Aside from necessary repairs, consider doing budget-friendly fixes to add curb appeal.

Hiring an agent

Consider hiring a licensed and experienced real estate agent. If you don’t have the time to schedule viewing appointments and take calls from prospective buyers, having an agent to accommodate these needs on your behalf may prove to be convenient. Besides being convenient, hiring a real estate agent may also introduce your property sale to a wider market. He also has the expertise to handle negotiations and contracts, which may come in handy when dealing with demanding home buyers. 

Setting a price

Before putting your house on the market, you should decide on a selling price.This goes hand in hand with knowing what your property is worth. Research on the running prices of comparable properties in your area.

Remember that setting a price too high may discourage potential buyers from even considering viewing your property, while setting it too low means you're short-selling your property. It’s important to set a fair price that is within the market’s range. Expect negotiations on your asking price, and decide how much you’re really willing to settle on. 

Curb appeal

For old homes in particular, you should consider doing minor repairs and renovations to boost your property’s value. This is where routine maintenance comes in.

A well-maintained home will have fewer problems that need to be repaired. Aside from necessary repairs, consider doing budget-friendly fixes to add curb appeal. The most cost-effective way to achieve this is by repainting your exterior façade and interior walls. A fresh coat of paint will instantly make your house look new and appealing.
