Once you’ve decided to sell, it’s crucial to get your home in the condition to sell it for top dollar. Here are some easy steps we recommend to display your home in the best light!

1. Declutter and depersonalize: Remove any unnecessary items and personal belongings to create a clean and neutral space that potential buyers can envision themselves in. We also recommend removing any items or photos that you do not want in the photos of your listing.

2. Deep clean: Give your home a thorough cleaning, including floors, windows, walls, and appliances. Pay attention to details like grout, fixtures, and carpets. Hint: When your home is clean, it also gives buyers the perception that you take care of the details and don’t leave deferred maintenance.

3. Make necessary repairs: Fix any visible issues such as leaky faucets, broken tiles, or squeaky doors. Addressing these repairs can make a positive impression on potential buyers.

4. Enhance curb appeal: First impressions matter, so make sure the exterior of your home looks inviting. Trim the lawn, clean the driveway, and consider adding some potted plants or fresh flowers. A nice American flag also does wonders!

5. Stage your home: Arrange furniture and decor in a way that highlights the best features of each room. Consider hiring a professional stager to maximize the appeal of your home.

6. Neutralize colors: If your walls are painted in bold or unique colors, consider repainting them in neutral tones. This can help potential buyers visualize their own style in the space.

7. Improve lighting: Ensure that each room is well-lit. Open curtains or blinds to let in natural light, and add additional lighting fixtures if needed.

8. Highlight storage space: Organize closets and storage areas to showcase their potential. Buyers appreciate ample storage options. This one is absolutely crucial because oftentimes the closets are where your extra clutter goes ???? but a great idea if you’re able.

9. Consider small upgrades: Simple upgrades like replacing outdated fixtures, adding a fresh coat of paint of kitchen backsplash, or updating hardware can make a big difference in the overall appeal of your home.

Remember, every home is unique, so it's important to get an assessment on your specific home and get personalized advice from your agent.
