DRESSING YOUR HOME FOR SUCCESS
Friday Apr 23rd, 2021
Even in a hot seller’s market, it’s important to properly prepare your home as it will help it sell even quicker and at a higher price! The following tips can be implemented with minimal cost and effort:
These days, outdoor living space is a coveted feature so create a great first impression by cutting the grass, tidying the yard, washing the exterior and cleaning the windows.
The foyer is another area where first impressions are key so remove excess belongings such as coats and shoes and ensure it’s well lit so that it appears as spacious as possible.
Clear the Clutter
Too much “stuff” will make your home appear much smaller than it actually is and in this market, buyers want space, so clean out your closets, garage, basement and attic.
It’s Nothing Personal
It’s important that buyers are able to imagine themselves living in your home, so depersonalize each room by taking down family photos and removing anything else that’ll make them feel as though they're intruding.
Fix it First
Buyers love to exaggerate repair costs so take care of any repairs ahead of time. Even small things like leaky faucets and ripped carpeting will cause buyers to question what other repairs lurk beneath the surface.
Buyers will size up each and every room but they'll also snoop through your cupboards and closets so make sure they’re organized, de-cluttered and spotlessly clean!
Extra space for a home office, zoom room or home gym is growing in popularity due to the pandemic. If you have an extra room or even just a space that could be staged as a flex room, you’ll attract more buyers.
It’s often the little things that make a huge difference when it comes to creating a winning first impression. If you want to get top dollar for your property, it’s important to set some time aside to freshen up your home before it hits the market. It’s an investment that will definitely pay off!
