Looking to sell your home in the Greater New Orleans area?
Many homeowners and realtors pay a pretty penny to hire a staging expert to help make their home more attractive to prospective buyers. But by following a few easy steps, you can make your home the most desirable property on the market without having to spend thousands of dollars on an expert.
Take small steps to declutter
The New Orleans housing market can be a very competitive space. You have to do something special in order to make your property stand out.
Most studies show that prospective homebuyers prefer to visit a house that looks lived in, but they shy away from buying a home that feels cluttered.
So how can you manage this balancing act? Chances are your home has more stuff in it then you really need. As you’re getting set to move, decluttering a bit won’t just make your home more attractive to sell, but it’ll make your move far less stressful.
We recommend that you take small steps as you declutter your home, to avoid getting overwhelmed. For example, choose one closet to focus on first. How can you make that closet more attractive? What items in that closet do you not really need?
You can probably donate a good amount of unwanted items from your closets and drawers; however, you’ll want to rent a residential-friendly dumpster for those items you feel ready to toss out completely.
Attack those usual clutter suspects
Basements. Garages. Backyard sheds. These spaces in your home are famous for housing piles and piles of unused and unwanted items.
It’d be a shame to lose out on a sale because your prospective buyer was turned off by the clutter in your garage, right?
If you have a ton of unused items in any of these usual suspects, we’d recommend you rent one of our larger residential-friendly dumpsters, and then spend the day clearing out these areas so that folks interested in your home get to see the beauty of these spaces, without the distraction of all that stuff.
Tackle your yard – it’s finally time!
If you’re like most of our fellow Greater New Orleans or Mandeville homeowners, then you probably have a laundry list of things you want to do with your yard.
Now that you’re selling your home, you probably consider that list irrelevant.
Prepping your yard for a sale could dramatically increase the value of your home while also making it really attractive to buyers. Whether it’s fixing up rundown fences or undergoing a landscaping project, the time and effort you put into your yard will more than likely give you a healthy return with your sale.
Just be sure that you have one of our residential-friendly dumpsters in place on site before taking on these projects. It’ll save you a ton of stress in the long run.
Maybe it’s time for that remodeling project?
We’ve all put off remodeling projects for one reason or another. When it’s time to sell your home, you’re probably thinking there’s no reason to remodel your kitchen, bathroom, or other space.
But maybe there is?
By remodeling your home before you sell it, you might not ever get to enjoy this new look or space, but you will enjoy the added value this type of project will certainly have for your home.
A new kitchen alone could be the single reason why a buyer decided to make an offer.
The key to a successful home sale? Renting a residential dumpster in New Orleans, Covington, Mandeville, and Slidell
There’s a lot of work to be done before you sell your home. Before you know it, you could be knee deep in yard waste, old furniture, and unwanted clothes and, well, junk.
That’s why most homeowners throughout Mandeville, Slidell, and Greater New Orleans rent a residential dumpster from Bin There Dump That.
Our residential-friendly dumpsters can handle any cleanup or remodeling project you’ll take on, and are designed to fit within the confines of residential properties.
And unlike commercial-grade dumpster bins, the bins at Bin There Dump That are delivered by smaller-sized trucks, and placed on wooden planks, so that your property is not damaged as you get ready to sell your home.
