Keep your home Clean: A clean home sells faster and for more money than an identical home that isn't.
Depersonalize your home: Take down any family photos and/or personal items. This makes it easier for Buyers to focus on the features of your home.
Store any valuables in order to minimize the chances of something getting broken during a showing.
Doing away with Clutter: Clear away any unnecessary clutter in your kitchen, bedrooms and elsewhere in the home so Buyers can see its unique features.
Make Repairs and Improvements: Repair any broken items in the home such as windows, rails, holes in the wall, etc… Most buyers expect to make some changes to their purchased home themselves but a little elbow grease before listing can go a long way to maximizing the selling price of your home.
Add a fresh coat of paint to the home in light/neutral colors to give your home that extra pop.
Outside your home: When Buyers come to view your home, the outside of your home is the first thing they see, so why not make it sparkle. Fix up your lawn and paint those aging pillars. If your roof is aging, have it redone. The fewer things a buyer has to do, makes your home that much more appealing to them.
Home Staging: A good Home Stager can be a key part of the Selling process.
