Tips For Preparing Your Home For Sale: Show Ready

Last week we talked about curb appeal and offered some tips on how to make your home more attractive to buyers checking it out from the street riding by.  You must have done a great job on the outside because now you have showing appointments scheduled! Here are some ideas on how to be "show ready".

1. Clean. Scrub the bathrooms, the kitchen...everything. Put together a handy tote with quick cleaning supplies and fresh towels so you can be ready in a flash!

2. Clear off the refrigerator and counters.  It gives the kitchen a clean, streamlined apprearance.

3. Candles or air fresheners? Neither...buyers are typically suspicious of odor masking techniques. You won't need these if you keep up on tip #1 above.

4. Clear the floors. Provide the inhabitants of your household with hampers so the picking up of bedrooms becomes a smidge easier to handle. Don't forget to vacuum and sweep the floors too.

5. Freshen up throw pillows and decor. Less is more when it comes to decorative items; this seller used a single color in the toss pillows and small pieces such as the mantle vase and candy dish throughout the room to give it a designer look. 

 

It's not always easy to achieve all this with pets, children, job schedules, etc. but doing your best a little bit each day will help take some of the stress out of showing appointments. Offering a clean and tidy home goes a long way with buyers!

 

Check back each week as we offer this multi-post series on Preparing Your Home For Sale!

Tips for Preparing Your Home For Sale: Curb Appeal

This is it!  You have made the decision to sell your home, the Real Estate Agent has been hired, and you have started looking at new homes.  How do you get your home sold in less time for the most return?  Follow these tips from our experts to get your home noticed and buyers interested.

1. Spruce up your yard.  Rake out the lawn, pick up leaves, trim headges, and clear away debris. Having a green lawn is ideal not only for potential buyers riding by the home but also for photos that your agent will use to market your home.

2. Paint your front door.  Give it a new coat of paint, keep it classic or choose a bright bold color.

3. Place pots of vibrant flowers near your door or entryway.  Flowers are an instant pop of color and offer a cheerful welcome.

4. Replace your address numbers on the house.  Make the house easier to find with numbers of a contrasting color to the siding or trim, and make them large enough to be seen from the street.

5. Put out the "Welcome" mat.  Replace your old or worn door mat with a fresh new one, nothing says Welcome Home better!
