You only have one first impression!
Statistics show that people decide within the first few seconds if a home is a possibility. It’s important to help buyers see themselves living in your home. Leaving the home and taking your pets with you during showings allows buyers to take more time in considering your home.
The kitchen comes first
You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling your kitchen, that’s how important it is.
Take the home out of your house
The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Start Packing... Consider removing family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Staging your home simply means to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.
Conceal the critters
Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean.
Light it up
Maximize the light in your home by turning on all the lights and opening up the blinds. Good lighting is essential and lays the foundation for a great showing.
Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will look for storage, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.
