Selling your home can be an overwhelming process. Most of the time, sellers are anxious to get their home sold as quickly as possible. While market conditions can be a factor on how quickly your home sells, there are definitely tricks that can help it show better, often resulting in a quick sale with a higher sale price!
Take a peek below at 5 tips to decluttering your home before you put it on the market!
Remove all family photos & personal items. By removing the distractions, buyers are able to envision themselves in their home.
Make sure to also remove valuable from plain sight for safety reasons!
2) Clear Out Access Furniture
Remove access or worn furniture. Additionally, make sure that your furniture is proportionate to the room size. A large couch in a small living room can make the room feel smaller.
Staging companies can come in & help you move things around to highlight your home’s charm!
3) Clean Out Your Closets
To help highlight storage spaces, keep closets half full. Having clothes packed tightly makes buyers think there isn’t enough storage space for their things!
Pack up out of season items & donate or sell items that you no longer use.
4) Make a Great First Impression
Primp your front yard! Buyers often drive neighborhoods they want to buy in or drive by home they see listed. Make a great first impression by keeping your lawn mowed, free of debris & sprucing up your landscaping. Keep your porch clean & inviting to help get buyers through the door.
5) Clear the Kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most popular rooms in the home. It’s also the most scrutinized by buyers. Keep it looking fresh by clearing the countertops of clutter. Keep decor simple and remove countertop appliances such as coffee maker, toaster, blender, etc.
