Are getting ready to sell your home in Albuquerque? If so, you already know there’s a lot of things to consider.  But there are some basic things to keep in mind to make sure you get more money from the sale of your home as well as sell it faster. Here’s a few things you can do right now.

Get Storage

Don’t think you can declutter your home by shoving things in the closets. Buyers will look in your closets and see a mess. Instead, rent a storage unit and store things that you won’t need when you home is on the market.


One of the main goals of selling a home is to make the buyer see it as their home. That’s harder to do if your photos are all over the walls. The same goes with artwork.  You may appreciate the art, but the buyer might not.  Try to make the interior as neutral as possible in the way of personal affects.

Lighten Up

Light can make all the difference when it comes to making the home more appealing.  Get as high of a wattage bulb as your fixtures will safely allow.  And open the blinds and curtains.

Curb Appeal is Real

The first few seconds are critical when a buyer comes to your home.  They will almost always judge a book by its cover. So tidy up the yard.  Trim the hedges, put down new mulch, edge the lawn.  Hire a landscaper if you need to.  Freshen up the exterior paint. Powerwash the walkways and driveway.  Every little thing does matter.

If you follow these few steps, you'll almost certainly sell your home faster and make more money in the end.
