Did you plan your exit strategy? Selling your home in New Milford CT.

New Milford CT real estate selling your homeWe all need an exit strategy at one time or another. And if you are selling your home in New Milford, CT you will also need an exit strategy. Leaving things to the last minute can cost your money at the closing table or worse.

Why wait until the last minute to get rid of all that “stuff” you don’t want to take with you? For instance, the 15 cans of paint in the basement, the scraps of wood scattered all about the garage and the yard, the old shelves, the bits of carpet you saved, your collection of garbage cans, yard art, old cleaning supplies, the list goes on. As much as you don’t want to take these items with you, there will be NO convincing the buyers that they want these items either! Trust me on that one.

Clean up the debris in the yard, look at what is hanging around the basement, the garage, the attic. Get rid of what you won’t be taking with you. If you don’t, it will cause a problem at the closing table, I can promise you that. And depending on how much you left, it could cost you quite a pretty penny. Cleaning it up before you put the house on the market is really the best idea. Your house will look less cluttered and potential buyers won’t be scared off by wondering how on earth you will get all your “stuff” moved out in time for the closing!

When you decide to sell your home in New Milford, CT, plan your exit strategy!
