Your home is on the market and you want it to sell fast for the highest possible price. Here are some tips to get your home “show ready” for buyers:
ONE: LET IN THE LIGHT
Open curtains and pull up the shades to let in as much light as possible.
A dirty home does not look well maintained. Clean your home from top to bottom.
Having your home staged to look appealing to buyers can make a difference. Read some staging trends here.
All of your belongings do not sell with the home, so now is the time to de-clutter and remove personal items such as photos or collections.
FIVE: ADD CURB APPEAL
A buyer’s first impression is made when that person pulls up the driveway. Make sure your home is tidy and welcoming.
SIX: NO TRACE OF PETS
If you have pets, you need to make their presence disappear. Food bowls should be stored and toys hidden. Read more about pets here.
When your home has a showing scheduled, you need to leave. A buyer wants to feel comfortable inspecting your home which is difficult to do if you are there. And, if you have a pet, take it with you.
