There are many benefits to upgrading to a larger home. Whether you want to grow your family or you just want more space, here are just a few benefits to consider when moving in to a bigger home.

  • More kitchen space
  • More closet space
  • Upgraded appliances
  • More master bedroom space
  • Location, location, location!

There are different types of programs available with lower down payment requirements for First Time Home Buyers. Move Up Home Buyers are defined as a growing family moving from a smaller home into a larger home, so this might be a perfect situation for you.

First, get a full home and pest inspection done and fix any problems, large or small. Whether it be roof leaks, termites, foundation problems, wall holes and damage, dampness, or plumbing problems, fix anything that may turn away a potential buyer. Next, hit the major things that potential buyers will be looking at. Consider steam cleaning your carpets and draperies or replacing them if they are too worn to salvage. Now that you have gone over all of the structural points of the home and made changes to help your homes market value it is time to get to the nitty-gritty parts of making your home market ready. It’s time to rid your home of all that clutter you didn’t even notice. Clear your kitchen and bathroom countertops, bookshelves and tabletops, and any other surfaces that might contain knick-knacks or even excessive items you use on a daily basis. The point is to give the appearance of being roomy and comfortable to let the buyers truly see the home while not being fixated on your stuff. Lastly, take a step outside. How does your home look before you have even entered it? Make sure your homes curb appeal is up to par. After all, you want your home to be welcoming before potential buyers even take their first step inside. It may seem like quite a bit but making sure that your home is market ready is a necessary step in the process of selling your home for its maximum value.
