Tips to getting your house ready for sale!
Deep Clean and Decluttering
There’s maintenance cleaning, and then cleaning your home so that it’s marketable. This means paying attention to the things you may normally bypass like cleaning any window treatments and getting the floors professionally done. Try to make the bathrooms and kitchen look like they haven’t been used (re-caulking could do wonders!), and don’t forget about your home’s exterior.
Remember to clear all countertops of personal items and any everyday products. You ultimately want the people viewing the home to envision themselves in the space.
Part of selling your home is detaching from it, and this means removing family photos and anything that could cause a distraction when a potential buyer is viewing the property.
Update and Organize Depending on your budget, making minor updates to the kitchen and throughout the home can lend to your chances of selling quicker. Paint the cabinets and update their hardware if possible. Cover all holes and cracks in any walls. You want to anyone viewing the home to be looking at a clean slate.
Be sure to organize closets and even consider renting a storage unit for extraneous items (personalized pieces or family heirlooms). Buy light bulbs! All the lights in your home should be to on to optimize the clean, clutter-less space you’ve curated.
Speaking of curation…now that you’ve depersonalized and freshened everything up, add some inviting yet neutralized flair to the home. Buy fresh flowers, add some new (understated and chic) throw pillows, hang fresh towels in the bathrooms, and rearrange the furniture in a fashion that makes the space feel open and inviting.
Even though you’ve removed your personal touch, you can still impress potential buyers with tasteful and universal styling skills.
