Are you looking to list your house? What are things you need to do to get your property ready to list?
First and foremost DECLUTTER!!! The best thing to do is get rid of clutter. Too much furniture in a small space can make the room look cluttered and hard for a buyer to see what the room actually looks like. It is hard for buyers and their agents to look past too many Knick Knacks and wall hangings so pack them up.
Depersonalize…. When a home looks and feels like the seller’s house it is hard for the buyer to see themselves living in the home. Take out any of your personal belongings and pack them up.
Furniture Groupings… There is a belief that furniture pushed up against the walls make a room feel larger, but that isn’t the case. You should instead place furniture in cozy conversational groups also keeping in mind you must keep traffic flow. This will help make the room look cozy and larger.
Home Lighting… Having great lighting can make your home look warm and welcoming. To do this increase the wattage in lamps and fixtures. Make sure to have ambient lighting, task lighting and accent lighting. Dark corners can really scare a buyer.
Neutral and Appealing… All rooms of a home should be a neutral fresh color. This will tone down any dated finishes. By neutral color that does not mean only a beige color. Keep in mind Bold colors have a way of reducing offers.
