First impressions are important especially when it comes to selling a home. In a market like ours, in particular, you need the home in tip-top shape to get the buyers flocking in. When getting ready to sell, there are a few ways to attract potential buyers to the home.
Here are a few tips on how to get the home ready:
- De-clutter: It’s surprising how much stuff we can accumulate throughout the years. A home with a lot of clutter looks smaller and messy. This is a great opportunity to get rid of junk that hasn’t been touched in years. Organizing belongings in the basement, attic or garage in plastic totes will give the home a spacious look which is appealing to buyers.
- Choose neutral: Not everyone likes bright walls. Choosing a neutral paint color will appeal to homebuyers. It makes the home look more attractive and buyers can always change it down the road.
- Make the place sparkle: Messiness does not appeal to buyers. Before putting a house on the market, do a thorough cleaning. Dust, vacuum, and clean countertops and bathrooms. Make sure the house sparkles at all times as this will help a realtor who may have a surprise showing for a potential buyer.
- Up the curb appeal: When a buyer pulls up to a home, the first thing they see is the exterior. Make it count. Mow the lawn, clean up any debris, and plant some flowers to really make the house pop!
