PREPARING YOUR HOME TO SELL?
6 design and organization tips to help you sell, in a jiffy
GET RID OF ANYTHING YOU WON’T BE MOVING
Don’t let your unwanted odds and ends bring down your home’s value. If something isn’t worthy of moving to your new spot, it’s likely not worth staging with.
REMOVE DISTRACTING AND STYLE SPECIFIC ITEMS
Many buyers see cosmetic blemishes, like dated wallpaper and heavy curtains, and instantly lose interest. Maximize your audience with a crowd-pleasing, neutral style.
REMOVE PERSONAL CLUTTER
Many buyers get distracted by surface-level clutter and define their impression by this clutter. Remove the clutter, and you will also remove the distraction, allowing potential buyers to see your home for what it is.
REMOVE PERSONAL ITEMS
Again, removing personal elements will help buyers envision their potential life in your space. When doing this, envision a luxurious hotel room and aim for that cozy, homey, yet impersonal feel.
ADD SPECIFIC TOUCHES TO HELP BUYERS ENVISION THEIR POTENTIAL LIVES IN YOUR SPACE
For example, when appealing to families, stage a guest bedroom as another child’s room, or as a playroom, rather than as a home office.
SET THE AMBIANCE WITH FLOWERS
White hydrangeas, roses or peonies are my go-to classic picks. Flowers add that extra touch of homeyness and always convey good, positive feelings.
