When you are selling your home, it is particularly important to have your house ready and looking attractive for any buyers walking in your home. Some may want to make their homes look like a magazine cover picture, but we all know that sometimes that is almost impossible, unless you want to spend a generous amount of money to have decorators and professional organizers come in your home and do the job for you. In this article you will find some tips on how to get your home ready and looking nice for any buyers to fall in love with your home and want to put an offer right away for the highest amount of money possible.

Let us start with the curb appeal. This is one of the most important aspects to getting your home ready because it will be the very first impression someone will have of your home when they arrive. Take these considerations:

  • Make sure your roof and gutters are clean and free of debris.
  • Clean your windows inside and out and make sure that they are free from obstructions like overgrown bushes or trees.
  • Trim bushes, trees, and shrubs all around your property.
  • Power wash your driveway, walkways, and sides of your property.
  • Do small paint touchups of the outside of your home and front door.
  • Make sure your lawn is pruned and mostly free of weeds.
  • When preparing your flower beds, make sure to have new mulch and that they are neat.
  • Remove any building material, scraps or household items from your property.

Let us continue to the inside of your home. When prospects enter your home, they are looking for key factors to make themselves want to buy your house. Here are some of them:

  • Make sure your house smells good, open your windows, and let it air out for a few days prior to showings. On the day of showings, bake cookies, this smell is one of the most “home” smells people can relate to when buying a home.
  • Make sure your carpets/floors are cleaned and free of stains.
  • Remove all clutter from the house, specially from your countertops and tables
  • Remove all unnecessary furniture throughout the house leaving walkways open and making the spaces look larger.
  • Remove all magnets and items from the front of your refrigerator.
  • Pick and choose which picture or wall art you would like to leave on your walls, the less the better and the rooms will feel bigger and spacious.
  • Make sure drapes and blinds are clean and open to let the natural light in.
  • Be sure you either put your pets’ object away or make them look organized and clean.
  • Make sure your bathrooms are clean, from showers to toilets and countertops are free of items and clutter, towels are fresh and neatly hung and most important, that they smell good.
