According to Murphy’s Law, everything takes longer than you think it will. When it comes to preparing your home for sale, that saying is very true. You’ve probably comfortable in your home and don’t realize that your décor won’t appeal to prospective buyers.
Look around your home with fresh eyes. Check for clutter, kitchen appliances on counter tops, collections, excess furniture, worn throw rugs or throw pillows, and family photos. All your furniture should be uncluttered and clean. Prospective buyers should be able to see the floors and countertops. It’s important for anyone who enters your home with the possibility of purchasing to be able to imagine their furnishings and décor in your home.
We know you love all your possessions, so you don’t have to throw them out. If you have too many, you may have to rent a storage unit for a brief amount of time. They’ll be there when you move to your next place.
After all that work, clean like you’ve never cleaned before or hire someone to clean. You want your home to sparkle and smell amazing. And on that note, be sure to banish pet smells.
When you finish indoors, turn your attention to the great outdoors. Mow, use the weedeater and put some pretty flowers on the front porch to welcome visitors. Read our tips for preparing your lawn HERE
When all that hard work is done and you’ve rested a bit, contact your Realtor or Contact Us and tell them you’re ready. Get that For Sale sign in the front yard and wait for the buyers to come.
