9 Key Tips To Sell Your Home

First impressions are everything.


Apply these suggestions so your home

doesn’t overstay its welcome on the market.



This is one of the most important steps.  People often judge a book by its cover, and if your home isn’t well kept on the outside, chances are you won’t get much activity on the inside.
Keep up with landscaping – mow the lawn, trim any overgrown hedges and make sure your front walk is presentable.  In addition, remove any outside toys, wash the windows and make your front door welcoming – maybe a fresh door mat or a seasonal wreath.


When a prospective buyer first steps into your home, they should immediately notice the layout.  They shouldn’t be distracted by too much furniture, toys or wall hangings.  Remove everything that you can live without.


When buyers look at multiple properties, they will start to associate certain things with each home so they’ll remember it.  You want your home to be remembered for a nice yard or a great location; not because it was dirty.  Vacuum, dust, make sure the kitchen and bathrooms are clean, and keep the house in a tidy condition – as if you were expecting company.


Potential buyers want to picture themselves in your home, so images of you and your family must go.  Which leads us to…


Get a head start on your move by packing anything you don’t absolutely need.  You can give a buyer a better prospective of the closet space if you remove the seasonal clothes you’re not using at the moment.  People would rather see a neat arrangement of moving boxes in the basement rather than excess clutter.


Before showing your home, open blinds or curtains to filter in natural light.  Turn on any decorative lighting to create a warm atmosphere.


Once you list your home, it’s technically not yours anymore.  What may have worked for you might not be appealing to someone else; so don’t be afraid to move your furniture around.  Highlight the features and focal points in each room, such as a fireplace, a window seat, etc.


Only if the color palette in your home might possibly remind your potential buyers of being under a circus tent should you consider slapping some neutral tones on the walls.  Ultimately, people will change the walls to what they prefer, but it doesn’t hurt to give them a clean slate to work with.


If you want to add a little something extra, a potted plant on the front doorstep, fireplace candelabra, and dining room floral arrangement are all nice touches.
