Clear the Clutter
Potential buyers want to envision their things in your space. They don’t want to see your treasured knickknacks, your family photos or your most eccentric art. Takedown all of your personal items, including anything that buyers could construe as polarizing or controversial so that you make it easy for buyers to move in.
Furniture counts, too. The less furniture you have in your rooms, the bigger they’ll look.
Make Your Existing Space Look Smarter
Organize your closets, cupboards, and cabinets. Buyers will certainly open them, so use that as a subtle (but very effective) selling point. Put your spice jars in alphabetical order, make sure you’ve lined up the coffee mugs with all the handles facing the same way, and organize your closets by colors. Make sure to paired and lineup all the shoes neatly, as well.
If you show potential buyers that you take care of your belongings, they’ll have a warm-fuzzy feeling about the way you’ve cared for the house, as well.
Hiring a Professional Home Stager
It’s not necessary for everyone to hire a professional stager, but they are excellent at ensuring homes show at their best. If you can’t afford to hire a professional, ask your Realtor for tips and tricks that will make the home more appealing to potential buyers.
