It’s my passion to make this process as pain-free as it can be and with over eight years of experience helping sellers list, stage, and find the perfect buyer, I’m ready to step in and help you do the same.
One of the often forgotten, but extremely important aspects of selling is making sure your home is styled, cleaned, and looking its best. You want to attract the right buyer quickly and I’ve got a helpful checklist for you to look over if selling is in your future!
Make the most of first impressions: mow the lawn, shovel the walk, weed the garden, and keep your front porch or steps clean and neat.
Add a fresh coat of paint to the front door and create a fresh, welcoming environment for newcomers.
Add new slipcovers to sofas and keep fresh flowers in the entryway.
Touch up paint and baseboards.
Don’t forget to fix dripping faucets and replacing burnt out bulb.
Make sure cabinets and doors open and close without sticking.
Remove any unnecessary items from closets and storage areas to show how great your storage space is.
Don’t underestimate your bathroom! It can sell your home, so let it shine. Repair damaged or discoloured caulking in the tubs and showers and make sure to put out new towels, mats and shower curtains.
Show prospective buyers how relaxing your bedroom is by removing excess furniture and adding colourful bedspreads and neutral window covers.
Open curtains and blinds to let in natural light during the day and keep lights on inside and outside when showing at night.
Keep pets out of your home or in the backyard.
Don’t forget to turn off your TV.
Consider staying out of the house on days when it’s being shown. If you need to be at home, relax and try not to distract potential buyers while they’re looking around.
Don’t apologize! It’s ok if your home isn’t perfect and it’s not necessary for you to apologize for any issues.
Tidy up the living room, bathroom, and kitchen. Update the hardware on kitchen cabinets, Small things like this can go a long way! If you’re worried about time, hire professional cleaners or painters to help get your house ready. Remember, people walking through your home during an open house would rather see how great your home really looks than hear how great it could look “with a little work.
