Getting your home ready to put on the market can seem a little overwhelming. If you are selling your home then you are also probably getting ready to purchase another, so your mind is filled with endless thoughts of tasks that need to be completed in order to finish up each transaction as smoothly as possible. Lifeline Home Inspections knows exactly what it takes to make a home look great and be great in order to sell at a price you will be happy with. Consider the following steps before putting your home on the market.
Declutter & Consider Real Estate Home Staging
Real estate home staging is just that; staging your home to make it more appealing to the highest number of potential buyers. This will help to sell your property quicker and for more money. Go through all of your furniture and your closets with a discerning eye and eliminate unnecessary clutter. If you have a large amount of shoes in your closet, or dresses hanging up, shrink those numbers down so your closet looks bigger. Pack up any items you would like to keep and move them off site to a storage unit or other property. You want to make your home look like it has plenty of space in all of the closets. Any room that feels a little tight due to multiple pieces of furniture can be made to feel more open by removing all but two or three pieces. Again, any spare furniture can be moved off site until you are ready to use it again at your new home.
Be Aware of the Sights, Sounds & Smells in Your Home
If your home has any dark corners, remove any clutter and paint those areas with a lighter paint to brighten up these dim spaces. A home that has a great deal of light, brightness and openness always shows much better than one that is dark and cluttered. Make sure your home is always clean and smells fresh. Many homeowners bake bread or cookies before a showing to provide the potential buyer with a satisfying smell as they walk through the door. This leaves a great first impression! If you have pets, make sure that your home does not smell like you do! In fact, if you have pets, it is a great idea to have your carpets cleaned and open the windows to clear out any foul smells.
