You’ve enjoyed your time in your home, but now you’re ready to move on.
When the time comes to sell, staging your home the right way is critical. Thankfully, the preparations don’t have to be complicated or expensive. With a bit of time and effort — and a few new things — we can make sure your space is appealing to house hunters.
- Get rid of clutter.
Clutter is a surefire way to turn off potential buyers. Pick up clothing and personal items that would detract from the overall beauty of your home. But don’t just stuff them in a closet — homebuyers may want to open them to see available storage space.
- Pay attention to the exterior.
Before anyone walks in, your home’s exterior is what makes the first impression. Add a new doormat and hang a wreath on your door to create a welcoming feel. It will help to increase your home’s appeal and value.
- Spruce up the kitchen.
Buyers pay a great deal of attention to your kitchen — and so should you. Install extra lights to give the room a bright, spacious feel. You should also put away items typically left on the counters, and be sure to scrub everything. Try to avoid cooking for at least a day before your showing so the room will smell as clean as it looks.
- Do a deep clean.
Every room in the house should be spotless. Mildew and mold in the bathroom will turn off potential buyers faster than you can say “squeaky clean.” Pet owners will want to make sure there are no pet hairs or smells on carpets, couches or bed covers.
