Are you ready to list your home for sale? If so, congratulations!
Before you have your photos taken and schedule an open house, there are a few things you should consider that can spruce up your house’s aesthetics and make it more appealing for prospective buyers.
Paint the door
A fresh coat of paint on the front door can go a long way to refresh the look and feel of your home exterior. It also sets the stage for the rest of the home. Just be sure to stick with a color that works well the rest of the home. If you want a color that that stands out, a red door is usually a good choice.
Hire a cleaning service
In addition to picking up loose items around the house, it’s always a good idea to get the house sparkly clean. This includes the bathroom too. Place any personal items away and out of sight.
Set the table
Sellers often neglect this! It’s a good idea to dress up the dining table and make it look warm and inviting. You don’t have to set food out, but plates and flowers can really change the look.
De-clutter and de-personalize
Get rid of clutter, children’s toys and remove family photos, heirlooms or other items that represent you or your family. The goal in photos and an open house is to present a home that buyers can envision as their own.
