Get Your Home Ready To Sell

Get Your Home Ready To Sell

After looking through homes with buyers and suggesting to sellers what to do to sell a home, I have a few of my personal ideas to ready your home. 

Focal Points! ... This is a big one for me. If you want to wow that buyer, have a focal point. The entire house should look clean and nice but a focal point or two brings the wows! It can be the fireplace, the front door, the dining room wall, staircase, so many options. Select your focal point and make it a stage-stealer.

Appeal to the masses... No one wants cookie-cutter, but  your eclectic, experimental style should not leaving a lasting impression either. For the most part, let the house flow with similar color and usually on the neutral side. If it appeals to most, the potential buyer can keep an open mind and add their personal touch later.

CLEAN!! ... I cannot say enough about cleaning! Clean like you've never cleaned before. Buyers do not want to see build up of any kind of dirt anywhere. If they see dirt, it automatically gives an impression of how the house is cared for overall. 

The yard...Make sure your yard is manicured and clear of clutter. This is the first impression when they pull up and an important component of the overall property.

Fix the little things... Those little tasks you've put off for years living there, fix them now! It's a bad impression to see broken handles, worn out wood corners, tilting toilet seats, leaking faucets, etc.

Go ahead, let us see how you use space!... Show off little areas you use for certain tasks and relaxation spots. A nook with a chair, a craft corner, chill-spot in the front drive. Let them see how they can use the space.
