If the Buyer can’t visualizes themselves in your home? They won’t buy. Remove family photos, awards, collections and collectibles. Let your home speak for itself.
Buyers want to see how much space and storage they’ll get. Clean out your closets, pantry, cabinets, drawers, under the bed. Make it neat, storage boxes or containers should match. Sort clothes by color in your closets and remember that a closet looks much larger at 25% capacity.
Act as if your Mother-in-Law in on her way and make it sparkle! Dust, clean baseboards, vacuum, mop, clean windows, doors. Set up a schedule to keep it clean with morning and evening chores.That last minute appointment may be the one that sells your home.
Stay Neutral. The lighter the color, the larger the space will look. Consider grays, light beiges, and greiges (gray-beiges). The best selling colors are grays and greiges with First Time Buyers.
Lighting fixtures, cabinet and door hardware, light switches and outlets can date a home. Swap out brass fixtures for nickel or oil rubbed bronze and spend a few dollars on new light switches and outlets. If the Buyers feel your home is dated, they may submit a lower offer to reflect that.
