First impressions matter more than you think...especially when you're selling your home! Here's how to wow buyers before they even step through the door.
Make Any Repairs
Have any lingering to-dos? Be sure to complete them before you list! You'll want to replace any missing shingles, do some powerwashing, repair cracks in your driveway, and add a fresh coat of paint wherever you need it.
Clear Out Clutter
Is your yard filled with clutter? Wrangle up any toys, bikes, equipment, or excess lawn ornaments and put them in storage—or throw them out entirely.
Spruce Up Your Landscaping
Before adding new landscaping, get rid of any dead plants and address brown spots on your lawn. Then, consider incorporating some low-maintenance bushes, flowers, or potted plants.
Once buyers make their way inside, it's time to really show off the beauty of your home! Here's how to do it.
Tackle All Maintenance Issues
It's best to make any repairs before a buyer—or their home inspector—walks through your home. Getting rid of wood rot, patching leaks, tuning up your HVAC system, adding new caulk and weather stripping, and replacing loose tiles are just a few common fixes you'll want to address.
Eliminate Unpleasant Odors
Believe it or not, your home's scent can make or break a sale. Eliminate unpleasant odors by getting rid of trash, dirty laundry, mold, or mildew. If you have pets, it might be best to keep them out of the home during showings...especially if they have a strong smell.
Do Some Staging
Want buyers to really envision themselves in your space? Staging can work wonders—and it doesn't have to be hard or expensive. Start by neutralizing your decor, rearranging your furniture to maximize space, eliminating clutter, and letting in tons of natural light.
When it comes to selling a home, it's the small details that matter the most. Here are a few final touches that can really make an impact!
Set the Table
Set up your eating areas—including your dining room, breakfast nook, or kitchen bar—with clean plates, utensils, and napkins. Actual food isn't necessary!
Incorporate Some Greenery
Add some natural charm into your space by bringing fresh cut flowers, wreaths, or potted plants into your home. Not only do they provide a pop of color, but they also smell wonderful!
Bringing in some thoughtfully-placed accents will add warmth to your home—just don't overdo it! An open vase with fruits or flowers, neutral artwork, mirrors, soap dishes, and books can all help bring a space to life.
Last Minute Tips Before a Showing:
- Clear away any outdoor debris, including leaves, snow, bikes, toys, or animal waste.
- Make arrangements for children and pets.
- Brew some coffee in the kitchen for a pleasant aroma.
- Open all the curtains and blinds.
- Remove clutter and ensure that everything is put away in its proper place.
