- Channel Your Inner Neat Freak
You always knew your tidying tendencies would come in handy one day. Now it’s time to clutter-bust your way to buyers’ hearts! Focus on closets, to show ample storage available.
- Rearrange the Furniture
Once all the clutter’s out of the way, take a step back and look at the big picture. Can buyers flow freely through your home without bumping into things? If not, you’ve got work to do!
- Think Like a Buyer
Cleaning your home for home showings is common sense. But many folks underestimate just how clean it needs to be. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill weekend tidy-up. Think of it as spring cleaning on steroids.
- Set the Table
Staging paints a picture for potential buyers so they can envision life in your home, and nothing represents family life quite like the dinner table. Keep things simple by setting just two places at the table or arranging a decorative centerpiece on top of a neutral table runner.
- Bring the Outside In
Now that your personal “clutter” is gone, decorate with plants or fresh fruit in a bowl on a counter. They brighten and decorate without being too “personal”, at little or no cost.
