TOP 10 HELPFUL TIPS
To Prepare your home before putting it on the market
The exterior of home is the first thing buyers will see. Mow the lawn, freshen up paint on the front door, and plant flowers.
Remove out-of-style wallpaper, replace broken light fixtures, update cabinet and drawer pulls, and refresh dated window treatments.
Research the latest design trends and stage your house to match. Professional stagers recommend tailoring the design style to your target demographic.
Do a proper sort and purge, getting rid of outdated clothing, duplicate items, and rarely-used gadgets.
“Everything in its place” is a good motto to remember. Always find appropriate places to place your items.
Empty homes do not show well and can sit on the market for months so renting furniture can be a good investment.
Each room should be embellished with accessories, artwork, mirrors, accent tables, silk trees, and florals, as well as dishes, bedding, and towels.
Odors from pets, smoking, and such are not appealing to potential buyers. Be prepared to possibly even replacing the carpet if needed.
Start pre-packing your home, storing non-essentials or out-of-season gear in the garage or off-site.
Remove family pictures and personal collections and replace them with neutral artwork and simple accessories.
