Potential home buyers want to be able to envision themselves and their personal belongings in your home. Below are recommendations for preparing your home for sale to help that potential home buyer see themselves living in your home.
The more spacious your home feels, the easier it is for a prospective buyer to imagine living in it. Most homes show better with less furniture. Rent a storage unit to store furniture and other items during your transition to a new home.
Regardless of what time of year it is, it is time for spring cleaning. You want potential buyers to walk in envisioning themselves with their personal belongings in your home. However, potential buyers can be distracted by your personal belongings, photos, and heirlooms. Depersonalize & declutter by storing some of your personal effects and furniture in a storage unit.
While you can list exclusions from the sale, such as curtains and rods, it is best practice to remove anything you aren’t willing to part with. If a buyer doesn’t see it, they won’t want it.
Home inspections are not required before listing your home, but having one can reassure prospective buyers. Additionally, it can help you get ahead of any needed repairs and eliminate surprises.
Making these minor repairs before selling your home can help with your home’s appeal.
Your home’s curb appeal will be the first impression a prospective buyer has of your home. It can make them rush in or drive away quickly.
