6 ways to prepare your home for selling

When you are selling your home it can easily feel overwhelming. The list might feel so long you might not even know where to start on your real estate journey! Our real estate agents are committed to helping others achieve real estate success. This is why we are providing our expertise and sharing 6 ways to prepare your home for selling success.

Deep Clean

A clean environment is a healthy environment. Cleanliness promotes mental clarity, which is absolutely crucial for first impressions and welcoming potential buyers into your home. The best way to ensure your home is in tip-top shape is by deep cleaning every room to make it feel brand new. 

  • Floors
  • Appliances
  • Countertops
  • Showers
  • Toilets
  • Windows
  • Door handles 
  • Walls 

De-Clutter

It is common for sellers to buy a storage unit to de-clutter their homes. Over the years, it is very likely you have gathered a lot of junk and unnecessary clutter. The less cluttered your house is the cleaner it will feel. Prepare your home for selling by giving it a complete minimalistic makeover.

Minimize Decor

Less is more when it comes to home decor. Overdecorating can lead to a clutter-like experience. It is always best to keep your counters and walls minimal and neutral. The simpler your home’s decor is the better. 

Curb Appeal

Sometimes landscaping can be overlooked, but it’s possibly one of the most important parts of a home-buyer experience. The first look at your home’s exterior is always an important concept. When potential buyers look at the exterior of a house you want them to feel excited about walking in and seeing the rest of it. There are many ways to create a beautiful curb appeal without having to heavily invest. Here are some things to check on if you want to enhance your exterior and prepare your home for selling.

  • Trim down trees
  • Add flower pots 
  • Door touch-up
  • Healthy lawn 
  • Clean windows

 Depersonalize 

When buyers are looking for their new home, they want to picture themselves living in it. This is why depersonalizing your home for open houses and showings is always recommended by our realtors! This goes hand in hand with keeping decor minimal because we want to leave it up to the buyer’s imagination on what their future place will look like. Of course, home staging is still essential, but in neutral colors and designs. Here are a few things you should consider clearing out:

  • Family photos
  • Your fridge 
  • Sentimental Decor
  • Colorful touches
