I am often asked by my seller clients, "What can I do to make sure my homes shows well?" What a fantastic question and I love it when they ask me before I bring it up. This just goes to show you that it is becoming more apparent to sellers that not only do you need aggressive marketing & the right price but, you have to also make sure that your home shows better than your competition.
Well, there are many things you can do as a seller to get your home ready to show. Most things depend on the current condition your home is in. However, there are two things that EVERYONE needs to do when selling their home:
1. DE-CLUTTER 2. DE-PERSONALIZE.
As a rule of thumb there should be no more than 1-2 objects on each flat surface of your home. If you don't absolutely need it or can story it out of sight, do it! Also, when buyers walk through a home they are trying to picture their belongings and raising their family in that home. Pictures of you and your family detract from this and often distract the buyers as they walk through your home because they are busy trying to figure out if they know you or not.
