Spruce up the outside - The term 'curb appeal' is real! You've heard the old expression, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Clean up 'eye sores', clean the gutters, repair or remove unsightly fencing, trim over-grown trees and shrubs, weed and mulch the beds and add a few flowers if the season permits.
What door are they coming in - Make the entrance into your home inviting. Does the door need painting? Add a new door mat for a clean look.
Declutter - Remove clutter throughout your entire home. This also means the basement, attic and garage. Rent a storage unit if need be. Potential buyers want to imagine their belongings in the home, not whisper about the clutter.
Organize the pantry and closets - Let your potential buyer visualize how your home storage space can suit their needs. Messy closets translate into lack of space.
Painting - Is a bedroom lime green or dark purple? Room color can turn off a buyer. We know it's only paint, but you'd be surprised how many buyers don't want a house they have to immediately work on before moving in. If you can, tone down vibrant colors to more neutral hues. We love antique white!
Clean and deodorize - Clean from top-to-bottom and eliminate bad odors. It's that simple.
