Does your home have a feature that’s outdated, or specific to your tastes/needs, but not the general buyer’s? Is there an obvious quirk that buyers might not love? If so, get creative to help buyers envision themselves in your home.
Are you getting ready to sell? Depending upon your house, repairs or improvements can sometimes increase your selling price and/or buyer pool. Likewise, if your home is in need of one of these large (or time sensitive) repairs, you may be best off doing it prior to putting the home on the market.
Selling soon? Do yourself a favor & begin to par down your belongings. Not only will this simplify your move & give you a fresh start in your new space, your home will show better. Staying put? Eliminating excess stuff cuts down on time spent cleaning & organizing. Simplifying your space is even said to provide a new sense of clarity & ease.

A clean, staged home not only looks, smells, & shows better, it just feels more move in ready. A spotless home often gives buyers a piece of mind that it was well cared for & needs “less work” than a comparable home. It can even feel more solid & of better quality than a home that hasn’t had that same attention to detail.
If you’re preparing to sell your home, you’ve probably got a few projects to wrap up before listing. When chipping away at your list, know your limits. There’s nothing more frustrating to a seller than spending time & money to repair or improve something, only for a buyer to say, “But you shouldn’t have!”
