Getting ready to sell or thinking about it? When buyers come into your home overall appearance is key. Here are just a few simple ways to stage your home and get it ready to put on the market.
1, Packing away personal items is one of the easiest ways to de-personalize and start fresh for prospective buyers. Photos, dishes, extra belongings need to be packed away. Everything needs to be neutral.
2. Ridding the home of clutter is another way to clear out the property so that buyers come in and can imagine the home as their own. Box up your home and stack things in the garage out of the way.
3. Rearrange furniture and make sure each room has a purpose. If you have a 'junk' room used to store extra stuff, clear it out and arrange the room to suit the needs of potential buyers. No one wants to come in and see your junk room. Buyers don't want to try and figure out what a rooms purpose is.
4. If your home hasn't been painted in a long while, try painting the walls a fresh neutral color. Paint freshens up the area and can make a home look inviting.
5. Make sure your home is always clean. I have to say as a Realtor who has shown buyers a lot of real estate, dirty houses sit on the market! I don't care if people like the floor plan or love the neighborhood! They want to come into an inviting, clean and fresh home and imagine it as their own!
