Preparing Your House for the Market


If you’ve made the decision to sell your home, there are steps you can take to prepare your house for the market. Follow these tips to ensure your house is ready for showing.

Curb Appeal
It’s the first thing potential buyers will see so make sure the exterior of your home looks clean and fresh. Remove any debris and trim plants, bushes and shrubs. Also, consider giving your front door and shutters a new coat of paint.

Clean the Inside
Remove any carpet stains. Consider having wood floors and carpets professionally cleaned. Dust your furniture and de-clutter your home. Remove large family photos as potential buyers want to see themselves in the house. Put up any pet bowls, toys and leashes as many people don’t want to think about a pet in their future home.

Check out the Kitchen and Bathrooms
Make sure your kitchen and bathrooms are immaculate. Even if you don’t have new appliances, you can make a good impression by deep-cleaning these rooms. Make sure your counters are clean and de-cluttered. Clean your appliances and organize your fridge inside and out.

If you can afford to paint even one room in your house, do it! For any rooms painted in bright, non-neutral colors, consider adding a fresh coat of paint in a neutral beige or gray as it could really make an impact on potential buyers.
