- DePersonalize Your Home.
The moment you decide to sell your home, it’s no longer your home so pack up and put away any family photos or other family objects you may have through the house, these things can distract the buyer. You want your home to be impersonal so that the buyer can visualize how they would decorate the home with there stuff
As far as furniture goes..neutral furniture and basic decorations are good for showings and can give the buyer a homey feeling when looking at your house, things that are too distracting like a zebra print couch may take away from the real selling points of your home and should be put away
2. Declutter, declutter, declutter!
We all probably have stuff that we never use but has been sitting in our junk drawer since before we can remember so, now is the time to go through your home and get some unnecessary belongings out of your house. Not only does this give your home a cleaner look it also saves time when your packing up after your home sale!
3. Prepare For Photos.
If you follow the previous steps you should be ready to go for photo day, however, it is a good idea to walk through your home and clean everything that will be shown in photos. Wiping everything down and putting any obscure objects away will make your photos sparkle when buyers are looking at them
Also, don’t forget the outside of your home. It is a good idea to park cars on the street on photo day so the photographer can get quality pictures of your homes exterior
4. Fix Minor Repairs
When you have buyers walking through your home having little things stand out like missing light bulbs or a leaky faucet can give off the impression that the home is not well taken care of even if you are a good homeowner so, replace cracked tiles, patch up any holes in the walls, and make your house sparkle before you have buyers looking at your home.
5. Curb Appeal!
We all know how important first impressions are, and your front yard is your homes first impression! This is the case for online buyers as well since they are most likely going to see the outside of your house first when they find your home online. So now is the time to clean up any debris and maybe add some potted plants to your front porch. Making your home more appealing from the outside goes a long way and will make your home stand out against the rest. Don’t forget to make your house number visible as well so it is easy to locate your home!
