Buyers need to be able to imagine their own photos on the walls, and most cannot do that if sellers have personal photos up. Don’t make any buyer ask, “I wonder what kind of people live in this home?”
If home sellers have not used something in over a year it is time to consider selling it on E-bay/craigslist or donating it. Sellers will be moving anyway and now is a great time to get a start on the move.
All cabinets and closets need to be reorganized and remove one half of what is normally inside. Buyers will open all the closet and cabinet doors. If the buyer sees a clean organized space then they are more likely to see themselves living there.
Homes show better with less furniture, keep the minimum amount needed. Reduce the size of your dining room table by removing extra leaves. Leave just enough furniture in each room to feature the room’s purpose but with plenty of room to move around.
If the seller intends to take window coverings, built-in appliances or fixtures with them they should, remove them before showing the home. Any heirloom fixtures should be removed and replaced.
If a buyer won’t get out of her agent’s car because she doesn’t like the exterior of your home, you’ll never get her inside.
We wish you lots of luck! And we hope this list helps you get top dollar when selling a home.
