5 Things to do before selling your house

Once you list your house, life can get extra busy with scheduling showings.  Here are a few things you can do before you list, to make your home more appealing to potential buyers:

Declutter – Get rid of any additional furniture that doesn’t serve a real, functional purpose.  You could sell it or put in storage, but you’ll want to get it out of your house to give buyers a chance to envision the space as their own, and showcase as much of your space as possible.

Hide the toys – Unless you have a designated playroom, toys should always be hidden.  Ensure they’re hidden away before any listing photos are taken or showings are scheduled.

Work on the curb appeal – You don’t need to give your front yard a complete overhaul, but make sure it looks inviting.  Mow your lawn, put some planters next to the front door and get rid of any dirt or cobwebs.

Clean your interior doors – You don’t realize how dirty your doors are until you start cleaning them! Make sure your doorknobs aren’t sticky and there are no fingerprints all over the door.

Clean your windows – Just like the doors, sometimes we don’t notice how dirty our windows are until we start cleaning them! Give them a good clean inside and out; you’ll notice more light and sparkling clean windows will make the entire room feel cleaner.
