It is very important to stage your home before putting it on the market in order to attract the best most qualified buyer! Here are a couple of tips that will help insure a smooth listing process.

 

         Spring clean!

 

            -Think hotel, minimal personal items .

                        -Deep clean your home 

                        -Consider a fresh coat of paint

                        -New Screens on the windows

                        -Clean / replace grout

                        -Get your carpets shampooed          

 

              

           Yard!

-It is the first thing potential buyers see! You want to stage it as “appealing and easy to maintain.”

                        -Mow your lawn

                        -Fix the sprinkler system 

 (Future buyers are going to want it fixed anyway)

                        -Trim all over grown bushes trees etc.

                        -Change your welcome mat

                        -Paint /Clean your front door

                        -Plant annuals in your flowerbeds

            Don’t forget the backyard! Tidy up, mow, trim, pressure wash porch/patio.

 

              Pack up!

-You are going to move, so the best thing to do is get a head start! Pack winter clothes, holiday décor, and extras, (towels, linens, and all the things you don’t use everyday.)

 

Maintenance

-Check your home and ask yourself, if I was buying this home (again,) what would I want fixed?
