Try to view your home through the buyers’ eyes. Any time or money invested in the following will potentially bring back more money in return,along with a faster sale.
Clear all unnecessary objects from furniture throughout the house. Keep decorative objects on the furniture to a minimum.
Clear all unnecessary objects from the kitchen countertops. Clear refrigerator fronts of messages, pictures, etc. This may help a potential buyer visualize their own belongings into your kitchen. In the bathroom, remove any unnecessary items from countertops, tubs, shower stalls and coordinate towels to one or two colors only.
Rearrange or remove some of the furniture if necessary. When it comes to selling, we need to edit out as much as possible to make rooms appear larger.
Paint any room needing paint and clean carpets, drapes and windows that require attention.
During “showings” turn on all lights and lamps.
Go around the perimeter of the house and move all garbage cans, extra building materials, etc., into the garage or storage.
Prune bushes and trees and remove any dead plants or shrubs. Keep plants from blocking windows. Keep lawn freshly cut and fertilized.
Clear patios or decks of items such as small planters or flower pots, toys. etc.
First impressions are lasting impressions. You will want to make sure the buyers looking at your home are left with the best possible impression.
