 5 Tips To Selling Your Home

​5 tips to selling your home

Selling your home can be a stressful process. We decided to create a list of best tips for sprucing up your home before you put it on the market.

Packing up your personal items.

​Buyers want to envision themselves and their belongings in the space, so clearing out family photos and personal items is important. When staging the home, you should use large pieces of art to replace walls filled with family photos where needed but don’t be afraid to leave a wall empty either! It’s easier for the buyer to imagine adding their own wall décor to a blank space.

Clean it up, get it out.

For many home buyers, storage space is a must. Maximize the appearance of your home’s storage space by emptying out closets and cupboards as well as the garage, basement, or attic.  Pack away out-of-season clothing and donate what you don’t need. You may even find tons of stuff you forgot you even had. And once you sell, you have a head start on the packing process!

Fresh paint!

​A new coat of paint can do amazing things to the look of your home. Give it a fresh look by using warm neutral tones. This lets buyers see the home as move-in ready! Don’t forget to patch and paint the places where you took down all those family photos!

Give it a serious deep clean.

​You’d be amazed at the difference a deep cleaning can make! Use a power washer to clean the exterior siding and walkways. Make sure to avoid windows and doors that can be damaged by the powerful spray. Clear out dust and cobwebs, bleach grout, wax floors and polish hardware. If you have pets, have the carpets professionally cleaned. Even when your home is in perfect condition, pet smells can be a deal breaker. Don’t take the chance of losing a potential buyer when cleaning the carpets fix it right up!

Freshen up windows and doors.
