Preparing your home for sale can feel daunting. But with some effort and attention to detail, you may increase your chance of selling it quickly, at the best possible price. So, where do you begin? Don’t worry. We want to help you feel as comfortable and confident as possible before you list your home. So we gathered a few tips on how to prepare your home for the market.

Declutter and Depersonalize

Taking this step will make the sales process feel real. After all, you have invested so much time, care, and love into your home. Removing evidence of that isn’t always fun. However, your goal is to help prospective buyers feel this could be their home. The best way to do that is to declutter and depersonalize. So, remove any personal items (like family photos and memorabilia). And minimize the amount of furniture and decor.

Make Repairs

Take the time to make any repairs you have been putting off. Fix leaky faucets, replace broken light fixtures, and repair damaged walls or floors. Potential buyers have a keen eye. They will notice these issues. And if there is still significant repair work, they may decide not to make an offer.  

Clean and Stage

A clean, staged home makes all the difference in the world to potential buyers. You can do a deep clean yourself or hire outside help to ensure you make the best impression. Once that thorough cleaning is complete, it is time to stage the home. Your local realtor can help you with this step. The goal is to highlight the best features of your home. This step may involve rearranging furniture, adding decorative touches, and even setting the table.

Enhance Curb Appeal

Ensure your home leaves a lasting first impression. Take the time to trim your bushes, mow the lawn, and add flowers or other potted plants. If any exterior parts of your home need some TLC, now would be a good time to tackle those projects. Are you ready to sell your home? Contact Dennis Schick to get started.
