Tips for preparing your home to sell
Homebuyers want to envision themselves in your home which is why preparing is crucial to a quick sale. Follow these steps to prepare your home for showings.
Declutter & Clean
Begin by removing items such as knick-knacks and other personal memorabilia. Clean counters, carpets, hardwood floors, windows, and bathrooms. Your home does not have to be spotless, but it should appear clean and tidy.
Curb Appeal is Everything
The exterior of your house is the first thing potential homebuyers see so make sure you maximize their first impression. Mow the lawn, remove weeds and dead plants, clean gutters, and store toys in the garage.
Hire a Professional Photographer
One surefire way to get people interested in your home is to have professional photos taken. There is a noticeable difference between photos taken from a smartphone and photos taken from a professional camera.
