white kitchen, hardwood floors

As sellers, we get so used to our own space, that we don’t realize how our home comes across to others. This may step on toes or hurt feelings, but as a real estate professional I’m here to be shoot you straight and be honest with you.  Keep these things in mind when showing your home!

Your house needs to look AND smell clean, do everything you can to make that happen before you list.

Clean up & repair any pet damage and do your best to keep signs of pets minimal while your house is for sale.

Clutter…Clean it up. Get rid of it. Box it up. Put it away. Out of sight, out of mind!

Clear out all signs of life, get it really clean and leave out just a few styled decorations on the counter.

Remove as much as you can (seasonal clothes can be packed away, time to donate things you’ve been meaning to, etc), line up clothes by color, keep shelves neat and clear the floor completely.

Make your most personal spaces as neutral and comfortable for strangers as possible.

Tidy the yard fully to make a great first impression and set the tone for how you care for your home, inside and out.

Put your laundry away in closets or baskets with some kind of cover.

You want to have people come to your home, feel great while they are there, fall in love with the idea of living there themselves and, ultimately, make an offer to purchase your home.
