When you are getting ready to put your home on the market, it is important to take a critical eye to how it appears to other. There are some basic guidelines: declutter, depersonalize, & deep clean. 

To make your home really stand out to potential buyers, consider these ideas once your personal items have been stored away and the house is squeaky-clean:

  • Draw eyes to a room’s best attribute, whether that’s a beautiful fireplace or a window with a great view, by strategically placing a decorative accent like a vase or large plant nearby.
  • Organize closets, cabinets, & pantries, leaving more space than you typically would. This can give potential buyers the impression that your home has storage to spare.
  • Make a room feel larger by removing area rugs to give the appearance of unbroken floor space.
  • Add fluffy white towels to the bathrooms. The neutral hue implies cleanliness and can give the room a spa-like feel.
  • Widen the walking area around major pieces of furniture, such as beds and sofas. A few extra inches can make all the difference.

By following these tips, you can help buyers see themselves living a happy life in the home. As a bonus, you’ve already begun packing!
