- Curb Appeal
First impressions matter. Make sure flowerbeds, lawn, and front entrance are clean and manicured. Consider welcoming features such as potted plants, a new doormat, or a seating area near the front entrance. Most of all, make sure the overall impression is neat, clean, and uncluttered.
Less is More! Start packing non essential items. Survey rooms for unneeded furniture and remove personal items. You want potential buyers to envision making your house their home.
Position furniture to maximize views and features. Tour each room of your home, and look for ways to enhance flow, function, useable space, and décor.
- Deep Clean
Have your home professionally cleaned. Buyers notice things we often overlook including light fixtures, ceiling fans, baseboards, cabinets, and floors. Pay attention to kitchens and bathrooms. Ask a friend if your home has any noticeable smells, and make sure pet items are put away.
- Fix It
Now is the time to make small repairs that you have been putting off. Buyers will ask for repairs in the contract, so you might as well make minor fixes to make your house look well cared for.
