Considering selling your home? Well, I have some tips to help maximize profit and minimize the time your home is on the market.
STEP 1: First clean. Give your house a “spring cleaning” do curtains, windows, rugs and furniture. You want the house to look it’s best for potential homebuyers.
STEP 2: Pare down the knick-knacks and furniture. You want buyers to see your home, not your stuff. Plus, an emptier room looks bigger.
STEP 3: Use rooms for their intended purpose. If you turned a dining room into a playroom, turn it back to a dining room while your house is for sale.
STEP 4: If something is worn and outdated like carpeting or wall color changes it. A tip, when you’re deciding on colors choose neutral creams and beiges they make everything look clean and simple! These small improvements can pay off big in the end.
STEP 5: Just before a showing fill your house with homey scents. Make some cookies, popcorn or simmer potpourri.
STEP 6: Finally, staging. Turn on the lights, open curtains and have some fresh flowers around to make your home look its best and brightest.
STEP 7: Don’t forget curb appeal. The outside of your home needs to be neat and inviting so people will want to look inside.
