Buyers want to envision their belongings in your home. Store away any knickknacks, photos, or personal items so that the buyer has a clear vision of how their belongings will look.

Organize your Closet

Storage space is a huge selling point, if your closets are stuffed with no extra room, buyers will think you don’t have enough space.

Bring Nature Inside

Potted plants or a few pretty buds in a vase can help bring energy into a space.

The Little Things

Tackle all those little things you have been meaning to do such as tightening up those loose doorknobs. Buyers will notice them and they’ll detract from the value of your home.

Curb Appeal

Improving your landscaping is crucial for a good first impression. A sloppy exterior will make buyers think that you’ve slacked off on interior maintenance as well.

Make it Shine!

From ceiling fans to floors and everything in between, clean your home until it sparkles (or hire a professional). Let The Light In! – Open up all the windows to let in natural light; a bright cheery room looks bigger and more inviting.

Eliminate Odors

Hide the litter box and spray air neutralizer throughout your home. No one wants to spend time looking around, let alone move into a home that smells like the previous owner’s pets.

Make It Inviting

Replace faded house numbers so buyers can see them from the curb. Also, adding a fresh coat of paint to the front door will make it stand out. For the interior; repaint the walls neutral colors to allow buyers to focus on the spaces themselves, not the color of the walls.

Create Vignettes

Help your buyers see themselves in your home by adding deliberate vignettes that show how your home can be lived in. The key is allowing the buyers to see themselves living in the home.
