The hardest thing about selling your home is being objective, and yes you really need to be objective. Why ? Because most sellers are of course partial to their homes. Trying to see your home objectively can really be a challenge.

So here are some tips to make your home more sellable and they are often overlooked by sellers but absolutely make a difference when potential buyers are touring (and these changes cost very little money.)

  • Make sure all windows in the home are freshly washed – shining clean windows let the sunlight in
  • Vacuum all the rugs and hardwood floors
  • Make sure ceiling fans, a/c and heat vents are dust free
  • All closets are neatly organized (buyers will look in all closets when touring a place, just as you would – if they are unorganized or overflowing with stuff buyers will automatically assume there is a lack of closet space)
  • If you live in a house curb appeal is key – buyers will assume if the outside of a house is run down then they won’t even be interest in seeing the house inside
  • Make sure all dishes are cleared from the sink and put away
  • Neatly organize laundry in baskets so it doesn’t appear cluttered and disorganized
  • Remove excess items from counter tops in a kitchen to maximize counters only keep 1 appliance when you are having a showing – e.g. a coffee pot
