Quick Tips For Preparing Your Home For Sale

Lighting

Lighting can make or break a home showing. If you have great natural light, put the heavy curtains away and let the natural light pour in. Also make sure lightbulbs are replaced and ample lighting options are available in each room.

Color

Did you always dream of painting your living room hot pink or neon orange? We are sure that design astatic worked great with your décor, but many homebuyers like neutral colors. If your home has a unique color palette, a quick paint job may help potential buyers see past the color to the true beauty of your home. Soft neutral colors also provide a blank canvas so potential buyers can imagine what they would do with the space.

Décor

Every homeowner is unique to what they consider an adequate amount of decorations in a room. Our rule of thumb is less is usually more. If you have a lot of art on the walls, collections of vases, candles, and figurines around your home, consider packing some of it away and making your space more minimalistic. Having furniture and some décor is valuable when showing a home. Each room should show purpose, but beyond that, let go of over decorating.

Declutter

This is very important when desiring to sell your home. Oftentimes cluttered kitchen counters or a garage full of storage boxes takes away from the space the house truly presents. Be sure to check each room of your home and make sure that all areas are free of clutter. This advice should extend to the outside of our home as well. The free open spaces will be inviting to potential homebuyers.

Landscaping

Remember that the first thing potential homebuyers see besides pictures of your property online is the curb appeal of your home. As they drive up to see their potential new home for the first time, your goals should be to impress not distress the potential homebuyer. If they see a lot of maintenance needed on the landscaping, it may cause alarm. Showing that the outside of your home was cared for, reflects positively on the inside of your home.
