Prepping Your Home For Sale

Prepping Your Home For Sale

The first impression is the most valuable marketing tool you have when selling your home.  Buyers shop more online now than ever before!  You need to make your property standout by assuring that it looks great in photographs.  One huge mistake is bold paint colors.  These do not photograph well, so neutralize the paint!  Reduce clutter, reduce furniture and rugs.  Depersonalize by removing all photographs, as well as diplomas and other personal mementos.  Always remember that you are selling square footage, not your design capabilities.  People want to see the floor space, and the suggestion of furniture placement.  Minimal design is always best to appeal to a broad range of buyers.  Keep it simple.  In today's market wallpaper has to go!  This is a simple remedy - Kilz the wallpaper, use a Venecian plaster technique to apply texturing, then paint!  A simple, but cost efficient way to update!  Make sure everything works in the home.  If you know of anything you have an issue with, fix it!  It will be discovered by the inspector, so you might as well get it done beforehand.  Also, make sure the keys work in the front door.  Nothing is more frustrating than trying to show a house when you cannot open the front door!  Keep looking for more blogs like this that can help you sell quick, and for more money!
