Preparing your home for sale

When you are preparing your home for sale it can be hard to get a perspective on your own home, but try to look at it, imagining that you are the potential buyer.
What's your First Impression?
does anything need to be cleaned, painted, repaired, tossed out to make your house as attractive as possible?
Whether it's staging, fluffing things up a bit, decorating and or de-cluttering, try and keep it neutral.
A contemporary and minimalist space with a limited number of personal items appeal to most buyers and ensures the best results when selling.

Staging vs. De-cluttering

Nobody is fooled by clever staging that camouflages worn out systems and appliances. Staging a house can be tricky and stressful for seniors and families with children and pets.

It takes time, effort and money to stage a house and if you are living in a staged home while it's for sale and being shown to potential buyers, you may have to get use to living in a decorated space that needs to look picture-perfect on short notice.

In terms of staging and interior decorating my clients only seek professional help about 20% of the time.
That may seem surprising considering the majority of the houses I sell look really polished.
Believe it or not, that's just the hard work on behalf of the sellers who are committed to following my cleaning, fluffing, and de-cluttering.



Cleaning and De-Cluttering is the Most Inexpensive and Most Effective

Cleaning and de-cluttering are the most inexpensive and most effective options for preparing your house for sale.
A house that is easy to navigate, that gleams with cleanliness will be miles ahead of similar properties that are less well-cared for.
A clean house sends a message to potential buyers that the house is well cared for and is one of the most effective sell techniques that you can utilize.
De-Cluttering  is not converting your house to an empty space, it is selectively pruning anything that distracts buyers from seeing what they are getting with your house.

This has always been the effective way to prepare your house for sale. The goals is to help potential buyers to envision your house as theirs and
