ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSETS
It’s important for potential buyers to see that there is plenty of storage. Remove any unnecessary items from your closets and tidy up. Put any folded items in pretty baskets or organize them by color.
Clean and organize your kitchen countertops. Don’t even leave a box of cereal out. It should look very tidy and give buyers the impression that there is plenty of space to prepare food.
KITCHEN CABINETS & PANTRY
Clean, clean, clean, and organized. Make sure everything is minimal and pack away anything you don’t use regularly. Clean the pots and pans, organize the pantry, put everything in its rightful place.
REMOVE PERSONAL PHOTOS & MINIMIZE WALL HANGINGS
You have a beautiful family but buyers want to imagine THEIR family in the home. It’s also a good idea to remove any items that may deter a buyer. This includes religious items. I know, I know. But believe us on this one, it’s best to make your home appealing to a majority of people.
DON’T FORGET THE CRAWL SPACE, ATTIC, BASEMENT OR STORAGE SPACE
Buyers will poke around. They’re probably going to go into the attic and basement, if they are physically able. And some of them will even go into the crawl space, I know because I’ve seen it. These spaces will tell a potential buyer A LOT about the home…so tidy UP, make sure nothing is broken, there aren’t any issues from water damage, etc.
CURB APPEAL: LANDSCAPING
When a buyer drives up to your house, you want them to feel like “I’m HOME.” And it’s amazing what a little mulch can do to help with curb appeal. Clean up the yard, trim bushes, plant a few plants to add color, mow the yard, and mulch mulch mulch.
