Here are the tips I recommend when preparing to list your home for sale.
It’s a great time for sellers to jump into the market. If you’ve been thinking about listing your home, there are four tips that can help you get the most out of your sale. These include:
1. Hire professionals to clean your house. These pros will clean your home from top to bottom and ensure everything looks tidy, refreshed, and ready for a new owner.
2. Stage both the inside and outside of your property. A lot of TV shows only let you see the staged interiors, but the exterior is just as important. It makes the first impression on the buyer; if your lawn looks barren and your siding is dirty, your home is not going to thrill many buyers. Meanwhile, make sure to declutter the inside of your property. Remove the things you don’t use every day, and rearrange furniture to open up space and make it look larger.
3. Introduce bright, natural lighting. You want your home to be brightly lit, preferably with natural light. Open your blinds and curtains and let the sunlight pour in. You also want to look at all your light fixtures and make sure you’re using the brightest possible bulb. This way, your lights will illuminate the home and make everything feel larger, more open, and joyful.
4. Make your property cozy like a home. With one simple trick, you can make your house seem more like a warm, inviting home. Put some vanilla on a paper towel, microwave it for about 15 seconds, and then shake it around your kitchen. It’ll smell like you just finished baking some cookies.
If you follow these tips, you’re bound to draw in some excited and eager buyers. If you have any questions, are looking to sell your home, or would like more information about getting top dollar on your property, feel free to reach out to me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
