearly picture themselves and their families living there. That's difficult to do
if everywhere they look they see reminders that this is your home!


So, to help sell your home quickly, make it look great, but not personalized.
Think of the showroom displays you see set up in furniture stores. Those
displays are most appealing when they enable you to easily picture yourself,
with that furniture, in your home. You probably wouldn't feel that way if it
looked like the furniture belonged to someone else.


Of course, buyers will know you currently live in your home. But helping
them imagine themselves living there will help you sell your property faster –
and possibly for a better price.

How a Home Inspection Helps You
Whether you're considering buying a particular home, selling your current
property – or both – a home inspection can help.
A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a
close look at every aspect of a home – structure, wiring, plumbing, and
more – and identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.
For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be
replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to
be fixed.
You'll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a
particular property. That's why most offers to purchase a home are
conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to
buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)
You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you
list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your
home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.
Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry
association.
