Home Selling Tips

Contact your AAFCU Mortgage Professional to help you understand your options for selling your home at mortgageinfo@aafcu.com.  Once you decide how you are going to offer your house for sale these simple steps will help you sell your home in the least amount of time and for top dollar.

Prepping and Staging 

Make Your Home "Anonymous" - Pack up personal photographs, sports trophies, collectible items, and family heirlooms.  You want buyers to imagine your house as their new home.  They may have difficulty doing this if all of your personal items are there!

Remove Clutter - Most homes show better with less furniture and clutter-free kitchen counter tops, shelves, and tables.  You want as much clear and open space as possible.  Potential buyers should see your home, not your stuff!

Make Small Repairs to Your Home - Don't spend a fortune, but small repairs can go a long way in making your home more appealing to potential buyers.  Patch holes in walls and consider painting the interior of your home in a neutral color.  Ensure light fixtures and plumbing fixtures are in working order.

Clean Until it Gleams - Make a great first impression on potential buyers with a fresh and clean home.  Wash windows inside and out, clean the carpets, polish mirrors, dust furniture, and clear any cobwebs.  Make it smell good, too!

Don't Forget the Outside of Your Home - Wow potential buyers from the start with great curb appeal.  Mow the lawn and trim the bushes.  Paint fading trim and keep the front yard and sidewalks clear.  Plant some flowers in pots near the door for an extra touch.
