3. Less is More
Less is more. One of the most common characteristics buyers are looking for is space. If the house is crowded with stuff, buyers might think that the house won’t have ample space for their possessions. Having a room with boxes, toys or excessive furniture can make a room seem smaller than it really is. Remove as many items as possible and leave only the essentials to show the functionality of the room.
Depersonalize your home for potential buyers will help to sell your home. This will allow the buyer to connect with your home. Buyers will picture their life in your home. Have a goal to create a blank canvas on which buyers can envision living there.
5. Paint The Walls A Neutral Color
The recommendation is to Paint the walls a neutral color. Sherwin Williams suggests finding the perfect shade of white, gray, or greige. Freshly painted interior walls with a neutral color will help buyers envision living in the space. While you are painting take some time to fix any holes or dings in the walls. When a home is fixed up as well as move-in ready, you will probably see more interest, and may even see multiple offers.
6. Clean Everything
Clean everything, make a deep cleaning list. Clean the big things and clean the little things. As people look at your house they will explore everything. They will go through the closets, the basement, and under the furniture.
You never know when a buyer is going to schedule a visit. Keep everything tidy for that buyer. Take special care of the bathroom, keep the shower, sink, and floor shining.
7. Living House Plants
Living house plants will make a room come to life. A house provides hundreds of places to put a plant; end table, nightstand, kitchen counter, etc. Plants create a warm and welcoming environment. Try placing a bouquet of flowers on a dining room table. Impress buyers by bringing extra color to your decor.
8. Secure or Hide Your Valuables
We encourage our clients that are selling their home to hide any valuables during a showing. If you have a safe, they should lock up expensive items such as jewelry. Portable safes should be as hidden as possible or kept with the seller for maximum security. keep your treasures out of sight, either locked up or stored off-site.
